Making Ourselves Look Foolish '08: Week 6

Hamilton at Montreal


We’ll admit it. We’re big fans of Richie Williams. (not big enough to be in his fan club, but close). Although it’s possible that we just have a thing for backup Ticats QBs – hell at one point I wrote a preview praising Kevin Eakin – Richie has always appeared to have to tools to excel at this level and it’ll be interesting to see how he does.

Further along the Cats backfield, Ken Peters had a post up the other day where he made an interesting case for Jesse Lumsden to bolt to Edmonton after this season. One to add to Ken’s list: between his time at Mac and as a Ticats, Jesse has probably already gone through all of the eligible women in Hamilton.

Pick: Montreal

BC at Edmonton

I’m guessing it’s because of the Nissan ad where they’ve dubbed Wally’s voice with a honking horn but at this point every time I see Buono talking on the sideline I imagine him sounding like the teacher from Charlie Brown. What does this mean for the game? Well, how many games did Charlie Brown’s team win?

Ah who am I kidding? Charlie Brown would still beat Maciocia.

Pick: BC

Winnipeg at Toronto

At this point it has become abundantly clear that Adriano Belli is determined to get a 15 yard penalty that leads to an opponent’s score in every game. So at this point, the only thing left to do is to lay down some money on how he figures out how to commit objectionable conduct this week. My guess, he takes a hot dog from a fan and throws it at the side judge. After all, he’s just really intense and besides, he was only trying to give away free meat. (As an aside, we do really like the Wiser ads with Belli being shown at the Argodome).

Pick: Toronto

Saskatchewan at Calgary

Why are there no child labour advocates picketing Riders’ games? Ignore the bio, there’s no way that Stu Foord is older than 15.

Pick: Calgary

Bonus Pick:
All of the Argos have been injured in practice leaving Pinball to play the Bombers by himself. Adding to the challenge is that the dastardly Bombers have been allowed to use actual planes during the game. How does Pinball do?

Boatmenblog Pick: While the game is a defensive struggle in the first half – on account of Pinball not letting the Bombers land in the end zone – Pinball gets annoyed with the pace and destroys the planes using a combination of charisma and brute force. Then, of course, it’s all Pinball, all the time. Pinball 147 Bombers In Actual Bombers 0.
