SportsFilter: The Sunday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

So it wasn't at Rebounderz or Airheads USA, but was instead at Boing Jump Center (which is exactly like the others but less purple and green).

I like how the Boing worker says "I don't want to mess with it" when asked to find cloth to stanch the bleeding.

He also sounds like he's had to call 911 before: "It's never taken this long."

For the uninitiated, Justin Trudeau is the son of the late legendary Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau.

The broadcasters from the video (Sun Media) are VERY conservative, and you can tell from the way they were slagging Justin before the fight.

To call Sun Media VERY conservative is an understatement, they make FauxNews look liberal at times.
