Nuggets Mascot Passes Out While Being Lowered from Rafters (Video)


I promise I didn’t laugh the first time I saw this.

I can only assume it was the altitude.

The Denver Nuggets mascot “Rocky” passed out while being lowered from the rafters before Friday nights home opener. reported that Rocky was checked out by the team’s medical personnel before walking off the court on his own.

The plan was for Rocky to be lowered in a harness, with a spotlight on him, just before the home opener.

Fans were horrified when a lifeless Rocky was lowered to the center court where he immediately collapsed.  The spotlight was quickly turned off.

Rocky was checked by medical personnel before he walked off the court under his own power.

Word from the Nuggets was that Rocky had the wind knocked out of him and would be out for the remainder of the game.
