Argos’ Arland Bruce TD Celebration A Tribute To Michael Jackson


Total Pro Sports – Exactly one week ago, the world was in shock after word spread of the death of Michael Jackson.  Since then we have seen millions pay tribute to the fallen pop-star, but none as odd as Argos wideout Arland Bruce’s.

In the opening game of the CFL season last night between the Toronto Argos and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, Bruce took a 21-yard reception in for the TD.  Celebrations are commonplace in the CFL and Bruce stuck to such an agenda by paying tribute to MJ.  So how did he go about doing so?  By stripping off his shoulder-pads and jersey, and laying dead on the floor with his arms crossed.  Just one question.  How is that a tribute to Michael Jackson?

The CFL is currently reviewing the celebration.  Not surprisingly, Bruce was hit with two objectionable conduct penalties following the incident.  That call makes sense in so many ways.
