Tight games all around: Montreal edges Hamilton by a safety. B.C. hangs on over Winnipeg by a field goal. Calgary gets it done by a touchdown. Only Edmonton wins by two scores with a nine-point win in Toronto.

Here we are at the Labour Day Classic once again! Get out your coveralls and put down your hammers.


B.C. @ Montreal (Friday, August 31)
It only took ten weeks, but we finally have a tilt between division leaders which looks like the real deal. Montreal puts their 3-game winning streak up against B.C.'s 4-gamer.

Winnipeg @ Saskatchewan (Sunday, September 2)
Annnnd we have a true battle of the basement. Saskatchewan's free fall continues with five straight losses. Are even the Blue Bombers licking their chops?

Toronto @ Hamilton (Monday, September 3)
The mushy middle gets to fight it out in the last LDC from old Ivor Wynne. Sentiment will carry the day, which is good because these two offences sure won't.

Edmonton @ Calgary (Monday, September 3)
These two teams are also playing.

Good luck!

Wife and I will be climbing Pack Monadnock Mountain in NH tomorrow to help count migrating raptors. Reports are that a few species, not necessarily raptors, are heading south a bit early. That tells me to get the snow blower serviced soon. For now I'll stick with blowing CFL predictions out the usual orifice.

BC at Montreal: No little larks expected on the mountain tomorrow, so it sounds like they'll stay home and play. Some have said that lions (the mountain lion type) have been seen in NH. This is a persistent but unconfirmed rumor, so I expect they'll be in Montreal, not here. Does this help me predict the result? Of course not; Montreal wins by 2.

Winnipeg at Saskatchewan: Rough Riders have shown less than stellar performance all season, while Blue Bombers haven't been too good either. Winnipeg seems to have gotten a little better as the season continues, but not had great results. This will be another tight one, but Sasketchewan will prevail by 3.

Toronto at Hamilton: The Argonauts take their Golden Fleece along the lake shore to play with the kitties. The Tigercats do the fleecing and the Argonauts boat gets sunk. Hamilton by 7.

Edmonton at Calgary: Eskimos go to a Stampede, but I've never heard of a sled dog stampeding, even when the Alpo is passed out. Both of htese teams have seen success this season, but Edmonton seems to be a bit stronger. Since the game is in Calgary, it'll be closer than had it been in Edmonton, but I will call Edmonton by 11.
