Mascot Charged with Disorderly Conduct During Game: During Saturday's game against Pittsburgh, Cincinnati's Bearcat mascot refused an order to stop throwing snowballs and pushed a security guard before being arrested and cited for disorderly conduct. Fortunately, a backup mascot was ready to replace M. Robert "Bobby" Garfield III.

Call me sick, but I love mascot violence.

So, in American football you have separate mascots for offence and defence?

Confessing my ignorance, I sort of thought we were the only country that's dufus enough to have mascots. Mascots are only cool when they biff or fight.

Not the only country - my niece supplements her income in the UK by doubling as a mascot for a League One team.

Which shall remain nameless, but as far as I know, she hasn't yet been in a fight.

Other countries more than make up for any dufus deficit when they get awarded the Olympics and have to come up with their own official mascot for the Games.

Best. Olympic. Mascot. Ever.

So good, there's now a statue of him outside the Olympic Stadium.

You can tell your team has depth when you can get the backup mascot on the field so quickly.
