Anyone Hiring A Tiny Acrobat?


We got an email about this… but the Celtics prefer to respond to "legitimate" outlets like the Globe.

Basketball sources confirmed to the Globe today that the Celtics have dismissed Damon Blust, the man who played mascot Lucky the Leprechaun.

The Globe is investigating the reason for Blust's departure.

    Wow. Lucky got shitcanned. Can’t wait for the back story on that one. Perhaps some inappropriate behavior with some of the dancers?

    hate to pour it on a guy during these times but Dano is right, on his first point.

  • Lakerhater

    Wow – you guys are harsh. So maybe Lucky likes to get trashed and slap the little lady around (how little would she have to be?) Looking like Scal’s mini-me probably drove hime to it. Danny should replace him with Nate Robinson.
    As for the other point, I too love tradition, but I’m afraid I love boobies even more. Don’t be hatin on boobies.

    I’m in DC for work this week and went to Monday’s Wizards game vs. the Suns. I had no idea the Wiz mascot was a guy dressed in a blue suit that is called “G-Man”. Worst mascot ever.
    Also being at that game reminded me of being at a Celtics game three years ago. At one point the Wizards were up by 6 and the Suns chipped away at the lead and were up by FOUR points early in the third and all the Wiz fans around me said “well, its over”. Took me back to all those years when we were AWFUL.
    They didn’t even have a HALFTIME show. Shameful.
    Heres to you lucky, I thought of you when “G-Man” was doing your patented trampoline antics between the 3rd and 4th qtrs.

    lucky was a horrible mascot…he wanted to be like like phoenix’s gorilla but in a stupid asss outfit instead of a kick ass gorilla suit.

    I am very saddened by the news. I hope very much he somehow comes back.
    I sure as heck don’t want to see some fool in a felt teletubbie suit.
    Lucky T-Shirts?

  • I’m bummed about this, too. While most of us like to point and laugh at everyone, Lucky really did fit in and fill niche that was needed around there. Anyone who sat through games just a couple of years ago when the team never won understands what I’m talking about.
    That being said, my sources say his ego is pretty big and he ticked off many behind the scenes. Can’t say I’m surprised with that. Ego can come back to bite you in your jumpy little ass.

  • The CEO

    I hired Damon Blust in 2002 for an acrobatic dunk tour and had to fire him. One, because he was an idiot. Two, he abused drugs and also had major anger issues which fell upon his girlfriend at the time.
    Karma is a bitch! Once an idiot always an idiot.
