The New Orleans Pelicans officially debuted their new name with a loss on Wednesday night, faltering in the second half against a tough Indiana Pacers team. Being that it was the start of the regular season, the Pelicans also unveiled their new mascot.
His name is Pierre, and he may give your children nightmares. Pierre looks like a combination between Big Bird and a circus clown. It’s not a good combination. Maybe he’ll grow on the fans.
If people were cracking jokes about the Pelicans’ team name when it was announced, I can only imagine what they will say about Pierre.
