Juno Award winners Hollerado will perform their snappy brand of music as part of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats kickoff bash in downtown Guelph prior to the Tabbies’ home opener against the Edmonton Eskimos on Sunday.

It’s only a suggestion, but the Toronto-based rockers might wish to avoid playing their hit Got To Lose.

If anything, Ticats fans — a patient lot, bless their souls — would prefer a lyrical adjustment, perhaps something along the lines of Got To Win.

Coming off a high-octane loss at Toronto in Week 1, the Ticats, who finished at 6-12 last season, missed the playoffs and haven’t tasted a regular-season win since late October — when the team’s season was effectively already shot — are due for some good vibes.

Just don’t tell ’Cats coach/GM Kent Austin a win in Week 2 is make-or-break. He isn’t buying that.
