“It feels really, really odd. It feels like things are crawling on my legs, to tell you the truth,” he said after putting on army-print pants immediately following the game.

His wife Darla Matthew was happy with the Grey Cup’s result.

“Now he doesn’t have to wear [shorts],” she said. “And this was the most amazing experience.”

Chris said he actually likes wearing shorts.

“After this is all said and done, I can put [pants] on if I have to go to a place now, but other than that, I’m going back to the shorts,” he said. “I quite like it.”
