I usually have a great time going to T.D. Banknorth Garden for a C's game. Unfortunately our mascot is a bit of a buzz kill. The current version of Lucky is a baby-faced, sickly pale, stick figure, fruitcake who prances around doing cartwheels and walking on stilts everywhere. Really Celtics? That's the best you can do? What happened to that cool guy in the huge Lucky costume who'd mosey around the old Garden giving the occasional high five?
Don't get me wrong I enjoy mascots, i.e. the Philly Phanatic, Bernie Brewer, the Phoenix Guerilla, Youppi, Mr. Met, the San Diego Chicken… all are entertaining and kinda cool. We have a male cheerleader/gymnast who is uncomfortably happy all the time. Waaaay too enthusiastic. Tone it down guy. For God's sake, the previous Lucky (Damon Blust) had to be let go because he got too cocky. He stopped showing up at special events and didn't see eye to eye with management. LOL!
Come on Wyc, wake up here! Send this guy to Disney on Ice or to Barnum and Baileys. Every time he jumps off the trampoline and dunks it I keep hoping that one of these times he's gonna snap his neck. If your going to keep him, at least put a giant mask over his sickly dome. Mascot with mask always beats mascot without a mask. No one ever wants to see who's inside the costume. There's no way that Red would approve of "Lucky the Leaping Tool". I can just see him rolling over in his grave now.
