The University of Minnesota’s sports mascot, Goldy the Gopher joined a long list of mascot buffoons when he mocked a Penn State player in prayer before the teams played last Saturday. When defensive lineman Jerome Hayes stopped in the end zone and knelt in prayer Goldy knelt with him, then offered his hand when the player crossed himself. Hayes did not accept the handshake. Goldy then fist-bumped a Minnesota cheerleader and wiped a mock tear.
Penn State won 20-0… So who got the last laugh?
Did Goldy go too far by mocking Hayes’ faith?
