CFL Pick 'Em, Week Eight: It was the Week of No Surprises: Ricky Ray got injured, Hamilton lost, and argoal is still in first. Write your best Kevin Glenn joke and make your picks inside.

Copying and pasting from the last four years: Argos lose both the game and Ray to injury. Ottawa's snakebitten again, losing by 3 as time expires. Edmonton remains undefeated, which means Hamilton remains winless. Out west, Travis Lulay beats Kevin Glenn handily in the Battle of 2012.

A nice six-point week for Reever to move into a tie for second, only two points behind the leader.

[insert witty description of week here]


Edmonton @ Ottawa (Thursday, August 10)
Tough-luck Ottawa is 1-5 with five close losses. Hosting Edmonton isn't much of an opportunity to change course, either.

Toronto @ Montreal (Friday, August 11)
Eight weeks in and this is the first meeting for these storied rivals. Which is probably for the best, because neither of them have been lighting the world on fire.

Winnipeg @ Hamilton (Saturday, August 12)
Speaking of tough luck, Winnipeg is a respectable 4-2 but stuck in fourth place. Sure, Hamilton seems like an easy target, but this week they fired their defensive coordinator, which should really fire up their last-place-and-not-even-close... uh.... offence. (Okay, so their D is last place too, but it's at least a little close. Also, this is a really long game preview, but I really like talking about how bad Hamilton is.)

B.C. @ Saskatchewan (Saturday, August 13)
Out of all the Grey Cups I've seen in person, Kevin Glenn has started a full two-thirds of them.

Good luck!

Making picks while sad that the Wichita Lineman is no longer on the line.

Ottawa has dreams of an upset, Edmonton has visions of an easy win. Neither will happen, but Eskimos will prevail. Edmonton by 8

Had to stop in at halftime: 29-0? WTH, did someone give Kevin Glenn some youth juice before the game?
