Local Parents Have Mixed Reactions to Lap Dance-Themed Halftime Show

The Boston Blazers (of the National Lacrosse League variety) decided to class things up a bit at their game against the Edmonton Rush by allowing the mascot to familiarize himself with a young girl working her way through college. Despite rave reviews from the furry creature, various parents in the crowd were unamused.

“I was saying to myself – what is going on?” spectator Eric Jones told KSDK News. “Something doesn’t seem right. And then I’m seeing them doing the lap dance it’s like this is not going to turn out too good. I’m hearing the crowd booing. I’m seeing parents with their kids leaving, storming out.”

The team later released the following statement in response:

The Boston Blazers halftime act for Saturday’s game was clearly not executed according to plan. We are extremely disappointed with elements of the halftime show,” he wrote. “We had intended to provide an entertaining and fun halftime environment for our fans and that is not what transpired. The Boston Blazers organization values our fans and have taken their feedback very seriously.

When he says “not executed according to plan,” what exactly does he mean? The original lap dance was classier, but some rogue stripper didn’t follow direction?
