It can’t be easy to flip the switch from trash-talking mode to interview mode, but one player in the Canadian Football League is an absolute pro at this.
BC Lions linebacker Solomon Elimimian (what, you haven’t heard of him?) was busyÂ engaging in a war of words withÂ Calgary Stampeders cornerback Fred Bennett just beforeÂ he was set to give a halftime interview. Elimimian’s smack talk was captured on camera, but more impressive than his way with words was how he flawlessly transitioned into giving an interview with a casual “What’s up?” that he directed at the reporter.
The linebacker’s trash talk wasn’t enough for the Lions, though, as they fell to the Stampeders 14-7.Â Tough loss — we think.
