Vanderbilt Mascot Punches Fan, Gives Him Bloody Nose (Video)

Over the years, we have seen plenty of strange happenings when it comes to mascots.  There have been arrests for incidents involving snowball throwing, Bar-Mitzvahs, dance-offs, nut shots, and much more.  We’ve even seen a few scuffles involving mascots and fans, but I don’t remember any of them resulting in blood gushing from someone’s nose.  On Wednesday night, Mister C changed all that during a game between Vanderbilt and Tennessee.  Take a look at the Vanderbilt mascot fan punch video, courtesy of Barstool U:

If I was that kid I would have gone absolutely ape on the mascot.  There’s something about mascots in those big, bulky costumes that just makes you want to pummel them anyway, no?  That fan was presented with an opportunity.  If he beat the mascot down, no one would have blamed him.  Instead, he grabbed a newspaper and let him off the hook.  Unless, of course, he’s already plotting his attack for the next game.

    Have watched the video several times. Still looking for the punch. Saw the mascot swipe the fan’s nose, and it bled. Not intentional. Not a punch. Shoddy journalism. make it a lie and sell some hits. lookie advertisers- we use yellow journalism to get people to click on our stories. Now pay us big bucks.
    Advertisers should demand their ads be pulled from crap like this.
