    Eskimo DL on his way to a 7:00 a.m player appearance nails a robber.

    "Why you out here tryin' to rob old women?"

    Great interview.

    "He just seen my Eskimo shirt..."

    I'm also curious about Kitwana's definition of "old women".

    Is it the the Seinfeld "Marble Rye" lady or you know, a woman in her 40's?

    That's what I wondered JR.

    The other favorite line of mine is "It was mad early in the morning so I was upset, for real."

    Sorry to report that his girl friend from Kingston arrived on Saturday so yeah, he was probably still in bed. :)

    Listened to him on the radio tell his story this afternoon. He said the other bystander tried to tackle him, but the guy just ran right through his arms before Kitwana Jones got him.

    Now the practical part of me is wondering if this thief could help their running game, considering in just this one run he broke more tackles than any Eskimos running back has this season.

    This guy seems like a really cool dude.

    Good for him!
     
  11. Good for him, and for the other older guy who didn't just stand there and watch, rather he tried to tackle the guy as well. F-it, I'm goin to Canada.

    First, Shaq plays sheriff, now this.

    Guess if that whole superstar thing doesn't work out, you can always go into law enforcement.
