Boston lacrosse team sorry for show
BOSTON -- Boston's professional indoor lacrosse team is apologizing for a racy halftime show featuring scantily-dressed women giving lap dances to the team's mascot.
An online video shows dancers taking turns gyrating in front of and on the seated mascot, Scorch, while an announcer bellows, "What do you think?"
Boston Blazers general manager Doug Reffue says the team was "extremely disappointed" with parts of the halftime show Saturday at the TD Garden. On Monday, Reffue said it was part of a halftime promotion that "wasn't executed according to how it was spelled out to us."
Reffue said the dancers were not members of the Blazers' dance team, but fans who volunteered for the halftime promotion. He declined to discuss additional details, but said it won't happen again.
