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.

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

Old men fighting is funny, but kind of pathetic.
