Default RIP Scorch [UPDATE: 30 April] SCORCH LIVES!

http://poststar.com/news/local/flame...8a3dac487.html

Quote:
Scorch, the original mascot of the Adirondack Flames, will not take the ice, after a controversial preseason unveiling skit in which the puck-head mascot overpowered an actor portraying a Glens Falls firefighter.

“We’re extinguishing Scorch,” Brian Petrovek, president of the Adirondack Flames, said in an interview on Tuesday. “The misjudgment we made was such that we came to that decision.”

Let's make this a thread to honour our beloved Scorch with some pics and gifs!

I am not impressed with the way Adirondack has conducted business thus far. They are making the parent club look bad with these blunders.

He was borderline the best thing to happen to the Flames organization in the last 6 or 7 years.
