NFL Nation: Angelo Mosco

On Peyton Manning's Joe Kapp reference

September, 6, 2013
As you have probably heard, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning tied an NFL record by throwing seven touchdown passes in a 49-27 victory over the Baltimore Ravens. The last quarterback to do that was Joe Kapp for the Minnesota Vikings in 1969, a fact that elicited a cool reference from Manning that bears further inspection on this fine Friday morning.

Asked about Kapp, Manning told reporters: "Great Canadian quarterback out of Cal. Kicked the crap out of a guy on YouTube a couple of years ago, too."

Yes, at the age of 73, Kapp fought former CFL adversary Angelo Mosco on the stage of a CFL alumni event two years ago. Their 48-year grudge dated back to the 1963 Grey Cup, as noted in this blog post.

What is it like to see two 73-year-olds fight? Check out the video to see. I particularly enjoyed the accompanying soundtrack.
