LOW­ELL ULL­RICH, VAN­COU­VER PROVINCE “I’m go­ing with Cal­gary. Tough to bet against Ricky Ray, but af­ter the West fi­nal, tougher to bet against Dave Dick­en­son.” DAVE NAY­LOR, TSN “Stamps win a close one. In an evenly matched game, I’m go­ing with the team that’s been more con­sis­tent over the course of the sea­son.” TERRY JONES, ED­MON­TON SUN “Fol­low the sto­ry­line. Ricky Ray traded from Ed­mon­ton to try get the Toronto Ar­gos in the Grey Cup and make the fran­chise rel­e­vant go­ing for­ward... Toronto 36 Cal­gary 30.” BRUCE ARTHUR, NA­TIONAL POST I keep go­ing back and forth in this game, but I sus­pect the game will go back and forth, too. Home- field and Ricky Ray make the dif­fer­ence, and the Ar­gos win by a field goal. PAUL WIECEK, WIN­NIPEG FREE PRESS “Swayze Wa­ters be­comes the Grey Cup hero with the coolest name ever, hit­ting from 50 as time runs out. Ar­gos 27- 25.” ROGER MIL­LIONS, SPORT­SNET “In a year that the Ar­gos are seem­ingly des­tined to win, I think Huf­nagel and the Stamps will win by a point.” STEVE MIL­TON, HAMIL­TON SPEC­TA­TOR “I think the Stamps may be more tal­ented, but there’s a cer­tain karma around the Ar­gos, as there was when they won in 2004. Ar­gos by three” DAVE ROWE, QR 77 SPORTS CAL­GARY “Don’t want to be a homer but it’s hard to bet against the Stamps given all the ad­ver­sity they’ve fought through just to get here.” DAVE CAMP­BELL, 630 CHED ED­MON­TON “Pick­ing the Arg­onauts: I don’t know if Kevin Glenn can string to­gether back- to- back solid out­ings. I know Ricky Ray can.” ROD PEDERSEN, ROUGHRID­ERS PLAY- BY- PLAY “Cal­gary will win by less than a touch­down and will spoil the party. Kevin Glenn will be a cham­pion at last.” CON GRI­WKOWSKY, ED­MON­TON SUN “Eski­mos. Ricky Ray can still play. Right, Mr. T?” JOHN MACKIN­NON, ED­MON­TON JOUR­NAL “Ar­rrr­gooooos! Ricky Ray shines in the Grey Cup, where he is 2- 1 life­time. He’ll sparkle again on Sun­day.” DOUG DIRKS, CBC CAL­GARY “Cornish is top Cana­dian. Owens is Most Out­stand­ing Player. Cornish wins tiebreaker on Sun­day” ARASH MADANI, SPORT­SNET Af­ter what Cal­gary’s un­her­alded de­fence did to Travis Lulay and the Lions, there’s no rea­son to be­lieve they can’t shut down the Ar­gos in the red zone ei­ther. Stamps, in a close one. MOR­LEY SCOTT, 630 CHED ED­MON­TON “Ricky Ray and the Ar­gos to win the Grey Cup. Its been a tough year for Eskimo fans, this won’t help.” ROB VANSTONE, REGINA LEADER- POST “Cal­gary 31, Toronto 16. Cal­gary’s tough­est ob­sta­cle was B. C. Grey Cup is a for­mal­ity.’’ IAN HAMIL­TON, REGINA LEAD­ER­POST “I’m pick­ing the Ar­gos. Ricky Ray again gets the bet­ter of his former Bat­tle of Al­berta foes.” CHRIS O’LEARY, ED­MON­TON JOUR­NAL “Ricky Ray has played too well and has too much mo­men­tum be­hind him to lose. His trade saga ends spec­tac­u­larly on Sun­day.” IAN BUSBY, CAL­GARY SUN Five years ago, Kevin Glenn missed his chance to taste glory. He savours it this time and is fo­cused and ready for the moment. MARK STEPHENS, STAM­PED­ERS PLAY- BY- PLAY “The Cal­gary Stam­ped­ers have caught the prover­bial wave and will win 27- 17 over a de­ter­mined Toronto team.” ED WILLES, VAN­COU­VER PROVINCE “Stamps by 10 on their coach­ing.”
