Corban Knight Facts

Our own Mr. BookofLoob has been warning folks on twitter that the excitement level surrounding new Flame Corban Knight seems to be a little out of step with how important the player actually is in the grand scheme of things. And fair enough.

But I bite my thumb an that entirely common sense advice. We Flames fans have had precious little to celebrate in over the last 20 few years, so any good news is great news given how parched we are for such sweet nectar.

So in direct opposition to BoL's advice, many folks (well...mostly myself) are now showering Knight with effusive, entirely unreasonable superlatives on twitter. I figured we might as well extend the exercise to the site.

 

 

Get in the spirit and share your Corban Knight facts in the comments.

Earth wasn't created by the big bang. It was created by Corban Knight eating too many burritos.

This one must be a joke, because it is impossible for Corban Knight to eat too many burritos.

The Late Dick Irving was hanging around in heaven when he saw a guy wearing ND colours skating around the clouds and miming face-off wins.

Irving turned to St. Peter, 'Who's that'?

St Peter, "That's just God, he thinks he's Corban Knight"

Totally unrelated comments here, but I have to comment. Rob Kerr is the biggest idiot in Media! I've been trying to listen to him on the fan 960 today and he tries so hard to sound professional it makes me sick! He talks like he has decades of experience and knowledge but quite frankly is embarrassing to listen to! Just aweful! He's a crappy commentator! This guy is an idiot! Please sportsnet, enough of his blabber!
