CFL Pick 'Em, Week 8: Pinch hitting for the good Doctor. Spock has a hernia, so he's been called away.

I don't have the fancy spreadsheets, so you'll just have to trust me when I say Howard T was the big mover with 6 points jumping into the top 5.

Point totals for last week:

Reever 3, apoch 3, owlhouse 3, wfrazerjr 5, rumple 2, DJE 2, argoal 2, bender 2, Howard_T 6, JPR 3, cixelsyd 3, YYM 2, tommytrump 2, and TBH 3.

Only two games this week, Saskatchewan at Toroton on August 18th and BC at Edmonton on August 19th.

Howard T was the big mover with 6 points

Call it the "blind squirrel and acorn" syndrome. If I had any idea about what I'm doing, I'd be a lock for the Costanza. Anyway, here comes my effort for this week.

Saskatchewan at Toronto shapes up to be a battle of the inept. If it were possible for both teams to lose a game, this would be the one. Since the Argonauts are at home, I will give them the edge. Toronto wins by a surprising 14.

Eskimos have lost their last 2, but are back in their own igloo. They are hungry! Instead of seal blubber, they will feast on Lion. Edmonton by 17.

Thanks for pinch hitting, apoch. Get well soon, Dr. J.

The Argos scare the shit out of me. Too bad they don't scare anyone else. Still, at home against a team that sucks as badly as they do ... Toronto by four.

Edmonton is 5-2, but only has a point differential of +19. In this one, though, differential makes no difference. Edmonton by 18.

I put this up and I missed the first game, how funny is that? (I couldn't figure out where Toroton was on the map.)

Reever has been away on vacation and emailed the picks into Dr J. Sorry for the late posting!

That was nice of SSK to get it close last night. Jim Barker looked like he pooped his pants on that last offensive possession before the kneeldowns.

Thanks for pinch-hitting apoch!

FYI I was just updating my spreadsheet and noticed a couple of extra points in there. I believe these are the correct lastweek/total points for these people:

wfrazerjr - 6/28
Howard_T - 7/23
owlhouse - 0/20
TBH - 4/10
