Remembering: The Decapitation of Cincinnati’s Mr. Redlegs
Last summer, Cincinnati Reds mascot Mr. Redlegs was riding around the outfield warning track, in between innings, on the back of some sort of motorized vehicle.
They picked up speed, he got cocky, and his big furry foot got caught. What ensued was pure awesomeness.
Look, I wish no extreme harm on any one person/thing from the Cincinnati Reds, simply because they play in the same division as the Cardinals. Besides, how could I maintain malice against an organization that once housed Chris Sabo’s RecSpecs? It’s nearly impossible.
Nevertheless, anytime a grown man wearing a mascot costume gets beheaded, we’re going to treat it as newsworthy – even if it’s 8 months later.
Sorry, those are the rules.
