Watch CFL linebacker seamlessly switch from trash-talk to on-air interview

BY foxsports • September 30, 2014

It can't be easy to flip the switch from trash-talking mode to interview mode, but one player in the Canadian Football League is an absolute pro at this.

BC Lions linebacker Solomon Elimimian (what, you haven't heard of him?) was busy engaging in a war of words with Calgary Stampeders cornerback Fred Bennett just before he was set to give a halftime interview.

Elimimian's smack talk was captured on camera, but more impressive than his way with words was how he flawlessly transitioned into giving an interview with a casual "What's up?" that he directed at the reporter.

The linebacker's trash-talk wasn't enough for the Lions, though, as they fell to the Stampeders 14-7. Tough loss -- we think.
