The Miami Heat’s mascot, Burnie, had his birthday on Sunday. To celebrate, Burnie had several of his mascot pals join him at American Airlines Arena for the Heat’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers, and he included them in his attempt to set a world record for longest mascot jump.

The attempt was not a success.

Mascot jump world record jump #Burnie. You’re welcome

Maybe the best part was how Burnie celebrated as though he nailed the jump. Not so much, Burnie.

Also, hopefully the Florida Panthers’ mascot Stanley C. Panther was wearing a cup.
