Back at the beginning of September, it was Toronto Argos receiver Arland Bruce spending five minutes trying to dig a Spiderman mask out of his jock. Well today we've got an even better CFL TD celebration from our neighbors to the north. The Winnepeg Blue Bombers decide to break out into a game of Duck-Duck-Goose this past Friday! Via LBS and Meaningful Collateral....
The best thing that came out of this clip is that both the TSN announcer, and ESPN's Stan Verrett (when it was on Sports Center's Top 10), apparently have no idea what "Duck, Duck, Goose" is. Via Watchdog....
Stan Verrett, the official SportsCenter anchor of WatchDog Nation, admitted on the late show last night that he never had heard of the game "Duck, Duck, Goose" until Friday.Very very interesting, Neil. Thanks for sharing! Not knowing what a smore is makes sense because that's specific to certain areas, but I don't know how you could go through life without playing "DDG". I'm trying to think of something that I wasn't aware of until later in life, but I can't come up with anything. If you have an interesting one feel free to share it in the comments.
(Canadian Football Leaguers were playing it as part of an end zone celebration.)
Sure, that's shocking, but I admire Stan's honesty and was inspired to admit to my own tale of a childhood standard that I never had heard of until well into adulthood:
S'mores? Was unaware of their existence until Mrs. WatchDog introduced them to me in my mid-30s.
