Hamilton is awash in black and gold as the city’s beloved Tiger-Cats prepare to battle the Saskatchewan Roughriders in Sunday's Grey Cup in Regina.

CBC reporter Arti Pole visited Tigertown on Friday, learning the cheers, donning Ticats paraphernalia and checking out the best downtown hotspots for watching the big game.

She even spoke with Hamilton’s mayor, former football announcer Bob Bratina, to hear his dream sports announcer call for how the game will transpire.
