(Newser) – Scorch the mascot certainly wasn't complaining, but some Boston Blazers fans weren't too happy about a raunchy halftime show involving the lacrosse team's mascot. The team has apologized for the show, in which scantily clad female dancers competed to give the mascot the best lap dance, the BBC reports.

"We are extremely disappointed with elements of the halftime show,” said the team's president. “We had intended to provide an entertaining and fun halftime environment for our fans and that is not what transpired. We have already taken steps to ensure this never happens again.” Some fans labeled the performance "shameful" and "in very bad taste," while others described it as "awesome."
