CFL Pick 'Em, Week Fifteen: Six weeks to go and rcade has an 8 point lead. Sure, that may seem insurmountable, but that's only a weekly difference of 1.333333333 points. Easy, right? Switch to fractions and make your picks inside.

Toronto's QB woes continue, as neither pivot can do much in a thorough loss to Ottawa. A couple of late field goals pushes Edmonton over the top. Despite a huge fourth quarter, Winnipeg can't complete the comeback, as Calgary boots a time-expiring field goal to win it. And holy cow! Saskatchewan wins AGAIN.

Tough week for points, but a big nod to argoal, who nails his second Saskatchewan win in as many weeks.

Six weeks left to play, meaning that it might just be time to pick some underdogs and go for the big points. Although if Saskatchewan keeps winning, who knows what will happen?


Edmonton @ Winnipeg (Friday, September 30)
I'm calling this the Leg Up Bowl: both these teams have a playoff spot, but Edmonton's looking to get out of the crossover, and Winnipeg's looking to grab a home playoff date. Whose leg is bigger? That I don't know.

Calgary @ Hamilton (Saturday, October 1)
Hamilton isn't a bad team, but they just lost a heartbreaker in Saskatchewan, and Calgary has won eleven games in a row. Smart money's on the streak.

Ottawa @ B.C. (Saturday, October 1)
Ottawa has a winning record (barely) and is in the division lead (barely), but if they want to be taken seriously as a contender, putting in a good show in Vancouver would be a good start.

Toronto @ Montreal (Sunday, October 2)
The rebuild is on in Montreal, while Toronto's still in the hunt. Toronto doesn't have many teams below them in the standings, but so far they've been able to handle the few who are.

Good luck!

I missed last week because of our annual vestry retreat where we plan the direction of the parish for the coming year. Thus, I was in beautiful Byfield, Massachusetts, while all ofyou were busily piling up the points. Perhaps the week off will sharpen my picking skills, and I will be able to have a better result this week.

Edmonton at Winnipeg: If this is the "Leg Up Bowl", then I will have to consider the lower limbs in my prediction. I have never seen a photograph of an Eskimo that shows off the legs. Bombers during WW II had Nose art that often featured scantily clad ladies with very shapely legs. I will go with the good looking ones. Winnipeg by 10

Calgary at Hamilton: Tiger Cats are just like my 3 felines; they are usually sleeping whenever you want them for something else. Stampeders are doing just that on their 11-game run. Cats better wake up or get trampled by the rampaging quadrupeds. Calgary by 12

Ottawa at BC: Red and black is not the "in" color scheme this year in fashionable Vancouver. Lions don't particularly care what color are the clothes they shred. BC by 9

Toronto at Montreal: Les Alouettes say "bienvenue au Montreal", but the Argonauts growl "stick it in your poutine, pal". Rather rude of the fellows from Toronto, and you can expect the game to go the same way. Toronto by 6
