That's One Way To Get Ejected

Thursday, January 29, 2009

What is it with mascots these days? When they're not getting DUIs, they're getting ejected from College Basketball games. Last night's Tulane-Rice game featured such an occurrence and you won't believe why the Rice Owl got send to the showers. He head-butted a referee. Seriously.

Here is the video from CBS Sports with Carter Blackburn and Pete Gillen on the call....

Now you don't see that everyday, now do you? Mascots have certainly done worse to officials over the years, but that was pretty blatant. Those Owl mascots are fiesty ones!

That ref did not give a hoot.

The best part was that CBS put the graphic up there.

Sammy the Owl is certainly no Zinedine Zidane, that's for sure.

That's great.

"Certainly," I always thought Pete Gillen was destined for a more high profile job on TV (maybe on College GameDay or the spot Tom Brennan is currently in).

That salute put it over the top for me.

Just hysterical.
