A green Red Claw?

.

Ten years ago Maine debuted its first NBA G league basketball team.

.

.

And naturally its mascot was a lobster. The lobster art has morphed over the years…

.

.

But it has remained a red cooked lobster. Hence the name… ‘Red Claws’.

Mainers. We’re so clever, it hurts.

.

.

Okay, so sometimes the mascot looks more like a demonic ant….

.

.

A demonic ant on steroids.

.

.

But ya gotta admit, the dude’s got game.

Everything was going well, and in the ten years since it’s inception… the team has won three division titles. But in 2019?

.

.

The Boston Celtics bought our team. And this year?

.

.

They not only renamed our team the Maine Celtics….

.

.

They turned our red lobster green!

The Green Claws?

That’s just wrong. In so many ways.

.

Things I may have to buy.

.

I saw a list of things you should buy your significant other to show how much you love them yesterday. And while none of these products fit that bill…. they did make me chuckle at the thought of owning them and putting them in the barn bar.

.

.

Come on, you know that will come in handy someday.

.

.

Bar mascot? It could be.

Maybe if I get the husband one of these he can practice on pizza for his next remodel project. Eating those mistakes will be a lot more enjoyable than staring at his construction errors for the next 20 years.
