Regina Saskatchewan — The son of a Saskatchewan Roughrider fan was feeling the heat this past weekend as the 2021 NFL season kicked off. Not realizing his father, a superfan of the CFL was in the room, he blurted out that he was excited for some real football.
“What did you just say?” his father sneered at him.
“Just that I’m excited for some rea…” before he could finish he was smacked upside the head.
“Oh real football huh, how about I give you one smack for every down there is in your precious NFL. You’ll be praying for three-down football! Little sissy fields are more exciting are they?”
While profusely apologizing, the son explained that he misspoke and that he didn’t mean it. He began trash-talking the Winnipeg Blue bombers which riled his dad up even more but he started directing his anger towards the pillow on the couch instead of his head. Although his father does watch the NFL, he spends the entire game talking about how the CFL has a superior product.
As they watched the Packers game that evening, the son mentioned that Green Bay almost sucks more than the Calgary Stampeders to really get back on his dad’s good side. From now on, the son will only think about how much better the NFL is but will be careful not to say it out loud.
