Okay, so last nite’s game didn’t go quite as I envisioned it. After a slow, low-scoring start, the Lions got things going in the second half, but the Bombers offence didn’t come alive until it was too late. If anything, the final score flattered Winnipeg; this was a snooze-fest.
On the other hand, the CFL Alumni Luncheon provided its share of action and then some, as Joe Kapp and Angelo Mosca squared off for some grandpa-on-grandpa action. Check this shit out:
Ah, the beauty of old age. Your brain starts to go, along with your temper, as you relive the good old days–while still harbouring grudges from 48 fuckin’ years ago. Back in the 1963 Grey Cup, Mosca hit Lions running back Willie Fleming out-of-bounds, knocking him out of the game. Without their star RB, Kapp’s Lions fell to Mosca’s Ti-Cats, 21-10. So naturally, a half-century later, the ex-BC QB was looking to even the score.
After offering a flower in jest, Kapp is told to shove it up his ass. Instead, he shoves it in Mosca’s face, who takes a swing at him with his cane. Kapp then decks the ex-pro wrestler, who goes down like a sack of potatoes. If only Stampede Wrestling was still around, Stu Hart would have one heck of a main event!
The best part is after the dustup, when the two old guys get to cut a promo for their upcoming title match. Mosca rambles on about how he gets no respect, while Kapp tells a story about how Fleming named his dog Angelo, and kicked the shit out of it every day! Cuz y’know, it wouldn’t be a crazy old grandpa story without a dog getting kicked, would it?
The kicker? After the whole thing is over, they both take their seats at the same table. And they say wrestling is fake!?
