CFL Pick 'Em, Week Eight: Sometimes you pick the games, and sometimes the games pick you. Find a good hiding spot and make your picks inside.

Montreal apparently is spending too much time trying to explain their new branding and not enough time scoring points. Toronto has the same old logo but didn't do much better. Ottawa comes out on top in a defensive ground battle, and Calgary keeps rolling along.

tahoe and tommy are still neck-and-neck, but tahoe gets the extra spread point in the Ottawa win to get the edge.

Another long weekend and not even a Sunday game. Although given these match-ups, I can't blame the league for wanting to get this week over with quickly.

WEEK 8

Ottawa @ Toronto (Thursday, August 2)
Toronto FINALLY gets to play a divisional game. Will it help?

Saskatchewan @ Edmonton (Thursday, August 2)
Saskatchewan is sort of bad and Edmonton is sort of good. Nothing like a hearty Battle of the Middle on a steamy August evening.

Hamilton @ Montreal (Friday, August 3)
This space intentionally left blank.

B.C. @ Calgary (Saturday, August 4)
Calgary is 6-0 and this is probably not the week that their streak ends. Probably.

Good luck!

Last season: cruising with the front pack.
This season: trailing well behind the peloton.

How has our boy johndd110 escaped the banhammer to date?! Also, dumbfuck forgot to attach his spam link to the latest post. At least be good at it.

More importantly, regression to the mean is a bitch.

I don't know how he was missed. I was on the road but I packed the banhammer.
