CFL Gameday: Hamilton at British Columbia (July 22, 2011)

With a vote of confidence in his pocket from Lions owner David Braley, BC Lions coach Wally Buono is hopeful that his team will begin to turn around their thus far woeful season on Friday night.

The Tiger Cats fresh off their impressive performance against the Saskatchewan Roughriders, make the trek across the Rockies and away from the oppressive Ontario heat, eager to show CFL fans that last weeks first win of the season was the real Tiger Cat team in total sync.

For the home side, a win would seem to be imperative at this point, if for no other reason than to show the fans of the Lions that there is finally some light at what seems to have been a pretty bleak three weeks.
