Extreme football mascot is a cut above

WHEN you hear the words ‘football mascot’, you tend think of a man in a giant cute-suit, or a small child in a football strip… well not in Portland, they don’t.
As I learned on the excellent Dirty Tackle blog today, the new-to-MLS Portland Timbers team have plumped for a giant hairy ogre of a man with a live chainsaw.
The hulking Timber Joey – who is also a rugby player and bare back bucking bronco rider – acts as the team cheerleader and frequently gets his throbbing chopper out to cut a slice of wood from a trunk he brings to matches to hand to goalscorers.
I think he may be my favourite football mascot of all time – can anyone suggest a contender?
