Jaxson DeVille barraged with paintballs because he’s the Jaguars mascot (vid)


Jaxson DeVille, the official mascot of the Jacksonville Jaguars, has been making bets with the mascot of the teams the Jags are facing each week. Clearly, Jaxson is a glutton for punishment because, well, the Jaguars aren’t a very good football team, meaning that whatever wager is made, odds are poor old Jasxon is going to lose.

Last week, Jaxson had to dance in a thong after losing a bet to the mascot of Seattle Seahawks. This week, the terns of the wager with the mascot of the Indianapolis Colts had something to do with total points scored being converted into a barrage of paintball pellets.

Final score: Colts, 37, Jaguars, 3. Being something of a math wiz, I quickly added up the point total: That’s a whopping 40 paintball pellets. Ouch.

Yikes. Poor Jaxson DeVille. Clearly he has some issues. And with early speculation indicating that Jacksonville’s Oct. 13 game against the Denver Broncos may have a point spread upwards of four touchdowns — an unheard of number in the NFL and definitely the biggest ever — let’s hope Jaxson doesn’t use point differential as a jumping-off point for his next wager.
