    Can't We Just All Get Along?

    Those of you that read my "Buys And Sells" for the games know how much I hate clothed mascots. However, you have to love clothed mascots fighting. This YouTube video shows the Oregon Duck mascot and the Houston Cougar mascot duking it out. The University of Oregon Athletic Department announced that the Duck mascot will be suspended for this Saturday’s home game against Fresno State.

    The action comes after two incidents between the Duck and the University of Houston Cougar mascot in both the first and second halves of the game on September 1. In the first half of the Houston game, the Duck approached the Cougar mascot on the field and appeared to kick him in the side after he mimicked the Duck by doing pushups after Houston scored a touchdown. The Cougar then tackled the Duck as he went back to the sideline. In a scene that ended up on YouTube this week, the Duck can then be seen punching the Cougar for about 20 seconds. Funny.
