With the score locked a 0-0 at the break, fans attending Derby’s home game against Blackburn yesterday were snapped out of their torpor by a truly surreal bout of half-time ‘entertainment’.
Indeed, it was at this point that a giant inflatable fish wearing a basketball vest came flailing out onto the pitch and proceeded to eat one of Derby’s goalkeeping coaches, only to barf him back up in a state of undress…
Yep. This is what it’s come to, people.
Apparently this “Mackerel Jordan” character is a staple feature of the NBA, swallowing unsuspecting folks left, right and centre as his reign of open-mawed terror continues unabated.
