Old-man throwdown is high (low) point of Grey Cup

The following video isn’t NFL-related, but it is pro football related. And hell, it’s just kind of (pick your adjective) … awesome, sad, scary, completely rewatchable … that it needed to be posted as soon as possible.

Below is what happened at a Canadian Football League legends luncheon last Friday, two days before the Grey Cup. According to Yahoo Sports’ CFL writer Andrew Bucholtz, it features a fight between 73-year-olds, former Hamilton Tigers-Cats defensive tackle Angelo Mosca and former B.C. Lions quarterback Joe Kapp. The two have a bad history together going all the way back to 1963 when, in the Grey Cup, Mosca knocked out B.C. running back Willie Fleming with a controversial hit.

Hamilton won that game 21-10, and apparently, Mosca and Kapp* never got over their differences. If you watch the video below (which features some NSFW language), you can see that clearly, as Kapp goes to hand Mosca flowers, Mosca responds by saying, “Stick it up your ass,” Kapp hits him in the shoulder with a microphone, Mosca takes a swing at him with his cane, and Kapp responds with a straight right to Mosca’s face.

*Kapp also played four years in the NFL with the Vikings and Patriots, including leading Minnesota to a Super Bowl IV loss against the Chiefs.

No matter the adjective you use, it’s freakin’ crazy.

Mosca's an ass, and I'm happy that Joe Kapp administered the beatdown on him. I can't believe you tell someone whose giving you flowers to shove them up their ass, over something that happened like 50 years ago. Whats pathetic is that he has a weapon AND a significant size advantaged, and he still got tossed like salad

That was freaking great! I especially like the part where despite Joe bringing him flowers and getting told to shove them up his ass, the lady in the crowd then tells JOE to let it go! I had no idea my wife was at this presser!

     Mosca was a crappy WWF wrestler and is even more pathetic here.  Too bad  Joe Kapp didn't get a chance to shove his cane down his throat.  I was a Kapp fan back in the day and also remember seeing him in the original (and much better version) of "The Longeswt Yard."

I liked the Vikes ol' number 11.  He was a tough SOB on the field knocking over would be tacklers and defenders with grace and  aplomb.  SI crowned him "The Toughest Chicano".  This video shows he still doesn't take any guff from anyone.  The man still can move as seen by the way he avoids the swing of the cane.  He looks like he is still in pretty good shape.  At least he didn't unzip his pants in front of Mosca to show his displeasure.  Joe threw some of the ugliest passes in league history, but he was colorful and he won games.   It is really too bad the National Football League no longer has characters like Joe.  Coach Kapp's greatest accomplishment has to be the kickoff return play he drew up in John Elway's Stanford finale in 1982.  Without the trombone player, the play would have failed.   "Win one for the Zipper!"  Cal 25, Stanford 20.

It's good to hear from you Joe!

Mosca's Hit on Willie Fleming

We all hated the Ti-Cats as they were a rough bunch of dudes.
Angie was a character, and reveled in his reputation for cheap hits.
Kapp was a tough nosed SOB. But to see them tussling at their
age was 1/ laughable or 2/ disgusting.
This was in the glory days of the CFL when there were fierce
rivalries.
Angie might get a call to do some promo for the WWE.
