Nuggets Mascot Obliterates, then Taunts Youth Football Player (Video)

nuggets mascot destroys youth football player

There’s a very slim chance you will ever find yourself on a football field with Denver Nuggets mascot Rocky the Mountain Lion. But if you do, watch your back. Rocky does not mess around.

On Thursday, some youth football players took part in what was supposed to be a friendly little exhibition game against a team of local sports mascots during halftime of the Denver Broncos’ final preseason. However, one kid found out the hard way that the exhibition wasn’t so friendly. And by “the hard way” I mean Rockey absolutely destroyed the kid with a late hit after he’d stepped out of bounds, then stood there and taunted him as he got up and walked away.

Take a look:

This is not the first time we’ve seen the vicious side of a furry, otherwise friendly mascot. Back in December, Blue the Indianapolis Colts mascot totally humiliated a bunch of kids at the Vikings’ “Mascot Challenge.”

Of course, it’s all fun and games until some poor kids tears his ACL. Then we’ll all feel like jerks for enjoying this so much.
