CFL Pick 'Em, Week Eleven: Bet on it: Montreal's gonna shock everyone and win the whole thing. Grab your reasonable cost of living and make your picks inside.

The favourites carry the day: Winnipeg coasts over B.C., Edmonton stomps Toronto, and Hamilton stifles Ottawa. The exception is Montreal, who ties the game with regulation time expiring, then outguns the Stamps in OT to shock the Calgary faithful.

tommytrump keeps pace with the pack, but things get interesting at the bottom, with seven players within four points of last place.

Eleven weeks to go!


Winnipeg @ Edmonton (Friday, August 23)
Two weeks ago, Calgary had a chance to dethrone the Bombers, and couldn't do it. Can Edmonton?

Ottawa @ Saskatchewan (Saturday, August 24)
Saskatchewan has won four straight to rise from the West basement, and will be fresh off a bye. Ottawa... uh, demoted their offensive coordinator.

Hamilton @ B.C. (Saturday, August 24)
The Ti-Cats are on a roll of their own and should be favourites going into this game. But: B.C. played them pretty tough two weeks ago, and Vancouver is never an easy place to play (football).

Montreal @ Toronto (Sunday, August 25)
At a Jays-Expos game in 2001, I saw Vlad Guerrero Sr get thrown out at third base trying to stretch a double into a triple. This game will probably be somewhat less exciting.

Good luck!

Halifax/Moncton Argos ... hmmm.

Perhaps the East Coast is where that golden fleece lies.

The East is ... not good. The Schooners will feast!

I find myself in a bit of a dilemma. I'm excited to be in a close contest for position, but then I realize that it's for last place. It's something, anyway.

Bombers must be using some of the aircraft self-protection equipment that I used to work on for them to stay aloft. Have the far north aboriginals developed new antiaircraft weapons? Edmonton by 11

Often those who are close to the seat of political power become softened by the atmosphere in which they exist. Can a trip to the hinterlands help the RedBlacks regain their former abilities? Saskatchewan by 9

Once again two cats struggle for supremacy, but this time it's in the Lions' litter box. BC by 6

Can there be such a thing as the Afterthought Bowl? Toronto by 3
