Fight of the Day: 73-Year-Old Former CFL Players Throw Down at Alumni Luncheon

(Video courtesy of YouTube/blackknight101066)

You would assume that a much-heated football rivalry from nearly 50 years ago would have fizzled by now, but apparently old habits die hard.

During a luncheon Friday for the Canadian Football League alumni in Vancouver, BC, former BC Lions’ quarterback Joe Kapp and former Hamilton Tiger-Cats’ defensive tackle Angelo Mosca proved that there was no love lost between them when the 73 year olds came to blows on the dais.

Kapp offered Mosca an olive branch in the form of a flower, and the ornery former pro-wrestler told the former Minnesota Vikings QB, who went on to coach at Cal State and manage the Lions, to “Shove it up [his] ass.” When Kapp persisted and shoved the stalk in his face before smacking him on the chest with it, Mosca slammed his cane into the side of his head to repay the gesture. Kapp replied with a trio of punches to Mosca’s head, which dropped his opponent, before officials stepped in and called a stop to the bout at :43 of the opening round,  giving Kapp the win by TKO, referee stoppage.

Imagine being a member of either guy’s family in attendance at the luncheon that day and the horror of seeing your father or grandfather brawling with another Depends-wearing geriatric patient. I get embarrassed when my grandpa wears plaid pants. I can’t fathom how humiliating 9or possibly awesome) that would be.

We picture a Dan Severn-Tank Abbott reunion looking a lot like this in 20 years.

No word yet on whether or not Mosca’s hip made it through the fall.

did anybody click on that link above to the 70 year old mma fighter that got in the cage and beat the fuck out of a used car salesman in the cage. Strung together 3 submission attempts in round two before he got him to tap.

OMS: Old Man Strength.

Classic striker vs grappler match-up. The guy with the cane obviously wanted to take it to the ground.
