Canadian Football League: You Had Me At “Beard”

There’s a football mistress in my life now, NFL. And, she has a beard.

In case you’re not familiar with the Canadian Football League (check out the stadiums), it’s a league where you can actually hit the QB and put your head down outside the tackle box.

The CFL season started this past weekend and I invested a serious amount of time into watching it, considering a conversion from the NFL.

Then, it happened – I noticed the beard of B.C. Lions place kicker Hugh O’Neill, pictured above.

And I knew I was home.

I’ve been a freelance journalist since 2000 and have had my work published via AskMen, Sports Illustrated, Bleacher Report, Busted Coverage, and Autotrader. I’ve done stand-up comedy. I'm a dad, youth soccer club President, and former team statistician for the oldest indoor football team in the world, the Omaha Beef. I own a design agency in Omaha, NE called lgx branding. I’ve married six couples in 10 years and my Marriage to Still Married ratio is 6:6. I always say, it isn’t so much about the “love,” as it is the tasteless jokes that became vows. I started the I-80 Sports Blog to have all the work I've published located in one place and to write about things I want to write about. I don't take anything too seriously and it is a real time saver.
