Well, that was quick.
An ESPN oversized Lee Corso Game Day mascot head that was reported stolen the day of the Civil War was recovered Monday.
Two UO dropouts were arrested on theft charges in the case.
Oregon State Police Lieutenant Jeff Lanz said an Oregon State University employee found the mascot head near his Harrisburg-area home.
ESPN employees said the $5,000 prop was last seen in a large container at the OSU Memorial Union Quad while employees were clearing the Game Day set.
OSP troopers said 26-year-old August Cuneo was walking by the Game Day broadcast location when he took the mascot head, and later hid it in some bushes until 25-year-old Alexander Westerberg arrived in a car.
At least Erin Andrews will get a good night of sleep tonight. Her Twitter updates on Lee Corso’s head should now cease.
Now, let’s tackle this case. Unless you started bragging to your boys about ripping off the Corso head wouldn’t it have made much more sense to throw Corso’s melon off a bridge.
Or burn it?
Or sell it on Craigslist to some Oregon frat house?
We get the “having second thoughts” issue. You try to go about your life but there is this giant Lee Corso head in your closet and you have no idea what to do with it.
Then come the dreams. Then the nightmares of the giant Corso head coming to life and ass fucking you in a prison cell. Then the reality that eventually a chick will come along and snoop in your closet only to find a giant mascot head.
Shit gets awkward. In the end, the dropouts did the right thing and Corso head is home again.
