Mookie's men were too much

The Edmonton Eskimos are definitely a loose bunch heading into a critical game with the Calgary Stampeders this weekend.

In fact, the locker room was full of playful trash talking yesterday after Mookie Mitchell walked in with a championship belt and a huge championship ring that he used as props while bragging about the Miami Heat winning the NBA championship over Dallas.

"When my team was losing 2-0 everybody counted us out," said Mitchell, who was born and raised in Miami. "All these Texas fans - Ed (Hervey), (Jason) Tucker - (were saying): 'Ah, they're going to get swept. The Miami Heat are front-runners. 'Hey, the front-runners took it into (Dallas's) house. Now they're taking the (NBA championship) back to South Beach."

Mitchell then strutted around the dressing room with the championship wrestling belt over his shoulder. It prompted Hervey to blurt: "Where's the chair so we can bash him from behind from the top of the ropes."
