WitP: Chad Owens Goes Off

I'm gonna be away from the blog for a week (starting yesterday), but I had to come back to post some links regarding Chad Owens crazy performance yesterday -- 6 catches for 163 yards and 2 TDs to spark the Toronto Argonauts in a 37-22 victory over the Montreal Alouettes.
During the pre-season, the Montreal Alouettes wanted Chad Owens to take a pay cut. When he refused they shipped him to the Toronto Argonauts in exchange for a draft pick.

On Saturday night, Owens made the Alouettes pay for their decision. He caught six passes for 163 yards and two touchdowns as Toronto beat Montreal 37-22 in front of 22,311 fans at the Rogers Centre.

The victory moves Toronto into a tie with the defending Grey Cup champions for first place in the Canadian Football League's East Division.

Both teams have identical 5-2 records.

"It's nothing about trying to get back at them . . . I play for the Double Blue and that's it," said Owens. "I was just trying to do what I could tonight for this team and that's all that matters. It doesn't matter who's out there, it doesn't matter who we're playing."
Here's some video highlights from the game, courtesy of TSN. It includes Chad's TDs, his excessive celebration after the second one, and a post-game interview.

And here's a quote from Chad regarding the excessive celebration penalty he drew.
"I got penalized, I hurt the team for it but you're in the moment," he said. "It was a canoe and I was rowing it trying to get back to Hawaii.

"But we got stopped short. We hit some current, some big waves. But it was a fun night and we came away with the win. You can't ask for anything more."
