The Boston Blazers have taken the publicity stunt to a new level.
Boston’s indoor professional lacrosse team earned some headlines over the weekend when the team hosted a halftime show for the ages — ages 18 and older, that is.
During the intermission, scantily-clad female dancers were involved in what appears to be a lap-dance contest with Blazers mascot, Scorch, as seen in the video below.
The team released a statement on Sunday on its Facebook page.
“The Boston Blazers half time act for Saturday?s game was clearly not executed according to plan. We are extremely disappointed with elements of the halftime show,” said Blazers president and general manager, Doug Reffue. “We had intended to provide an entertaining and fun halftime environment for our fans and that is not what transpired. The Boston Blazers organization values our fans and have taken their feedback very seriously.
“We have already taken steps to ensure this never happens again at one of our games,” he added. “Over the past three seasons the Blazers have worked to bring our fans a terrific sports and entertainment value. We are committed to our community involvement in Boston and dedicated to our fans. We will re-double our efforts to ensure a great experience at all future Blazers games.”
