There are a lot of questions being asked in the photo above. David Clarkson is asking the referee "Why are you giving me a penalty? Why can't I sit on this guy?, while Matt Read is asking anyone who will listen "Why is this guy sitting on me? Why are the Leafs so, so bad?"

I have no idea what Utica's mascot is supposed to be, but I must say, he makes me appreciate Duke the Dog so much more. Being a dog has nothing to do with being the Duke of Marborough, but at least I can relate to owning a dog. This thing? Not so much. At the end of the day though, they're just mascots, and the game is what matters. In today's game, the Toronto Marlies squeaked out a 3-2 victory.
