Hot Clicks posted the following video today of a CFL game in which a defensive player had a very scary collision with a goal post. Korey Banks, who was defending on the TD attempt, collided headfirst with the goal post in Saskatchewan. Luckily reports said he was ok after the incident.

Banks practically guaranteed himself a place in cinematic sports blooper immortality when he crashed into a padded goalpost Saturday afternoon while defending an end-zone pass from Saskatchewan Roughriders backup quarterback Ryan Dinwiddie to receiver Weston Dressler in the waning moments of a 42-5 Lions’ victory at Mosaic Stadium.
Though Banks eventually was able to leave the field under his own power, his teammates spent several anxious moments contemplating his fate as Banks lay prostrate on the turf. A number of Lions of religious bent knelt in prayer while Banks was being attended to by the B.C. medical staff – a reaction that, in fact, increased the anxiety level of the remaining spectators who imagined that Banks had been seriously injured.
