Scorch, possibly the most insane sports mascot ever created, has been scratched. Permanently.

“We’re extinguishing Scorch,”

The fire-themed mascot of Petrovek's AHL team was benched for the team's home opener on Saturday after he was featured in a skit that showed him, well, killing an actor playing a firefighter.

If the lunacy of his design wasn't enough to consign Scorch to the ash heap of mascot history, the tone-deaf skit did the trick.

Petrovek said that Flames' management is designing a new mascot that will be associated with “fun, not fear.” That's probably a good plan considering that a mascot is primarily supposed to enchant and entertain children.
