The biggest prize in Canadian football was handed out on Sunday, as the BC Lions were able to capture the 99th Grey Cup on home soil in Vancouver with a 34-23 win over the Winnipeg Blue bombers.

However, what's making bigger headlines internationally was a fight between two 73 year-old Canadian League legends prior to the game. Former rivals Joe Kapp and Angelo Mosca, proving that time doesn't heal all wounds as they become involved in an expletive-laced, cane-swinging fight.

Following a replay of a controversial play from the 1963 Grey Cup between Mosca's Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Kapp's B.C. Lions, Kapp approached fellow septuagenarian Mosca, with a rose as a sign he was ready to bury the hatchet.

However, Mosca refused the offer and a scuffle ensued with the former Tiger-Cats lineman using his cane to ward off Kapp, who responded by throwing a punch and throwing Mosca to the ground. After his playing career, Mosca became a professional wrestler but there is little chance this was staged, just some bad blood with a lengthy shelf-life.
