Tiger, tiger, burning bright

In the forests of the night,

What immortal hand or eye

Could frame thy fearful symmetry? In what distant ...

Oh, never mind!

Who are we kidding.

These are the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

When they line up in far-off Lotusland on Friday against the B.C. Lions it’ll be a cat fight. Without claws.

So far the Ticats have shown to be the CFL’s most unfortunate, or shoddiest team. Perhaps both. They been penalty-wracked. They’ve appeared undisciplined. That’s shoddy.

They lost their shiny new quarterback, Zach Collaros, when he collided with a linebacker, or, football’s version of a train wreck. Sitting at 1-4, Hamilton has lost three games by four points or less. That’s just star-crossed.

“We’ve been in three out of our four losses and literally, without exaggeration, it would’ve only taken one play in each of those games to win,” said head coach Kent Austin, this week.
