Is this common?  convert(char(10), TimeStamp, 112) = convert(char(10), GETDATE(), 112)

select convert(char(10), '2014-09-01 00:00:00.000', 112)
result = 2014-09-01

select convert(char(10), GETDATE(), 112)
result = 20140904

You can use 126 if you want to keep the dashes.

I would not recommend converting your timestamp column to varchar however, you should leave the data unconverted to take advantage of indexes. Please see this:
