Don’t you love seeing the mascot jump in the pile when athletes are celebrating a major win or title? They never get any love even though they hyped up the 11th man for the whole season. You’d think a team would throw the mascot some groupie scraps like the girl with a second head or missing several fingers and toes but nope. Mascots get nothing and like it.
All glory be to failblog.org. After watching this video, you’ll gain a better understanding of why athletes want nothing to do with mascots. No one wants to catch the suck. Maybe Shaun Livingston messed with Clippers mascot Brevin Knight and got the horns.
It would be wrong not to acknowledge Clutch’s attempt to salvage what little dignity a person in a mascot outfit can have left at the end.
The NHL wonders why it’s on Versus along with the first Invitational Robert Mugabe Ultimate Animal Fighting Memorial Tournament live from Harare. It’s partially because of stupid intros like this one courtesy of the Ottawa Senators. An guard of honor for a mascot? Really?
If we (well Canadia in this case) are going to go down that route, I demand to see a guard of honor for Mr. Met and the San Diego Chicken. It’s a different story if the Nationals had a drunk Ted Kennedy with a set of car keys and a bottle of jack for a mascot instead of that stupid Screech.
