Making Ourselves Look Foolish '10 - Week 2

Toronto at Winnipeg:

Wow did Buck Pierce ever play well against the Cats last week.  It was almost enough to make me wish that the Argos had taken the plunge on him. Of course he’s bound to get injured again, so that becomes our new task: figure out how Buck will get injured this year. 

My pick? A trip downtown goes horribly awry when a gust of wind at Portage and Main gives him a concussion.

Pick: Toronto

Calgary at Hamilton:

I know that Buck Pierce can run a little bit, but the Cats are going to need to come up with a strategy to stop the QB from running the ball. Otherwise, Henry Burris might get all the way to Burlington before the Ti-Cats do.

Pick: Hamilton

Saskatchewan at BC

I don’t think I can say it any better, so I’m just going to paraphrase something a friend in Saskatoon sent to me this week.

New rule for the Riders huddle this week: Take a 12-pack of Pil out to the huddle on every play. If all of them have been passed out and you’re still in the huddle, get the hell out!

Pick: Saskatchewan

Montreal at Edmonton

Jeers to the Alouettes for removing all of the interesting information about its players from its website.  Most teams when you click on the “personal” section of a player’s bio have a paragraph or so of information... Crucial information when you “write” a blog that attempts to bring some humour to the game. 

Please think of the bloggers Als webmaster. Or at the very least, write something in Adrian McPherson’s bio indicating that he possibly made more money from being hit by a golf cart being driven by a guy in a raccoon costume than he will from playing football.

Pick: Montreal

Bonus Pick:

All of the Argos have been injured in practice, so they do the only logical thing: get Pinball to play the Bombers by himself.  Complicating matters is that the Bombers have successfully petitioned the league to force Pinball to play the game while in a La-Z-Boy. How does Pinball do?

Boatmenblog Pick: This is certainly one of Pinball’s greatest challenges yet and he has some trouble early getting stopped on his first possession giving up a first quarter FG. After he discovers that he can use the recliner to launch himself through the air and that the chair swivels (allowing him to gain tough yards on the few second and short plays that are needed) it’s all over.  As if there was any doubt.

Pinball 276  Bombers 4
