Alert: Blue-hair fight!
When grizzled Canadian Football League rivals Joe Kapp and Angelo Mosca ran into each other Friday at an honorary, pre-Grey Cup luncheon, their longtime feud reignited in a bizarre scenario that would have made Bobby “The Brain” Heenan grin with evil delight.
Check the film: These 70-somethings can’t contain themselves, with a super-grumpy Mosca lashing at Kapp with a cane after the former Vikings and Patriots QB wagged a flower in his face. Kapp proceeds to drill Mosca with a devastating right hook.
Down goes Mosca.
Bad blood between the two has flowed for decades, dating to the 1963 Grey Cup. During that precious affair, Mosca — a Hamilton Tiger-Cats defensive lineman widely considered to be the meanest player of his time — injured a helpless Lions running back who was already down on the field, a moment Kapp obviously held onto.
Still, we’re a tad suspicious of this outrageous display: Mosca rolls around town known as “King Kong Mosca,” the former pro wrestler. The guy has been in roughly 4,000 fake fights. Was this one real?
Either way, nice work sending totally mixed signals to our nation’s youth, fellas.
