Old Man Fight!

I’ve fallen and I cant get up, eh?

Forget Yanks-Red Sox. Apparently, the biggest sports rivalry in the world is between the BC Lions and Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League. During a luncheon in Vancouver two days before the Grey Cup, Joe Kapp and Angelo Mosca got into a fistfight after Kapp tried to give Mosca a flower. Apparently, these two have a decades-old dislike of each other from their days on the gridiron. Anytime you have two 70-something dudes fighting each other and a cane is involved, you know it’s going to be magic. The best part is the crowd reaction as it escalates from good-natured fun to a beat down. Stop laughing, folks! He just broke his hip. At least he has universal healthcare. The Lions ended up with the hardware, beating Winnipeg 34-23 behind the momentum of a first quarter rouge by Paul McCallum.
