This season I have been struggling to read my crystal ball properly, so I am now going with my gut and I should be able to do better. I mean, I can’t do much worse. Here is what my gut s telling me this week.
(ed’s note: I’m going to put my picks in as well to see who the real Nostradamus is!)
Division 2 (1-1 LW, 1-3 Overall)
D#Nasty vs OG Panthers (ed’s pick: OG Panthers)
The way that D#Nasty has started the season it will be difficult for OG to beat them. D#Nasty is playing great on both sides of the ball. This also happens to be a rematch of week 1 and I don’t think OG will get up big and blow it like the first week. Take OG to win and get revenge for a last second TD.
Outlaws vs OG Panthers NA (ed’s pick: Outlaws)
I hate to disappoint, but I don’t pick my team games.
Bitter Boys vs Centurions (ed’s pick: Bitter Boys)
I think Bitter Boys will have a harder time this week since Centurions have a better defense than the Haters and are a little more organized.
Outlaws vs Presidents Choice NA (ed’s pick: Outlaws)
I hate to disappoint, but I don’t pick my team games.
Dolphins vs Joey’s Haters (ed’s pick: Dolphins)
This was tough, but it’s a perfect game for the Dolphins to win as their strengths are the Haters weaknesses. Let’s go Fins.
Division 3 (4-2 LW, 6-4 Overall)
Les Tannantes vs Mustard Tigers (ed’s pick: Mustard Tigers)
I have a feeling that even with all the chemistry they have together that somehow Mustard Tigers let this one slip through their hands. I watched Les Tannantes play last week and they weren’t half bad.
Nice TDs vs Les Tannantes (ed’s pick: Tannantes)
I’m not sure why, but I just think the Nice TDs find a way to pull this one out. Les Tannantes are the better team and should be able to win, but after playing a tough game before I think they might be worn out.
Sriracha All Stars vs Old School (ed’s pick: Sriracha All Stars in the upset!)
Sriracha is a new team with a few new players and they really don’t match up well. I want to see Old School get beat in this division, but it won’t be this week by this team.
The Wieners vs Iron Wolves (ed’s pick: Iron Wolves, I do pick my team!)
Iron Wolves are the better team on paper and will also prove they are better on the field. Iron Wolves will have a plan in place to stop Francois and then it will be an easy win for them.
Sriracha All Stars vs Good Vibes (ed’s pick: Good Vibes in the upset!)
I think Sriracha pull this one off. I just wonder who will be throwing for Good Vibes. Will it be JC or Jeremy? They will need both guys to slow down Marvin and Jason, if not expect it to be a long day for Good Vibes who will be walking away in a bad mood.
Underdogs vs Les Fraises Sauvages (ed’s pick: Underdogs)
I really didn’t know who to go with in this game. I went back and looked over both team’s stats and came to the decision that Underdogs are the better team, but not by much.
Division 4 (5-0 LW, 7-2 Overall)
Les Beautes vs Airborne (ed’s pick: Airborne starts catching the ball !)
I played Les Beautes last week and they are a very solid team and should win this one easily. If Airborne want to have any chance, they need to catch the ball.
Flamboyant Flamingos vs Les Last Calls (ed’s pick: Les Last Calls)
They are the better team. I’m not saying they will walk all over Les Last Calls, but they will be able to do enough to win the game.
Thunder Buddies vs Sneaky Snakes (ed’s pick: Sneaky Snakes)
This will be the best match up in the division. We have last season’s champs vs the new team that has arrived and has been wreaking sh**ck along the way. I just feel that Sneaky Snakes will be able to pull it off, especially if Andrew is throwing for them.
Rawsauce vs 909 Unicorns (ed’s pick: 909 Unicorns)
I was going to give 909 Unicorns their first win of the season, but then I realized that they don’t play much defense and even with Rawsauce not being a good offense they have a way better defense and should be able to stop Eric from running. This will be a close game, but give me Rawsauce.
Les Beautes vs Les Last Calls (ed’s pick: Les Beautes)
Les Beautes are going to be exhausted by the time this game rolls around so I will give Les Last Calls the win. That is unless they start drinking after their first game.
Washington Foreskins vs Phoenix NA (ed’s pick: Phoenix)
I don’t pick my games, so don’t ask.
There you have it, my picks for week 3. I figure that someone will mess it up for me, but if I can get 75% of the games correct it’s a step in the right direction.
The last few days I have been looking at who should be on my list and who shouldn’t and these are the team that I came up with that have earned a spot on my list.
#3- Honor Game
#1- Old School
#2- Mustard Tigers
#3- Les Tannantes
#1- Sneaky Snakes
#2- Thunder Buddies
#3- Washington Foreskins
I’ve gone ahead and made a few minor changes to my list and I will bet you that after this next week I will be making a few more changes. There are a few teams that were on the cusp of making it, but got bumped because of the teams they played are a little weaker or they didn’t have convincing wins against certain teams that they should have easily won against. Look, these are my ranking and it is only week 2 things can change between now and the end of the season and if you keep winning then there is no chance that you won’t see your team up here sooner or later.
We have made it 2 weeks into the season and I hope that we will be able to finish it off. Montreal is into their (ed’s note: our, no?) second wave of Covid and if it gets bad like it did in March the city might shut everything down again. Last Saturday I went to watch Nick play football in Greenfield Park and the league has now made it mandatory to wear a mask it you are attending the game and they also won’t allow more than 250 people in to the stands.
I know that this is serious and we should consider ourselves lucky that we are playing outdoors as a lot of indoor facilities aren’t really open and if they are they have very strict guidelines to follow. I love playing football, but please be safe and should you have any symptoms please use your best judgement and figure out if it’s just a cold or not before come out. Everyone who does come out, let’s have some fun and be safe as we all have sh**fr*x to do the rest of the week.
(Ed’s note: Just a reminder that we are asking that only players come to the field for games until the city deems that things are safer again. So, please don’t bring friends or family to the games! And if you’re sick at all, please stay home!)
