CFL Pick 'Em, Week Two: It is with a heavy heart that I announce the sad news: there were no ties last week. Cheer up though, there's always next week. Make your picks inside.

Entertainment across the board! Hamilton hangs on against Saskatchewan to win their home opener; Montreal has a big fourth quarter but it's not enough to beat Edmonton; Ottawa's fourth quarter, on the other hand, does the trick; and Winnipeg's big second half gets the job done against the Lions.

tommytrump nails the Winnipeg win, while rcade takes the 4/4 approach, and each grab a share of first place out of the gate.

Too early to look at playoff seeding? Never!

WEEK 2

Saskatchewan @ Ottawa (Thursday, June 20)
These two played each other in Week 2 of last year as well, which saves a lot of wear and tear on my keyboard.

B.C. @ Edmonton (Friday, June 21)
Last year's battle of the basement led to B.C. edging Edmonton in the crossover battle. Edmonton spent the winter plotting their revenge, and they've come up with... Trevor Harris?

Hamilton @ Toronto (Saturday, June 22)
These two teams have a lot of questions to answer. For Hamilton: can they finally get that East division title? For Toronto: who exactly is on the roster this year? At least a home opener bobblehead giveaway is a good way to find out.

Good luck!

Normality strikes early, and I find myself tied with Reever for the Costanza position. I should have expected more? Ah well, onward to glory or shame.

The Checkerboards should not allow Riders to attain king status. Ottawa by 9

Lions had their tails twisted last week, while the sub-arctic aboriginals had easy sledding. Look for more of the same. Edmonton by 14

Cats from the medium-size city on the lake swim to the big city on the lake. I'm probably all wet on this, but Hamilton by 13

Heh, nobody had Hamilton by 50 (64-14 F).

The Ti-Cats didn't bother to kick the P.A.T. on their final TD.
