I’ve heard of it raining cats and dogs, acid rain and making it rain…but never cake rain.
For a select few at Tuesday night’s Utah Jazz game, cake has fallen on them as fast as the Jazz in the Western Conference playoff standings.
During a timeout the Jazz PR crew was attempting to hand a longtime season ticket holder a cake. Such is a normal custom in America on the day of your birth. With a guy explaining to the crowd the fan's special day, the Jazz mascot was trying to show off this pretty-looking cake with candles on top.
The Bear tipped the cake juuust a wee bit too far and the combination of sugar, eggs, flour and frosting plunged two sections, landing land smack on the middle of a few fans.
At this point there were two options:
1. The fans could pretend that one of the candle flames burnt them and promptly file a six-figure lawsuit.
2. Start throwing the cake at the people around them.
Luckily for the mascot, they chose door No. 2. Cake was hurled all around the 100 level and the video shows a girl and what seems to be her boyfriend in an epic battle of who could have the most cake on their face.
At least somebody could eat part of what looked to be a very tasty cake. The blame can be placed on the mascot, but considering the Bear is the same guy that got in a fight with a Cavs fan, maybe he needs to stick to the halftime entertainment involving half-court shots and trampolines.
