Atlanta’s Hawk Tries to Steal the Spotlight

Hawks Mascot BasketballI hate attention hogs; for instance, the Atlanta Hawks real-life mascot Spirit, normally the hawk that flies down from the rafters during the pre-game and then his duties are done. But before game 2 against the Miami Heat, Spirit decided he wanted to hang around, scope out the babes, maybe eat a rabbit…

With 8:28 left in the first, Spirit sat on top of the scoreboard, then flew around a little bit before coming to a rest on top of the Hawks’ basket, refusing to budge. Proving their mettle, the players all refused to take the court until the big bad bird left the basket. Ultimately, Spirit’s handler was able to coax him off the hoop and out of the arena, to big cheers from the crowd and some of the players.

Dwyane Wade, with moderate assistance from his teammates then led the Heat to a victory.
