CFL Pick 'Em, Week 6: You may be rolling so far, but this week, it's tough pickin' as talent plays talent and skill plays skill. Also, Toronto plays Montreal. Make your picks inside.

Winnipeg comes back at home to keep the B.C. Lions winless. Hamilton gets a nice statement win over the Alouettes (avec Calvillo!) at home. Toronto can't hold on as Edmonton takes advantage of a couple of pass-interference plays to keep their winning streak intact. And Calgary hangs in there for a tough win over in Saskatchewan.

Week 6 sees a couple of streaks on the line, not to mention some pride.


Montreal @ Toronto (Thursday, August 4) Will Toronto be looking to avenge the ugly loss a couple weeks ago? Personally, I'm thinking they'll just be looking for their second win.

Edmonton @ Winnipeg (Friday, August 5) Here's something crazy: last year's cellar dwellers are at the top of their divisions.

Saskatchewan @ B.C. (Friday, August 5) Meanwhile, the two scuffling teams in the West compete for The Self-Esteem Cup. For whom do you have less pity?

Hamilton @ Calgary (Saturday, August 6) Battle of the second placers! But are either of these teams for real?

Good luck!

Nothing too funny this week. Montreal by 3. Unless you're a fan of New Zealand's contribution to world cuisine. Edmonton by 11. I used to think that poutine* was pretty weird. BC by 7. Until I heard about this. Calgary by 21.

*Poutine is available in Phnom Penh at one small establishment. And yes, I enjoyed it.

Montreal visits Toronto. The Argos play gracious hosts, but not too gracious. Montreal by 4.

Edmonton Eskimos won't do well on the Manitoba prairies. Winnipeg by 6.

Rough Riders enter the Lions' den. The kitties have their claws sharpened and will use them. BC by 8.

Our 15-year-old striped cat raises holy H*** whenever we put her into the car for a trip. That tells me that Tiger Cats do not travel well. Calgary wins by 2.
