Rice-Army Game Delayed By Mule Shit

Army football has often been accused of taking a shit on the field over the past few decades, but today’s delay in the Black Knights’ game against Rice was due to the mules that serve as live West Point mascots.

Live mascots are always great—I’ve met, and enjoyed the presence of, Colorado School of Mines mascot Blaster the burro—and I fully endorse animal crap making college football a bit livelier.
