When Trees Drink Too Much

Stanford gives drunken mascot the ax

Quote:
STANFORD, Calif. - A rowdy Stanford University mascot was fired after being discovered drunk during a basketball game, university officials said.

Fifth-year senior Erin Lashnits, who dresses as a tree for the university's irreverent band, was stripped of her duties last week after her blood-alcohol level was measured at 0.157 during a men's basketball game at the University of California, Berkeley. For the purposes of driving a vehicle in California, legally drunk is .08.
I thought it was a job requirement...

I don't think I'd show up in a band after drinking, but then hell, I don't drink.

I think drinking would be the only way you could get me to dress like a tree.

I might have a drink if someone forced me to dress up like a tree. That's pretty funny, a fake tree.

Well it doesn't look quite like what I was picturing.

Ohhhhh memories of watching Stanford football games and the wacky band from my youth! That was before they were the Stanford "Trees" The band is highly entertaining though. You'd think sometimes THEY were all drinking!!!

We've seen our fair share of college games. "Beer for the band" is a commonly heard chant.
