It seems like it was only yesterday that the Penn State mascot was arrested again for drunken debauchery and the Cincinnati Bearcat was getting a beatdown from the cops.
Preston North End’s mascot Deepdale Duck is in trouble again. This time he was sent off for harrassing Derby County keeper Steven Bywater during their New Year’s day match. Video of the offending duck here.
This incident wasn’t the first time Deepdale ran into trouble with opposing goalkeepers. Here’s video of him pissing off a Sunderland keeper to the point of catching a water bottle in the bill.
Apparently he also got in a BBC reporter’s face without his head during a broadcast during the Derby match.
Deepdale isn’t surly all the time. Here he is bonding with the public while wearing a sandwich board. Mmmmm samiches.
I don’t know what that duck’s on but I want some now. When was the last time you saw someone with a sandwich board who was that friendly? Most of them look like they’d stab you in the gut sooner than look at you.
