The New York Mets had a strange night. Instead of apologizing for the team's poor play in their blow-out loss to the Milwaukee Brewers at home, the team was forced to apologize for the actions of its famed mascot Mr. Met.
After the ugly 7-to-1 loss, Mr. Met was caught on video giving some fans the middle finger. It appeared that some fans may have been giving him a hard time, but it's unknown what was said to him. Regardless, the person behind the large baseball head will have to find a new job. A statement from the team reads, "We apologize for the inappropriate action of this employee. We do not condone this type of behavior. We are dealing with this matter internally." The team says there are a few people employed to play the mascot and the one caught on video will be fired.
