Many factors contribute to a game’s delay. However, no one can imagine it being delayed because of poop.
TMZ reports that the SMU/Navy game on Friday night was a load of horses**t. Thanks to Peruna, the game came to an abrupt halt in the third quarter when SMU scored a touchdown and the mascot bolted onto the field to celebrate. The problem was that Peruna had loose bowels and left an unpleasant trail behind.
Officials attempted to overlook it, but SMU head coach Rhett Lashlee had other ideas and requested that the game be paused until the crap was removed. This is when a lack of preparation became a major issue. There was no strategy in place, and no equipment was available to clear the feces.
Something fans would expect SMU to have on hand considering their mascot choice. As a result, the staff was forced to trek out onto the field and clean up horse feces by hand. It took 15 minutes to get the field back into playing condition.
ESPN announcers lost it trying to explain what happened. SMU won the game 40-34. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
