CFL Pick 'Em, Week Two: Four games down, six hundred and thirty-two to go. Polish your flipping coin and make your picks inside.

Starting the season earlier has its downside (winter isn't quite done in Winnipeg) but despite multiple delays, Edmonton finishes strong to knock off the Bombers. Saskatchewan holds off a late surge to send the Argos packing. Calgary finishes strong in their home opener, and so do the Lions.

It's week two, which means that nobody has been eliminated from playoff contention yet. Check back next week.


Saskatchewan @ Ottawa (Thursday, June 21)
Saskatchewan is coming off a strong first week, while it seems like Ottawa's barely even played a down yet.

Winnipeg @ Montreal (Friday, June 22)
If you're starting a rock band this summer, I regret to inform you that the name "The Drew Willy Reunion" is already taken.

Hamilton @ Edmonton (Friday, June 22)
I've been running this pick 'em for fourteen years and I've never once referred to HAM-EDM games as the Two-Ton Matchup. Why? Cite specific sources.

Calgary @ Toronto (Saturday, June 23)
When placing bets, be aggressive on the length of the pre-game 2017 Grey Cup highlight reel montages.

Good luck!

Wow!!! I'm off to a really good start this season. As an old friend used to say, "Things are always darkest just before they turn completely black." So I remain optimistic.

Speaking of black, the RedBlacks go into action tonight. Things will not be black, the red will prevail, and it will be Ottawa by 6

Les petite oiseaux let me down last week. I will give them another chance. Montreal by 12

Will there be tons of fun for kitty cats in Alberta? Nope. Edmonton by 14

Toronto team name could be shortened from Argonauts to the Nots. Calgary by 7
