Real-life mascots can be really problematic as they have untimely needs on occasion and have no reservations when it comes to fulfilling them.
Such was the case ahead of a high school football game in Arizona that had to be pushed back because of a filled bladder.
Several sports teams have real animals as their mascots. Yale University is believed to be the first such team, having made a bulldog called “Handsome Dan” their guy in 1892. Since then, sports fans have seen plenty of animals march or fly out before games.
It’s been proven that it’s not always the best idea, however.
The folks who went to watch a high school game between ALA Queen Creek and Saguaro in Arizona were put through a delay as the Queen Creek mascot, a horse named “Patriot”, urinated on the center of the field after being brought out for the national anthem.
A young kid with a plastic shovel had to take care of the mess, making two trips to and from before everything was sorted and the game could begin.
Saguaro ended up winning 39-35.
