CFL Pick 'Em, Week Thirteen: The Riders have a shot at first place, the Argos have a shot at a win, and the Lions have a shot at some excellent restaurants and a rich craft beer scene. Grab your banjos and make your picks inside.

A very productive Labour Day weekend: the Riders win a tight one over Winnipeg, Hamilton completes the comeback over Toronto, and Calgary keeps Edmonton out of the end zone.

Thanks as well to Reever for managing the post last week!

Breaking a run of slates with heavy favourites, there are a couple of compelling coin tosses this week.


B.C. @ Montreal (Friday, September 6)
B.C. hasn't been as bad as their record shows. But man, that record is terrible.

Toronto @ Ottawa (Saturday, September 7)
As bad as the Argos have been, they've been competitive in their last couple of games - and a reeling Ottawa team may be their best chance to notch a second win.

Saskatchewan @ Winnipeg (Saturday, September 7)
The Banjo Bowl is the legit game of the week. If Saskatchewan wins, they take over first place in the West. If Winnipeg wins, they're cruisin'.

Calgary @ Edmonton (Saturday, September 7)
Is it too early to call this the Crossover Bowl? (Probably.)

Good luck!

We're packing for our upcoming trip to the Land of the Rouge, a couple of weeks to PE Island and Nova Scotia, where we try to see which ancestors were hanged as horse thieves. My ancestors on my Dad's side came to Canada at a very interesting time in 18th century Canadian history. Too bad it has no effect on my CFL picking efforts.
