CFL Pick 'Em, Final Post-Season Standings: Our mini pick 'em is capped off by two feats unprecedented in pick 'em history.

Well, that's it! Montreal looks good to start, but Calgary's defence gets the stops they need. Burris keeps their O on the field just long enough, and Sandro's right foot does the rest, hitting five field goals to seal the deal.

JPR misses another sweep by one point to grab a convincing win. I'm pretty sure he's the first person in the history of the CFL Post-Season Pick 'Em to get skunked in the semi-finals and then come back to win it all. Congratulations, JPR!

At the other end is Monica Poland with a first of her own: she pulls of a sweep of the 2008 CFL Costanzas, winning both the regular season and post-season trophies. That's never been done before in my time either. Congrats!

Thanks to everyone for another great season. It's been a blast, and hopefully we'll see you all again next June. 'Til then, au revoir!

Thanks Dr J. While I know nothing at all about CFL, hanging out with you guys makes me feel part of the family.

(In case you were wondering, I'm the oddly dressed Uncle crouched in the corner, the one you only see at Christmas, making strange peeping noises and eating nits from my hair).

Well, obviously I am the cousin who shows up and knows absolutely nothing about the gathering, tries to participate and manages to spectacularly not get it right. Thank you for the accolades and for allowing me to come to your party. It was fun and I am glad that I came. Thanks Dr. J for hosting the party and for the lovely awards; I will be waiting by the mailbox for the arrival of my 3 spectacularly expensive and gaudy trophies -- 2 Constanzas and 1 for getting 2 Constanzas.

Always the bridesmaid, never the bride. Congrats, JPR!

Congrats JPR, thanks again to Dr.J for running the show. Lots of fun.

(I hope that wasn't too Sally Field Academy Award for you, T_B_H.)

Thanks Dr. J for getting it all up and running! Its a shame to have to wait until June for the CFL pre-season to get going again...

And how the hell did I blow the first week and still manage to win?

Great job everyone, and enjoy the off-season!

Yes, happy off-season, y'all! See all y'all next year. And for those of you who need some time to plan in advance ... Grey Cup is out west (Calgary) next year ... can anybody else say, "Road trip"? Giddy-up!

I like you...I really, really like you!

Aw, now I feel all warm and fuzzy (that could be the flu though).

Do I get a share of the Costanza, I'm just curious.

Holy cow, tommy, you're absolutely right. I was looking at the spreadsheet sorting and not the actual numbers. It's a Costanza tie! Sorry about that!
