If you taped the game on TV, fast forward to check this part out. While I’m no fan of nut shots as a general policy, I must confess to being amused by the following:
Argo DL Jonathan Brown got DQ’ed after an altercation with some Ticat players. He was so steamed that he initially refused to leave the field. Pinball came over to convince him to leave. This wouldn’t be anything special, except that Brown had previously been miked for “CBC Sounds of the Game,? and the following conversation could be heard as plain as day on national television:
Jonathan Brown - “He hit me in my nuts!!?
Michael Clemons - Johnny!! Johnny, come ‘ere!! Hey Johnny!!
J.B. - “He hit me in my nuts!!?
M.C. - Johnny! Johnny! Johnny! Johnny!
J.B. - (turning to face the coach): Whaaaat!! (the way you’d say “Whaaaaat!!? to your mother if she was nagging you about personal grooming or something)
M.C. - “Johnny, you let the whole team down, man.?
J.B. - “But coach, he hit me in my nuts!!?
M.C. - Johnny! Johnny! Come back here!! Sssshhhh!!
…at this point, Clemons leaned over and whispered something to Brown, no doubt along the lines of “all of Canada can hear you referencing your nuts,? whereupon Brown finally sauntered off the field.
I guess a win would’ve been better, but seeing as it’s the first game of the year, I can settle for irate yet comical argos screaming about their abused groins.
