Jazz Mascot Fights Cavs Fan (Video)

So much for mascots being a bunch of soft, kind, lovable creatures.  Suddenly they seem to be taking on the role of super badass, whether they are being treated to a few lap dances, or trading punches with fans of the opposition.

The Utah Jazz mascot, “Bear”, took part in the latter Friday night when his team hosted the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Energy Solutions Arena.  During a break in the action, Bear took a sign that read “I’m A Loser”, and placed it behind a Cavs fan.  Moments later, words were exchanged and an altercation between the two spilled onto the court, where the furry mascot sent his opponent to the ground with a stiff check before security broke things up and escorted the embarrassed Cavs fan off the court.

And in case you were wondering, it was all fake, but still quite entertaining.
