Choosing to go in a different direction than the wanton killing of first responders, the AHL's Adirondack Flames have decided to smother the short, eventful life of would-be mascot Scorch.
Via Puck Daddy, this is Scorch. He's the newly revealed mascot of the AHL's Adirondack Flames. He was probably purchased a local Halloween superstore. But his shoddy construction and uninspiring photoshoot locations are probably the least problematic thing about him.
Boston Blazers President and GM Doug Reffue announced — in a letter to "the Blazers community" on the team website — that the three-year-old National Lacrosse League franchise was temporarily closing up shop. They're looking "both locally and nationally" for a new home for the 2013 season.
People are calling this affair at the Boston Blazers home opener last night "the most distasteful halftime show ever." Wait until they see the Black Eyed Peas in Dallas.
