CFL Player Arland Bruce Celebrates Touchdown With Spiderman Mask
CFL, Dumbass

The Exchange Rate On CFL Touchdown Celebrations Is Not That Great

The Canadian Football League is a bit of an oddity. The field is like 120 yards long and I believe it's also 15 yards wider than an NFL field. And, if memory serves me correctly, there's a moat at mid-field.

Anyway, the CFL is also home to a number of NFL washouts, like Isaac Bruce's brother, Arland. And naturally, when you're in a league that literally no one cares about except Canadians, you might try and go that extra mile to get yourself noticed beyond just the Great White North.

And if that means doing a lame imitation of Chad Ocho Cinco or TO, so much the better.

Yep, in a recent CFL game, Arland Bruce decided that the best way to celebrate a touchdown would be to put on a Spider Man mask and prance around the end zone. Frankly, it would have been a lot better had it not taken him half-a-minute to get the damn mask on, but whatever.

Naturally, the CFL fined Bruce for his actions, but I hope he decides to try and do another super hero. I'm thinking the Invisible Man would be good.

well which championship trophy means more i know it's the VINCE LOMBARDI TROHY for the super bowl championship but it's a keeper trophy . In the CFL it's the GREY CUP which was given to the league by a British Lord to be played for every year, and here's the kicker the same trophy is given out every year not a keeper so the new champions can see who has won it in the past. beside Pringle and Allen and u name another US. College player to win the Grey Cup 

Warren Moon he won 5 in a row with the Eskimos. Ricky Ray, Jermaine Copeland, Danny McManus, Tracy Ham. That is what I have off the top of my head, and I know there are more.

Yes, I have watched. I was not here to disparage the CFL and I apologize if my attempt at comedy did not come through the way it was intended.

I am cognizant that the CFL uses yards, teams have only 3 downs, 12 men a side, motion toward the line of scrimmage and the defense must be a yard off the ball. Look, I do appreciate the CFL. It's football isn't?  Lastly, my university produced two of the greatest CFL'ers (Cal State Fullerton - Mike Pringle and Damon Allen) so I am not going to mock what little football tradition my university had since it stopped playing D 1 football in '92.

Nothing like taking a half an hour to act like an a**h*** - at least NFL players can do it in 3 seconds or less...
