You might not know it from conventional journalism, but there’s more teams in Scotland than Rangers and Celtic. While they’re busy ruining the league for everyone else, the other clubs quietly get on with playing each other in less media-friendly matches.
Dunfermline’s mascot Sammy the Tammy has managed to raise a stir by irritating the away fans. As the local paper explains:
Before the Fife derby kicked off on Saturday Sammy appeared on the pitch in what looked like a cardboard tank and pretended to open fire at Raith Rovers fans.
Absolutely glorious, particularly the drawn-on wheels.
Sammy has previous form, having earned a bollocking for sledging down the stand:
Sammy is believed to have been trying to pay tribute to Amy Williams, who had just won Olympic Gold in the skeleton bob. However, he was less successful than his icon, banging to a halt halfway down the stand after veering into fans seats.
As much as we love Sammy, we feel we must mention the Gunnersaurus, Arsenal’s mascot, who preposterously observed a minute’s silence with the team.
