Hooter the Owl featured on ESPN commercial

They say any exposure is good exposure, but Temple’s mascot makes a fool of him(her?)self in the most recent “This is SportsCenter” commercial.

Our beloved Hooter is seen walking into a clear glass window while three SportsCenter personalities discuss facilities management in a conference room. “Seriously, we’ve got to get this glass frosted,” quips Stuart Scott after the Boston College Eagle mascot follows suit.

It’s been said that the commercial was produced prior to former football coach Steve Addazio’s departure for Boston College. If that’s true, then the commercial is an uncanny example of foreshadowing of Temple’s lack of foresight into Addazio’s impending departure.
