CFL Pick 'Em, Week 2: Blowouts on the field mean tight margins in the pool. Sharpen your pencils and make your picks inside.

It's western dominance in our first week back! Saskatchewan rides roughshod over the Ti-Cats, and B.C. takes care of business against the Bombers. Edmonton hangs on in Ricky Ray's return, and Calgary stamps all over the Alouettes.

A strong showing by some Pick 'Em veterans with four-point weeks, but everyone's still in the race. Please double-check your picks to make sure I got 'em right!

After all the pomp and ceremony of Week 1, Week 2 seems like your morning trip to Tim Horton's. Except with the risk that your apple fritter will dislocate your shoulder.


Winnipeg @ Montreal (Friday, July 6)
Both these teams are anxious to get back East and hit the reset button on a miserable first week. Buck Pierce has been practising and may very well play, at least until he gets knocked out again on his fourth snap.

Hamilton @ B.C. (Friday, July 6)
A tough home opener loss followed by the toughest road trip in the league have the spectre of an 0-2 start looming over Hamilton.

Calgary @ Toronto (Saturday, July 7)
Toronto didn't look terrible in their Week 1 loss, but they need to start converting some of their yardage into points. Calgary, on the other hand, had no problem doing so.

Edmonton @ Saskatchewan (Sunday, July 8)
This is a game which also will be played.

Good luck!

I discovered today that the former star quarterback from Central Michigan (my alma mater) plays for Hamilton. Hasn't yet appeared in a game, but perhaps that may change as the season goes on.

He was pretty mobile, but his arm left a lot to be desired.

Just back from vacation in the White Mountains in NH. Highlights of the trip were the New England Brewfest - craft breweries from the northeast showing off their wares with lots of samples available - and the Lincoln/North Woodstock Independence Day parade featuring the one and only Wolf Man from Clark's Trading Post. Thrills galore, including a terrific thunderstorm and downpour during the fireworks. All the fun has put me in the right frame of mind to venture my guesses.

Winnipeg at Montreal: Both were beaten pretty badly in their openers, so the question is one of recovery. Montreal is at home, so the nod will go to them. Allouettes by 7

Hamilton at BC: In a cat fight, size does indeed matter. Lions have that advantage over Tiger Cats, so my pick is BC by 14.

Calgary at Toronto: East is east and west is west, but in this case west will prevail. Calgary by 15.

Edmonton at Saskatchewan: Eskimos try to handle the Rough Riders, but they will fail. Sasketchewan by 13.

I see that AndiemGarcia left her week two picks in the week one link. Dr J, make sure you take a look for those.
