Run Or Dye

Run around Hamilton’s Bayfront Park to raise funds for Hamilton Children’s Hospital Foundation, have people throw multi-coloured powder on you, and look like a walking kaleidoscope.

Cats Fall to Stampeders

The Hamilton Tiger Cats showed moments of promise, but the result bore a striking resemblance to pretty much all of their other games in their 20-14 CFL season.

Labour Day is Looming…

With just over a couple weeks to go, the countdown to the annual Labour Day Classic between the Cats and Argos is on. The HOPE is that the game will take place at Tim Hortons Field. The fear is that the stadium still might not be completed. It’s going down to the wire. Today, workers […]
