I was all set to pick the Eskimos, but their late near-collapse worried me, and then you combine with the fact John Avery will not be at 100 percent. The home field advantage will be helped even more by the fact the Als played their game indoors, and that was the original reason I was set to pick the Esks before the 2nd half yesterday. The late miss of a chip shot field goal by Fleming sealed my lack of confidence in them.
Montreal 36 Edmonton 30. Anthony Calvillo is named the game MVP, despite Lawrence Phillips having the better game.
Montreal's got the ground attack to play outdoors in Alberta in November, and I like their defence at least as much as Edmonton's. I also think that Calvillo is the best of a poor bunch of quarterbacks in the CFL this year.
The home field advantage is a wild-card though. It doesn't happen often, does it? I'm looking forward to the game, as always.
You put on your brave face and slip over the road, for a jar. Fixing your grin as you casually lean on the bar. Laughing too loud at the rest of the world, with the boys in the crowd. You can hide, hide, hide ... behind petrified eyes.

Wrestling has been rhyming with ass. I miss shows and it makes me all shades of ambivalence. WWE is starting to suck again. The crops? Jeezum Spice! Someone stole my crops. What in the ham fat is going on. That's just poo-doo! That's just my 2.4856 Yen.
Well, fans of 30 teams have to start thinking about the first big event of next year, the NFL draft. And because New England's pick is getting taken away, the winner of the Super Bowl has no impact on the draft order.
