Then again this could be Burris and Vanstone if Calgary wins. (ITS A JOKE!!!!) Really, there's an image I wish I had never thought of. EWWW!! Moving on.
2-2 last week leaves me at 42-26 for the season. What happens to end things off. Well, here's what I'm thinkin.
EDMONTON AT B.C.
Two teams sitting at 8-9. One team will move on to the playoffs while the other is likely out. The only team Edmonton has beaten over the past six weeks is Toronto. The Lions have lost their last two games on the last play of the game. B.C is definitely the better team here and the fact they are at home should mean they advance. I will take the Lions.
MONTREAL AT TORONTO
Do I really need to waste words on this game. Montreal wins and wins handily.
CALGARY AT SASKATCHEWAN
I know you can't wait for this one and either can I. I expect this game to be like the other two between these teams and that is a nailbiter from start to finish. Weather should not be a factor so its just two good teams slugging it out against one another. Durant vs Burris, Cates vs Reynolds, Fantuz vs Lewis, the matchups go on and on and on. Expect a ring-a-ding-dong dandy and in the end, make plans to be at the Western final. The Riders win it...they win it late! I can't see them losing with such a rabid fan base cheering on their every move.
HAMILTON AT WINNIPEG
Despite winning last week over the Riders, I wasn't impressed with the play of Hamilton. The Bombers have been the better team over the past month, but again, I can't pick a team that has Michael Bishop at quarterback to win. He is too much of a wild-card. A good Bishop means Winnipeg likely wins while a bad Bishop basically guarantees a Hamilton win. Bishop won't be Western semi-final bad, but he'll be bad enough to give Hamilton the victory and home field for the Eastern semi.
