This happened.

This is the best they came up with for a mascot.

Is it seriously killing a fireman?

Epic fucking fail.

Apparently an official apology has been issued for the fireman killing photo.

Quote:
We also crafted a skit that helped to launch the new mascot – with the help of the Glens Falls Fire Department. While it seemed in good taste when it was on the drawing board, it is evident now that it was in poor taste.
