CFL Gameday: Montreal at Hamilton (July 29, 2011)

Anthony Calvillo will be back in the line up for week five's early Friday Night Football offering, always a good thing for the television audience as he continues his checklist towards the CFL record books.

The Als take to the road for a key match with divisional rival Hamilton, providing the Tiger Cats the chance to make up some ground in the east from their ineffective start of the season, since their stumbles in the first couple of weeks the Cats have come back strong in recent efforts, battling back to .500 on the season.

With both Montreal and Winnipeg holding higher positions in the standings, Friday night is a key game for both the Als and Bombers. With Montreal seeking to keep pace with the Bombers, while the Cats are no doubt anxious to keep their name in the mix when it comes for the quest for first in the CFL East.

Speaking of names, one Avon Cobourne seems to be adding some importance to this match up of Friday night, judging by the number of articles that reflects on Cobourne's time with the Als and his opinions of his former team of late, it would seem that tonight's game may have some special feeling for the TiCat running back, always a good sub theme for a game.

Below you can find information about the first of Friday's two CFL feature attractions, offering up previews and game reviews, as well as other items of note from and other sources.
