CFL player interrupts his halftime interview to talk smack with opponent
B.C. Lions linebacker Solomon Elimimian was about to give a halftime interview during his team's game against the Calgary Stampeders, when he suddenly had a more pressing need, talking trash to an opponent running off the field.
TSN reporter Jermain Franklin waits patiently for the jawing to subside, and when Elimimian is done berating the Stampeder, he politely turns his attention back to the interview, like a Canadian version of Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman.
Franklin keeps a straight face pretty well, but the real feat is not bursting out laughing as the linebacker finally begins their interview with a calm and casual, "What's up?"
Even the official CFL Twitter account couldn't ignore the hilarious, impromptu exchange.
