Let the 2011 douchebaggery begin.
If you’re like most people, you don’t have a clue what the Boston Blazers are. I don’t know if it’s a statement of inference that lacrosse players like to “blaze” or if the franchise just needed some striking alliteration as part of the name. Either way, the contest on Saturday gave way to Frat house antics when the halftime show consisted of the Blazers mascot, Scorch, and three “scantily clad” women. The video speaks for itself.
It is beyond me–I mean seriously beyond me. What was the guy with the microphone thinking? I don’t know if he was just rocking as the emcee, or was the king douche behind the entire planning and poor execution. I’d love just a moment to swim in the cesspool of thought of the individuals who put this in play.
How egocentric do you have to be to know that there are kids in the crowd, and you push forward with such inappropriate absurdity. Just sheer baggery, I say. And what’s up with the women? Not one of them with a lick of sense to think, “Um, no, I’m not doing that.”
Of course the Boston Blaze organization apologized to the irate fans–especially the parents. If I were them, I’d grovel, too…considering it is professional lacrosse. Honestly, how many fans are you really expecting at a professional lacrosse event during the NFL playoffs? Probably not a good idea to bite the few hands that are willing to feed them.
