Team mascots go through a lot to entertain fans at games. The San Antonio Spurs’ Coyote literally lost his eyes after taking a charge in the stands.
The Spurs took on the Denver Nuggets at home on Wednesday (March 26), winning 108-103. With less than two minutes left in the game, the ball went out of bounds. Nuggets guard Aaron Brooks tried to save it but ended up tapping the ball towards the Coyote’s face.
Poor Coyote mutated momentarily before falling again and completely losing his eyes. We hope the kids inside the arena weren’t traumatized.
Then again, no mascot is creepier than the New Orleans Pelicans’ King Cake Baby.
