This promotion poster looks rather innocent at first, doesn’t it? Let alone the enticing value presented by the 4-4-4 deal, how could one not be drawn in by the inescapable psychological comfort something called “Mascot Night” induces? Well, that’s how they get you.
As you’ll see (after the jump), there’s something quite ominous about this year’s ACC Women’s Basketball Tournament…
As if having to watch their team play the Nets wasn’t punishment enough, fans that actually stuck around for Toronto’s February 3rd half-time show were treated to another horrific display: The Raptors’ mascot devouring (and escaping to an undisclosed location with) one of the team’s cheerleaders.
Disgraceful, indeed, but if you’re like me, you have an uncanny level of fascination, and thus allow for a rather large margin of error, with all things mascot.
As a hypothetical: The San Diego Chicken, as opposed to, say, Tony Gwynn, drowning Bernese Mountain Dog puppies makes the act slightly less morally reprehensible, doesn’t it? Crazy, but true.
With that in mind, until further evidence comes to light, I’m assuming that the cheerleader simply had it coming.
