Welcome to the Grey Cup live blog with The Vancouver Sun’s Rod Black. To get in the mood, hit refresh on your browser.

2:48 Last year, the Tiger-Cats won the Grey Cup on home turf and that seemed to trigger something in the team. Now the Blue Bombers are coming to town. Will this be their year? Tune in for our live blog today (from 2:50 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.) as Rod brings you all the information on how each team is preparing.

2:35 This game is sandwiched between the bye week and all the pre-season games. So the rest of the league might be missing out. It’s going to be a busy weekend of games for the RedBlacks, Riders, Alouettes, Bombers, Tiger-Cats and Argonauts. Be sure to follow along with us.

2:10 These Ticats have lost at least 10 games in a row. Where will they end up?

2:06 Asked last year what they’d like to get out of the season, the Tiger-Cats told me “To come to the Grey Cup, win the Grey Cup, and go back again.” Ticats fans are fired up! Can they take the Grey Cup back home? Tune in for our live blog today (from 2:50 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.)

1:52 Twitter seems to be mixed with opinion on this week’s games. Can the Tiger-Cats get into the dance? We’ll be covering all the games. Thanks for joining us.

1:33 Last year, Tiger-Cats head coach June Jones went for it on fourth down to try to ice the game in the closing minutes and hoped for a last-minute touchdown pass. It fell incomplete and we have the B.C. Lions. Can the Tiger-Cats do the same against the Lions? Tune in for our live blog today (from 1:50 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.)

15. With the exception of the Grey Cup, the Ford Centre seats 7,000. Wouldn’t 7,000 people be nice for a Ticats home game? Should the Ticats at least think about putting some seats in the stands for fans who can’t get in? Tune in for our live blog today (from 1:50 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.)
