When you look at the Cavs injury report, you’ll now see an unfamiliar name. Moondog on Wednesday night engaged Pacers forward David West in a play fight, and well… it turned out to be more fight than play. West socked Moondog in the eye sending the Cavalier mascot to the hospital with an eye injury.
For the record, West admitted to being in on the fun during the pregame shenanigans and didn’t mean to cause any harm and sent Moondog his well wishes;
Moondog has turned out to be ok, and has already been released from the hospital and as slated to appear at the game on Sunday. Think it’s safe to say, he won’t be entering into any more play fights.
Furthermore just think of how bad the season has turned for the Cavs, when your mascot is getting injured, you can just take that as a sign that there’s no more bad luck to be had, and something’s got to give.
