I’m not sure if this is an isolated incident or a league wide phenomenon, but apparently mascot wagering exists in the NFL. Jaguars mascot Jaxson de Ville made a bet with the Seahawks mascot Blitz the Seahawk on the outcome of this past Sunday’s Jacksonville-Seattle game, with the loser having to dance in a thong. Not a great wager on Jaxson’s part seeing that going into the game Jacksonville was 20 point underdogs to Seattle, and after the Seahawks crushed the Jags 45-17, Jaxson made good on the bet, dancing in a thong like something from a furry bachelorette party.

While I’m all for supporting the team, methinks Jaxson may have a gambling problem if he was willing to bet on the Jaguars straight up against arguably the best team in the league. Maybe it’s time Jaxson checked himself into Gamblers Anonymous to get the help he so obviously needs.
