Even The Mascots In Rugby Will Kick Your Ass
We’re all very aware that, by far, the manliest sport that has ever been played is rugby. There are stories of rugby players continuing to play the game despite having their arms broken, internal organs pierced, spine shattered, neck broken, heart stopped, and are, according to any medical definition, completely deceased. There are stories of fans who have seen the disgusting, beat-up face of a rugby player after a match and have immediately turned vegetarian. Some folks tell a tale of a rugby player’s ears who have literally cauliflowered and become edible. The same gent went on to father thirty children by thirty different mothers, just by looking at their ovaries.
That’s the kind of sport rugby is.
In fact, one need look no further for proof of the manliness of the sport than by seeing what rugby mascots do when called on to perform. Take this bloke for instance, the mascot for the Manly Sea Eagles. Upon seeing an idiot fan jump the fence, he takes him out with a perfectly-executed tackle:
And yes, the video is that much better since the mascot gives the interview still wearing his sea eagle mask. So be warned, folks. You can streak on football and baseball fields, basketball courts, and even hockey rinks. But stay away from running onto a rugby field.
