It’s The Oregon Ducks Clown Lineup
The Oregon Ducks football team has been getting themselves in quite a bit of hot water lately, easily asserting themselves as the baddest team off the gridiron in America (sorry Cincinnati Bengals, but your reign atop of this list is long gone). With several players having become familiar with real police lineups, one creative artist at the Oregon campus decided to turn those frowns into….Clown frowns?
Of the players currently on the team, the portrait, which is displayed on a billboard in Eugene, includes quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, running back LaMichael James, linebacker Kiko Alonso, and kicker Rob Beard, all of whom have pleaded guilty to various misdemeanors over the past year. Also included are former teammates, Garrett Embry, Jamere Holland, and Matt Simms, who were previously dismissed from the team, and LeGarrette Blount, who after his famous punching of Boise State players and fans, will be looking to land himself a spot on an NFL club this off-season.
The mural depicts each player as a clown, some with tears falling from their eyes, others with crazy colored hair.
So why the clown theme? Because it seems as though that is exactly what these Ducks are. It also appears as though the joke is now on them.
