Hawk Flying Last Night For Atlanta…Literally!!!

Hawks Mascot Flys On Backboard during gameTotal Pro Sports – Last night during game 2 of the first round series between the Miami Heat and the Atlanta Hawks,  one hawk was flying early on.  It was a real live hawk, none other than the team mascot “Spirit”, present at home games on the arm of his trainer.

Just a few minutes into the game, the hawk took of and perched himself on the backboard, causing a minor delay.  Then it landed on the TNT camera, before interrupting the game a second time, resting again on the backboard.  The trainer was finally able call the bird back to his arm and take it off the court.

Its too bad for the Atlanta Hawk fans that the only player able to take off after that last night was Heat star Dwyane Wade.  The Miami guard put up 33 points (six 3-pointers), 7 assists, and 5 rebounds to lead his team to a 108-93 win and even the series up at 1-1.  Getting the split in Atlanta, the Heat will now go back home taking home-court advantage from the Hawks.  We don’t count on seeing anything fly around back in Miami.  Can someone explain how a “Heat” could fly.

Here’s the footage of the hawk incident from last nights game.
