CFL Pick 'Em, Week 7: No more goose eggs as both Edmonton's winning streak and B.C.'s losing streak are broken. You'd think that would make this week's games harder to pick, but you'd probably be wrong. Make your picks inside.

Montreal looked like their old selves against Toronto. The Bombers hang in there against the Eskimoes and hand them a convincing defeat. B.C. puts it together at home for their first win of the season, while Calgary hangs tough against the Tiger-Cats.

What would life be without a couple of coin tosses here and there?


Edmonton @ Montreal (Thursday, August 11)
The classic rematch of pretty much every Grey Cup of the naughts. Montreal's trying to get back to first place, while Edmonton's trying not to lose it. Coin toss!

Calgary @ Saskatchewan (Friday, August 12)
Calgary is showing signs of figuring it out, but Saskatchewan sure ain't. Only a coin toss if you put a heavy emphasis on the Riders' home field advantage.

Toronto @ Hamilton (Friday, August 13)
Toronto has been reliving the nightmare of 2009 over the past few games. With Kevin Glenn enjoying a surprising career resurgence in Hamilton, this is probably not a coin toss.

Winnipeg @ B.C. (Saturday, August 6)
Buck Pierce returns to his old stomping grounds with a very good chance to add insult to injury. On reflection, I guess there really aren't too many coin tosses this week. My bad.

Good luck!

A friend of mine once asked me to look after her dog while she went on holidays. Edmonton by 5. The trouble was, my female dog was in season and so I had to keep them separated. My solution was to keep the female inside the house while my friend's dog stayed in the yard. Saskatchewan by 11. The first night, I was woken by yelping and screaming, and went downstairs to check. It seems that I had accidentally left one of the windows open, and now both dogs were knotted together and in quite obvious trouble. Toronto by 7. Even though it was late, I rang the vet, who sounded very grumpy when he picked up the phone. He advised me to hang up, put my phone outside near the dogs and then he would ring back, as the sound of the phone would immediately eliminate the sex drive of the dogs. BC by 13. "Are you sure that will work?" I asked. "Well it just did for me" he replied.

Eskimos go east to the Land of the Larks. While there they enjoy the big city, but do not enjoy the game. Alouettes by 3.

The Stampede thunders into Saskatchewan and does not have a rough ride. Calgary by 10.

Toronto visits Hamilton to see the Cats. Argonauts wind up as filler in the litter box, where the Tiger Cats do what kitties always do there. Hamilton by 6.

Blue Bombers go to the Lions' den. They will avoid becoming dinner for the hosts. Winnipeg by 9.
