Panther Rants Exclusive
(Milwaukee) Panther Rants has learned that Marquette University has inked an endorsement deal with C-list actor Vincent Pastore. The deal, which was to be announced at half-time of last night's basketball game, would include introduction of Pastore as the new mascot of Marquette athletic teams. Pastore, who has been out of work since he was killed off of 'The Sopranos' would stroll the baseline and lead cheers, replacing the Golden Eagle that currently represents the university. "We felt this was a natural union", said Marquette Athletic Director Bill Cords. "In the sports world, our basketball team is widely recognized as perhaps the biggest bunch of pussies outside of those pantywaists that play in Durham". Mr. Cords also hinted that head basketball coach Tom Crean was close to signing an endorsement deal with SmithKline Beecham to promote a new fast-acting feminine wash.
