CFL 2010.09.11: Alouettes 27 – Tiger-Cats 6
It wasn’t a great game and I got bogged down with a lot of other work until now, thus put this one on the back burner for a while. With another busy spell coming, I figure it’s now or never. So, sorry for the late post.
CFL 2010.09.06: Labour Day Classic – Tiger-Cats 28 – Argonauts 13
The Labour Day Classic between the Toronto Argonauts and Hamilton Tiger-Cats at sold-out Ivor Wynne Stadium.
The Tiger-Cats won 28-13, but the game wasn’t a pretty one from a photographic point of view. Not a whole lot of good action photos of the offense, though the defense didn’t disappoint.
CFL 2010.09.06: Labour Day Classic – Fans & Tailgating
As I did last year, I spent some time over at Scott Park field to take in some Labour Day Classic tailgating. But this year I also wandered around the stadium a bit to get a better feel for the unique environment around Ivor Wynne. Perhaps Tiger-Cats fans take the urban setting a bit for granted and don’t realize how special it is now in the era of highly refined and researched ‘driveway to driveway’ stadium experiences.
2010.07.16: Hamilton 28 – Winnipeg 7
Tiger-Cats wide receiver Maurice Mann pulls in his second touchdown of the game over Winnipeg Blue Bombers defensive back Donald Brown during the third quarter at Ivor Wynne Stadium in Hamilton.
Mann and Cats running back DeAndra’ Cobb tallied two touchdowns each.
2010.07.10: Calgary 23 – Hamilton 22
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats lost their 2010 home opener in a close game against the Calgary Stampeders but there were some bright spots, such as the first quarter 98 yard punt return for a touchdown by Marcus Thigpen, hurdling over Stampeders punter Burke Dales in the photo above.
2009.10.31: Hamilton 24 – Saskatchewan 6
Considering the two previous home losses, it was fair to wonder whether spectators attending the Hamilton Tiger-Cats Halloween game against the Saskatchewan Roughriders would be in for a trick or a treat.
Mother Nature was leaning more towards tricks with 60 km/h wind gusts that bent the poles holding the netting behind the east goalposts and had the south grandstand light standards swaying.
2009.10.12: Winnipeg 38 – Hamilton 28
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers were back in town looking to avenge their July 18th ‘Spygate’ loss. And avenge they did, spoiling Thanksgiving for the Tiger-Cats.
2009.09.25: Montreal 42 – Hamilton 8
Everyone knew this matchup against the Montreal Alouettes would be a difficult one for the Cats, but there was still hope for a win. Unfortunately it didn’t work out for the Cats this time.
2009.09.18: Hamilton 24 – Calgary 17
The night of AB3
Can’t say the Cats play was that impressive, but at least they were able to make enough plays to overcome what was looking to be a first half disaster in the making, and take advantage of key Calgary penalties in the second half to pull off another come from behind win at home. Arland Bruce III had two key touchdowns, the winner on a pass from Adam Tafralis when I think most people at the game were expecting the Cats to go for another short yardage quarterback keeper – the play Tafralis seems to be destined to repeat this year as the third string quarterback. Nice though to see him pull off a long pass to Bruce.
2009.09.07: Labour Day Classic – Hamilton 34 – Toronto 15
Nice to see the Ticats keep the home winning streak going by giving the Argos payback for the July 1st loss…
Here’s a huge selection of images in basic chronological order. While a few of the bigger plays didn’t come my way, I’m pretty happy with my take from this game.
2009.09.07: Labour Day Classic – Tailgating
When one thinks of tailgating it’s probably of diehard NFL fans arriving at the stadium parking lot early in the morning to grill and drink to excess for the game later that afternoon. Buffalo certainly has a near mythical tailgating reputation.
So as I was heading down from the Ivor Wynne pressbox at about 1:30 Monday afternoon, pondering what to do for the next 2.5 hours until kickoff, I looked over at Scott Park and realized there was a fairly decent sized tailgate scene happening. Usually I spend the pre-game warmups looking for candid shots of players, but at this point in the season I already have a good selection of such images and decided to head over to the tailgate instead.
