Video de bungee jumping
Pregame mascot hijinks were taken up a notch Sunday before the Jacksonville Jaguars' home game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Jags mascot Jaxson de Ville (get it?) bungee jumped from a lighting tower at EverBank Stadium prior to kickoff, raising the stakes for all other mascots used to driving around in a golf cart and stealing popcorn from unsuspecting children:
Sunday wasn't Mr. De Ville's first brush with danger, both literal and figurative. The mascot has zip-lined across the stadium on several occasions (including last year when he ended up getting stuck over the field for three minutes), but is perhaps best known for inspiring a rule requiring mascots to stay on the sidelines. That came after the mascot's antics during a Monday night game in 2007 drew a complaint from Indianapolis Colts GM Bill Polian.
Jaxson's jump was likely the most exciting thing Jags fans saw all day at the stadium. The hometown team gained just 184 yards in a listless 28-3 loss to and the Eagles.
