Falco’s CFL Beat: a celebration for the ages– and a stern rebuke

08.05.10 7 years ago 37 Comments

I’ll bet you could’ve heard a pin drop in Mosaic Stadium when Stala pulled off that nifty footwork.

Welcome to this week’s installment of “Falco’s CFL Beat.” I’m your host, Falco. As you know, the sports world is a buzz over the celebration dance from Dave Stala. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats wide receiver punctuated his team’s 28-25 loss to Edmonton Eskimos with this dramatic touchdown followed by some soccer-style dribbling worthy of the great Pella.

This proves that the talent in the CFL is merely a half-step down from the NFL. More like a third of a step, really. I’d like to see Larry Fitz Gerald try to celebrate like that. This is exactly what I mean when I say, the CFL isn’t #2– it’s number 1A!

Unfortunately, I have to cut short my CFL wrap-up this week in order to shake a finger in the direction of Dead Spin. There’s no need for me to repeat the ribald hallucinations of a Gold Digging Harpy levied against my idol, Brett Farve. I’m sure you’ve read these lurid falsehoods on this site and others. If I could, I would erase every word, excuse me, EVERY LIE, from the face of Internet. How dare you, Dead Spin? How dare you, Mister A(rrogant) J(erk) Dalerio? How dare you besmirch the name of the greatest quarterback of all time?

Dead Spin takes the word of some roundheels chippie over the reputation of American’s Golden Boy. Did I wake up in the Taliban? I’m confident a stern denial from Brett is forthcoming. All anyone needs to hear is a simple denial from Brett. His word is his bond. But it’s a shame that he even has to acknowledge this filth. The only satisfaction I can take from this sorted affair is that Arrogant Jerk Dalerio is going to be out of a job once Will Leitch hears about this. SHAME!
