That was a speedy recovery. The New Orleans Pelicans weren't messing around about getting new mascot "Pierre The Pelican" back out on the court. Tuesday the team released a statement saying that Pierre suffered a broken beak on Saturday during a pickup game of basketball with fellow NBA mascots. (The team was really just changing the rather horrifying mascot's original face.) Today he's back healed and a little less scary looking. Imagine that...

New Orleans Pelicans ?
