Winnipeg takes advantages of Ottawa's backups and nails down third place with a win. A bunch of players you've never heard of play each other in Hamilton, and Montreal ends up winning. Edmonton finishes strong with 41 points against the Argos, and B.C. scores 41 of their own to take down the Riders.

rcade finishes strong with a five-point week, and a thirteen-point gap between him and second place. He becomes only the second SpoFite to crack 80 points in the Pick 'Em. Congrats, rcade!

At the other end, bender fought off numerous challenges to claim the Costanza with four points to spare. Congrats to bender!

Congrats, rcade!!! I proudly remove my crown from last year and hand it to you (I guess I proved last year was a fluke with my horrible performance/lol)

Thanks! I will use this to establish my credentials to emigrate, should it become necessary.

Go RedBlacks!

A Canadian wins the American football pick-em, and an American wins the Canadian football pick-em.

What a truly wondrous international place.

Congrats, Rogers!

The Alouettes are looking for a new General Manager...

And I have the dubious distinction of reigning continental football Costanza! I assume I am the first person to hold both "titles" at the same time.

jags, you and rcade are the only members of the 80-point club. No flukes there.

Of course, we were picking 9 fewer games from 2007-2013 due to a variable number of teams in Ottawa. But still!

Congrats to rcade on the positive prognostication! Or was it merely good guesswork? Either way, well done sir.

I feel pretty good about my T3, considering I failed to make picks on two separate occasions.

And thanks, Dr. J, for again kindling my interest in football north of the border!
