What A Debut !

Hamilton, ON, Canada / AM900 CHML

What a debut !

The Tiger Cats first game at the new Tim Hortons Field was nothing short of  incredible .

ESPN superstars Chris Berman and John Saunders were there, the CFL Commissioner dropped by and there was  ear splitting cameo appearance by a Canadian Forces fighter jet to signal the beginning of the Labour Day Classic.

The Tiger Cats and Argos didn’t disappoint either ; it was a nail biting, on the edge of your seat ending with the  hometown team  christening their new home with a victory.

But let’s not kid ourselves, the star of the show was the new stadium, Tim Hortons Field.

We all know the 11th hour drama that preceded the  Labour Day Classic.

We got all kinds of  scenarios of what to expect, including the jokes about hard hats and work boots, but what we saw yesterday was truly impressive.

Yes, there’s  still work to be done to  complete  the  top section of the west grandstand  and a few spots need a some  paint, but the overwhelming majority of fans I talked to were ‘over the top’ impressed with the stadium.

It was a long and winding road, with more than a few detours,  that got us to this point.

But , we have our new stadium, and if the opening act is any indicator, it’s going to make us proud.
