The Hornets Mascot is S-M-R-T...I mean S-M-A-R-T
For this next post I think I'm going to reenact the New Orleans Hornets meeting between the PR staff and the Marketing team.
Marketing guy(MG) 1 - "Alright this is the first time in history that a basketball team from New Orleans has made it to the second round of the playoffs. How can we make a big splash?"
Mascot Douche(MD) - "Umm I can dunk a basketball through a ring of fire."
MG 1 - "PERFECT!"
MG 2 - "That doesn't sound very safe and maybe something..."
MG 1 - "QUIET YOU!"
MD - "Yea Dude, what can possibly go wrong?"
"Trouble putting out a ring of fire used in a mascot stunt caused a 19-minute delay during Game 1 of the San Antonio Spurs and New Orleans Hornets second round playoff series Saturday night." USA Today
Mascot Douche (a day later) - "Oh."
