When Football Mascots Observe The Minute’s Silences (Photos)

By Chris Wright

Here’s something that always tickles us, though we know it probably shouldn’t. What better way to pay your solemn respects to whom or whatever than by doing it from inside a giant foam-rubber fish costume?

Sometimes life, especially when at its most sombre, can be brilliantly absurd…

We ask you, is there a more fitting way to commemorate Armistice Day than by inviting a six-and-a-half-foot devil onto the pitch?

    I find that funnier than I should

  5. Zam says:

    Blackburn ones actually look sadder than the players.

  6. Steve-o says:

    We’re all allowed to grieve in our own way.

  7. Jarren says:

    Jesus, really?

    Wouldn’t it have been common sense to tell the mascots to head on down the tunnel before the ref blew?

  8. Tim says:

    Great article Chris, its the little things haha. love the Fleewtood one also!

  9. That Terry Lewis says:

    It’s Gunnersaurus for me :(

  10. LeopoldoZombie says:

    Old Albion mascots were much better…

    By the way, what is with that fashion of wearing those away kits…

    • DanW says:

      The mascots have to wear the away kits so the ref doesn’t confuse them with the players. Imagine if they wore the same kit as the players, it would be chaos.
