Making Ourselves Look Foolish '10 - Week 1

Ok time for another season of terrible CFL predictions and snarky comments... Until of course real life gets in the way and we disappear for a month or two.  On to the picks:

Montreal at Saskatchewan:

Over/under on the number of 13th man references made by tonight’s TV crew: 10.5. 

Over/under on the number of years spent in prison by Riders fans who attack the guy who will inevitably bring a “fear the 13th man” sign?  30.5.

Pick: Montreal

Toronto at Calgary

“... and so it was ordained that a citrus would lead them to victory.”  I think that was from The Odyssey.  Anyway, we’re now officially prepared for tonight’s Cleo Lemon start. The fridge is full of Mill Street Lemon Tea beer and if the team somehow finds itself behind we’ve got the “rally limoncello”. Hopefully things don’t get too rowdy and no one pulls an Ed Philion (while having a drink dive at the knees of the person next to you).

Pick: Toronto

Hamilton at Winnipeg

So apparently Troy Westwood is applying for Wipeout Canada, which if his audition tape is any indication, is a show about being squirted with a lot of water guns. While I applaud Little Hawk’s initiative, if we’re going to see a former Bomber fall flat on his face, isn’t the obvious candidate Mike Kelly?

Pick: Hamilton

BC at Edmonton

Casey Printers was 1-4 last year with the Lions?  Really?  That doesn’t seem right. 

While the Leos may not be favoured to top the standings this year, with the addition of Dane Randolph to veterans Korey Banks and Tad Crawford they have once again secured their spot as the CFL team with the most players that sound like 80s movie villains. Nice job.

Pick: Edmonton

Bonus Pick:

All of the Argos have been injured in practice, so they do the only logical thing: get Pinball to play the Stamps by himself.  Complicating matters is that the Stamps have fielded a team full of G-20 riot cops and protesters. How does Pinball do?

Boatmenblog Pick: In the first half, Pinball decides to take the end zone by force, deftly avoiding  thrown bricks and bouncing off of riot shields on his way to an early 70-0 lead. During half time, he goes to the Stamps locker room and in a speech for the ages brings together the protesters and police.  With his opponents spending much of the second half hugging, Pinball waltzes to a 352-0 victory.
