There Were Two Streakers At The CFL Kickoff, And One Probably Woke Up A Little Sore This Morning
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.
