Week 6 Picks

Week 6 and Hamilton still doesn’t have their new house.  Hate to say I told you so.  Actually I don’t, it’s one of my favourite sayings.  As I write this from an airport bar at an unknown location on my way to tonight’s Bombers v Cats tilt I am rudely reminded via email that is…

Week 5 Picks

Week 5 and things are starting to trend in the direction most people thought they would back in June. Calgary @ Edmonton: Thursday, July 24 (9:00pm EDT) Pick: Edmonton Calgary looked haggard and didn’t deserve to win last week.  I don’t care if “the experts” keep calling Calgary the best team in the CFL, they almost lost to…

Toronto – The Big Stroke

That new franchise smell wafting over from Ottawa is starting to fade away and people are realizing there’s a strong stench in the Canadian Football League.  One Redditor put it thus: I was a rabid Expos fan. I do hope you don’t have to live through what I did. Right now, you’re right before the “splitting games with San…

Week 4 Picks

The winners and losers are starting to show their true colours and someone is likely to loose their first game this week (unless there’s a tie tonight). Edmonton @ Winnipeg: Thursday, July 17 (8:30pm EDT) Pick: Winnipeg Winnipeg’s margin of victory has shrunk each of the past two weeks.  There’s only one battle that matters in this game —…

Week 3 Picks

Is is too early to see trends?  Maybe not after week 3 when everyone has at least 2 games in… Winnipeg @ Montreal: Friday, July 11 (7:00pm EDT) Pick: Winnipeg Winnipeg has won in Montreal their last three visits.  Their first two victories were a blowout and a come from behind but injury Santa has arrived early and is handing out…

Lies, Dirty Hits, Idiots and Apathy

At first I had no idea what to write about this week but it wasn’t long before a tsunami of rage exploded inside me like yesterday’s bad bean burrito.  Then the words poured forth from my fingers faster than the serve yourself beer taps inside the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge on Grey Cup weekend. Lies So Timmy’s field isn’t…

“It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone”

Bombers win? Holy shit!  The no-one-gave-them-a-chance Blue Bombers didn’t just win they dominated! They made Ricky Ray look like a choir boy Week 1 was awesome! Ok, no it wasn’t, two games were horrible but football was finally back on TV. The extra long weekend didn’t leave much time for blogging so it’s a quick hitter this week.…

Week 2 Picks

Week 2 is here already!  It seems like only last week that week 1 was here… Ottawa @ Winnipeg: Thursday, July 3 (8:30pm EDT) Pick: Winnipeg If you picked Winnipeg to win last week you’re a liar.  Although they are certainly favourites this week anything can happen in the CFL, including an expansion team winning its first ever…
