Drunken Tree Embarrasses Stanford Band
In another scandal involving long-time bedfellows alcohol and the Stanford Band, the Stanford tree mascot has been relieved of its duties by the band.
According to the Assistant AD over at Stanford, the fifth-year biology student inside the tree suit was "taking drinks inside the tree. The officers could see the flask through the costume."
The girl in the costume, Erin Lashnits, was breathalyzed after officers noticed her dancing on the court during a game on February 9th, which is allowed during home games. Prolem is, this game was at Cal.
She blew a 0.157.
Not bad, Erin. Not bad at all.
Apparently, this is a big deal because it violates the Stanford Band's 3-year alcohol ban, and the tree mascot is for some reason considered part of the band. The ban has been in place ever since that drunken bus ride through LA back in odd-3.
Give a bunch of nerds from Southern California some instruments, put them on a bus, and they bring peppermint schnapps and vomit in the sink.
