There is no safe place for a mascot on a football field and even when the game isn’t going on, the mascot still has to watch his back for things or people who could turn his day into a bad one.
Last weekend, A Canadian Football League mascot for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers named “Buzz” was doing a dance number with his larger counterpart named “Boomer” when something terrible happened. Out of nowhere, a fan from the other side of the stadium decided to interrupt the mascot dance party by tackling “Buzz” in the back and sending him into a tailspin.
Probably the best part of the entire video comes from the commentary of the lady who is shooting it since she sounds legitimately horrified at the fan’s decision to tackle the mascot:
By the way, I decided to take a gander at the Winnipeg Blue Bombers mascot page for Buzz and Boomer and this is what I found in terms of their personality description:
Buzz, with his dark sunglasses and “Rebel Without A Cause” attitude, is quite the ladies’ man. Boomer, the taller of the two, is the strong and silent type who relies on cool sophistication, rugged good looks and playboy charm to make his mark among fans.
Clearly, that fan was jealous of Buzz’s “Rebel Without A Cause” attitude.
