Making Ourselves Look Foolish '08: Week 3

Hamilton’s winning in Toronto… Edmonton is winning at all… MartyYork successfully called the Cito coming back thing… Start stocking up on canned food.

Calgary At Montreal

We here at boatmenblog are obviously known for two things, one of which is asking all of the tough questions. With that in mind… how the hell did Nik Lewis manage to participate in that bobsled touchdown celebration a few years back when he clearly doesn’t have a neck?

Pick: Montreal

Toronto at Edmonton

I’m a little surprised that we haven’t seen a number of articles on Prefontaine and Younger this week. Maybe they’re being saved for Thursday. It would admittedly be nice to have Younger back this week, if only because Wayne Shaw is not a suitable replacement for Willie Middlebrooks.

Also, good job by Adriano Belli getting kicked out of the game in the third quarter last week. The season hasn’t officially started until he’s done something stupid. Game on.

Pick: Toronto

BC at Winnipeg

No snaky comments here. Bob Ackles had a tremendous influence on the CFL and we are honoured to have been even tangentially associated with him through the football series run by the Post. Hopefully, he’ll be smiling and watching this one.

Pick: BC

Saskatchewan at Hamilton

I was admittedly a little stunned to see TJ Acree traded to the Riders but at least this means that I can continue to make vague references to the time he was shocked outside of a sushi restaurant in Vancouver. In any case, with the injury to DJ Flick this makes a lot of sense from the Riders perspective. What doesn’t make a lot of sense is that when I heard that Darien Durant was starting at QB for the Riders this week I was excited because it meant that we could run this photo of him getting Romero Miller’s leftovers again.

Pick: Hamilton (I can’t believe it either)

Bonus Pick:

All of the Argos have been injured in practice, leaving Pinball to play the Eskimos himself. But first decides to make a quick stop by the Calgary Stampede. How does Pinball do?

Boatmenblog Pick: Pinball starts the day by heroically downing 132 pancakes and then cooking up enough to feed the Greater Calgary Area for 6 months. During the rodeo, he proceeds to ride a champion bull for over 20 minutes and then for show bucks the bull off of him. Oh, and he beats the Eskimos 418-13.

* Everything we need to know about football analysis, we learned from early ‘90s SNL sketches.
