Don’t mind Bo Levi Mitchell’s sideline drip.

Mitchell was dripping hard while watching Calgary beat Saskatchewan in Week 4.

The Stampeders franchise quarterback looked like an NBA player rolling in and out of the arena in a fresh game fit as the reigning CFL MOP watched his squad put it on the Riders. Riderville faithful were letting Mitchell have it for rocking sunglasses after dark, but there was a reason.

“Oh, for sure. Daytime or nighttime. I had like four or five texts after the game: “Really dude sunglasses at night?” I was like yeah, I get it, but the game started in daytime and I already had a vibe going and we were playing well, so I wasn’t going to change that up,” Mitchell said on his Sportsnet 960 show in Calgary.

Kick-off was just after 5 p.m. local time in Regina and the sun didn’t set until it was past nine o’clock.

“It’s not looking cool. I was going to wear my headband, I wasn’t going to wear a coaches hat, I was going to wear my headband out there like I always do. And then in warmups the sun was starting to beam on us, so I was like I’m going to wear my sunglasses out there,” Mitchell said.

“And we started playing well and I was like – it was night time – I’m not going to take them off now. I’m just going to ride it out and it worked.”

The mans got style – don’t hate just appreciate.
