I’m sure all of CSTB’s gambling degenerates readers are already aware the Toronto Argos defeated the Hamilton Tiger Cats last night, 30-17. You might not, however, be aware that Argos WR Arland Bruce III found himself under CFL scrutiny with the above TD celebration that’s being called a tribute (?) to the late Michael Jackson. Is the moonwalk really that hard to do? From the Globe & Mail :
After scoring on a 21-yard pass from Kerry Joseph to put Toronto ahead 6-0, Bruce removed his helmet, shoulder pads and uniform top and laid down in the end zone. Bruce said he was simply honouring the memory of Michael Jackson by pretending to be buried.
Bruce received two objectionable conduct penalties.
œI made the mistake of telling him in camp that once he got to the end zone I didn’t care what he did, Toronto coach Bart Andrus said later. œBut he’s straight with it now and I think next time around he will celebrate in an appropriate manner.
