Fulham — that's the Premier League team with all the Americans, including the studly Clint Dempsey — experienced a bit of a black eye on Sunday when mascot Billy the Badger was sent off for excessive on-field low-quality breakdancing. And I really like the gravity that the Brits treat this with. I wish spokespeople standing outside courthouses issued statements for American mascots more frequently. Maybe then I'd get an apology from the Phillie Phanatic. Maybe some women like that long tongue of his, but where I come from you gotta buy me a drink first.
