A picture that has inspired a thousand words. Caption This: Hamilton's delayed new Pan Am stadium — Tim Hortons Field.

There will be labour until Labour Day?

News that the Hamilton Tiger-Cats won't play their first two home games at Tim Hortons Field stadium has kicked off a storm of anger, disappointment and frustration among Ticat fans across the city.

The  new stadium won't be ready, the team says, until at least Aug. 16 and maybe not until Labour Day. Until then expect the Ticats to play CFL home games at McMaster University.

The response from Hamiltonians has been noting if not creative. So, here's a challenge for locals and welcomed guests. Caption the photo at the top of this page and we will post some of the best of those responses all day.
