Mighty Red Amazes Liverpool Fans Awaiting A ‘Special Guest’

The velour-coated bird is sure to be a hit at Anfield. Already he’s wowing the kids.

The Liverpool FC website reports on the sensation when Mighty Red arrived at an Anfield do for 50 junior Liverpool fans. The money quote is provided by six-year-old Daniel from Wavertree, who is either on-message or displaying a neat line in sarcasm:

    That’s one scary mascot if it can smile at dead people.

    I just figured out a big part of why he’s so freaky… a beak AND teeth… Imagine if you will a world with seagulls flying around your chips, gnashing their chompers at you. Or a mighty eagle coming down from the skies to lift your beloved pet dog Rover away with his sizeable incisors. Terrifying.

    Like I said in my previous post, he’d be ok if Liverpool gave him wings. Red Bull anyone? LOL
