Remember the scene in 'Mighty Ducks 2' where Gordon Bombay asks Averman if the team has been training in the offseason, and he replies by saying "you know, I knew we forgot something". I feel like a very similar conversation took place between the commissioner of the CFL and his head of staff when two half-naked fans took the field for what would be considered an eternity in the United States. Security? Ah shit, I knew we forgot something!
Some shirtless dude being knocked into orbit by a fed-up player isn't even the story here. The first streaker - that calmly walked off under his own volition - was wayyyy more eye opening to me.
Who knew you could basically just play in the CFL if you buy a ticket to the game and show up in full pads. Shit, you can come butt-ass naked and get a free tour of the field without fear of retaliation from law enforcement. They say you learn something new everyday, and today I Iearned that Canada treats their premiere football league the same way a bunch of neighborhood kids treat an oncoming car during a street hockey game. The world just stops for every overly impulsive, likely drunk fan that wants to make a spectacle of himself until one of the players - who are apparently in charge of their own safety - jumps into action. Last time I was in Toronto I was flipping through channels and came across a CFL game in which the score was 1-0. It was then that I realized I'll never understand Canada, and these videos just reinforce that belief.
