CFL's Stala kicks up greatest TD celebration ever

Posted on: August 6, 2010 10:10 am
The Canadian Football League, typically, isn't worth watching. No offense, neighbors to the North. It's only really worth checking out when there's some sort of insane highlight.

Or, say, some dude doing an homage to the World Cup in the end zone after scoring a touchdown. Fortunately, that's exactly what the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (seriously?) Dave Stala did last week when he scored on an 11-yard touchdown pass .

Just as some context, if you've ever played soccer, you know that the hardest things to pull off -- at least in terms of intermediate-->advanced skillz -- are the rainbow and the extended juggle.

These are hard to do, mind you, with a ROUND SOCCER BALL. Imagine trying to pull them off with an oblong football, for nearly 10 seconds, with the pressure of tens of thousands of Canadians glaring at you.

Someone in the NFL needs to get a hold of this and make sure that Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens see it before the season starts -- it'll force them to up their game and bring the touchdown celebration heat.

CFL's Stala kicks up greatest TD celebration ever

Go to hell CBS! no offence? The first game of the year finished 54-51, I'm not sure if your closed mind can count that but it is 105 points in one game! and making fun of their name? There are some awful names in the AFL and UFL I can guarantee. Oh and the Saskatchewan Roughriders last year were 3rd in revenue sales for all professional teams in the country with a fan base of barely a million people. Please don't bash our professional league that has been around longer than yours!

Too bad you had to take a great clip like this and use it to bash the CFL, and to make fun of a team that can trace it's history back 140 years.  Way to perpetuate the "ugly American" stereotype.

I was mostly joking -- anytime someone does moves like that in the end zone, you can all but guarantee that I'll take a humorous approach to it. But fair point.

Why is the game not worth watching?
Different but still football.  You sound like a true sports fan...good end zone dance.  AWESOME!  Obviously a connoisseur of the important things in athletics.

Maybe your true calling is judging/writing on Dancing with the Stars
