Sparky vs. Puddles: Mascot war reaches new heights (and new low)

Fortunately this will soon be over.

A while back, we at the Haboob Blog drew attention to the mascot battle between Sparky the Sun Devil and Puddles the Duck leading up to the Arizona State-Oregon game Thursday night in Tempe.

Each school has been producing videos — some better than others — and Tuesday Oregon returned fire with one of its better efforts.

Well, Sparky and the Sun Devils are not finished yet, and they’ve now released another campaign video. This one alludes to the idea that Puddles is a mad scientist.

Personally, we have a tough time buying that idea. I mean come on, he’s just a fun-looking duck, right? RIGHT?
