CFL Pick 'Em, Final Standings: In a perfect ending to this wild and wacky season, we look atop the standings and find ourselves with a tie. But not the one you were expecting!

Toronto digs deep and gets the win, but it's all for naught as Hamilton cruises to victory over Montreal, securing the division title for the Ti-Cats and eliminating the Argos. Out west, B.C. comes up short in a must-win against Calgary, relegating them to crossover status. And in one final bid to generate typos in the 2014 regular season, Saskatchewan wins.

Well, how 'bout this: argoal hangs onto first, but cixelsyd notches a solid five points to join him, and becomes the Pick 'Em's first repeat winner to boot! How appropriate that in this, the weirdest season of seasons, we conclude with a tie. Congratulations argoal and cixelsyd!

In Constanza land, bender opened the season with a perfect 0-for-12 and never looked back, spending a solid 13 weeks in last place. A well-earned Costanza for the hardest-working nickel in the land. Congratulations, bender!

Thanks to everyone for playing along, and for being a part of one of SportsFilter's most hallowed summer traditions. We here at CFL Pick 'Em Headquarters just couldn't do it without ya.

And of course, stay tuned for the playoff pick 'em!

Ah well, I missed the podium, but a somewhat respectable 4th place is OK by me. The real winner here is Dr. John for running this once again. It's always fun, even when you have absolutely no idea what you are doing.

Good times indeed! Before next season starts, I'll have to see if I can find a Canadian coin, which certainly would give me a healthy advantage.

How'd that happen?

Thanks again Dr.J.

Hey, I won, yee ha! Well, congrats to cixelsyd for strong finish & making it a dead heat.

Congrats to JPR for hanging in there, but this race just shy of the win.

To Dr J, I thank him for his dedication in hosting a fun/successful pool, & humorous posting rants. Good luck in your pending fatherhood.
