Well, I’m back and ready to get another worst person in sports out. This episode doesn’t even involve an athlete or a coach or even an owner. There’s no front office propaganda or anything like that. No crimes were committed, but a MASCOT tore his Achilles.
Yup, you read that right.
The Toronto Raptors’ mascot tore his Achilles tendon during a performance for a school in Halifax.
The main problem with this is that now Toronto doesn’t have a mascot. For some reason, every article I’ve read about this “injury” classifies the Raptors as a team with playoff aspirations.
Let’s take a more in-depth look at this accusation. I feel a little weird writing about basketball during football season, considering that of the big four professional sports in the US, basketball is at the bottom of my list.
Other than Rudy Gay and Kyle Lowry, there’s not a whole lot of talent on their predicted starting five.
Quite honestly, I don’t even remotely care about the state of the Toronto Raptors, or basketball at all right now. It’s football season.
I just think it’s a little bit strange how a MASCOT is getting national recognition when his team plays in Canada.
That’s just two things that don’t register with me.
