Mascot Grand National: Best Idea Ever?
I don’t know how you feel about it but I’m still against putting a potential $700 billion towards a bailout of Wall Street. There are more pressing issues that need to be addressed such as primary education, Darfur and an American version of the Mascot Grand National.
The Mascot Grand National is a race in England that pits mascots against each other in a hurdle race at the Huntingdon Racecourse. The 2008 version took place this past Sunday. Hopefully some better video will be posted soon but this should do in the meantime.
Arsenal mascot Theo Walcott opened this year’s race. “The England international took time out of his training schedule to be pictured with Hugo The Hound, Gunnersaurus and Sedge The Field Mouse…” That’s about right.
I vote Yay for putting tax dollars towards mascot races and feats of strength.
