Since Dr. J. seems to be among the missing (hope nothing is amiss), I will join the parade. Picks, picks, picks. I feel like a 5-year-old with finger to nose. At least I don't have to eat the results, just a lot of crow as I fail.

Alouettes face the Lions, but cats just love to eat little birdies. BC by 16

Roughriders try to trample the Bombers. The automobile replaced the horse, and the automobile has been superseded largely by the airplane. So it will be here. Winnipeg by 8

Tigercats at Redblacks needs no comment. Poor kitties. Ottawa by 19

Stamps at (Team Name TBD) has one team trying to continue its excellence and the other trying to get back to winning ways. Momentum counts. Calgary by 14

Ottawa's cleaning up nicely and they sure cleaned the mat with the Als. Kevin Glenn continues his renaissance as the Riders poke holes in the Bombers' plans. Calgary's plans remain intact as they solidify their division lead, while Hamilton holds off a late Toronto surge to notch their first win of the season.

With our Labour Day hangover behind us, it's full speed ahead into the home stretch.


Montreal @ B.C. (Friday, September 8)
So this may seem like a cross-country match of bottom-dwellers, but Montreal could be playing for their playoff lives: if the season ended today, they'd lose out on the playoffs with a west crossover.

Saskatchewan @ Winnipeg (Saturday, September 9)
Saskatchewan climbed up out of last place, and has their eye on a divisional playoff spot. If they can sweep this home-and-home they're right in the conversation.

Hamilton @ Ottawa (Saturday, September 9)
Ottawa is good now! Hamilton is probably still bad.

Calgary @ Edmonton (Sunday, September 9)
Remember when Edmonton was a point out of first place? If they can't muster a better show against Calgary this week, that dream will be long gone.

Good luck!
