Why the hell not? Snoop has seemingly undergone as many transformations and name changes as Puffy but somehow doesn’t come off as pretentious or annoying unless you’re Bunny Wailer. His current incarnation as Snoop Lion is a bit interesting but ultimately irrelevant in the large scheme of all things Snoop Dogg. He’s a rapper, reggae artist, pee wee football coach and now wants to be a mascot for Celtic when they walk out against Juventus in next week’s Champions League match. Mr. Lion/Dogg/Doggfather/Doggy Dogg doesn’t just want to watch the game live. He wants to walk out with the team as one of their mascots. This role is usually filled by children but he doesn’t care. Speaking to the Sunday Mail, he said: ‘It’s the one I need to go to. It’s the game we’ve been waiting for. ‘I need tickets but I want to walk out with the team like a little kid with the banner. Yes, yes, make it happen. ‘Hail, hail the Celts are here. Yabadabadoo!’ Little did you know that The Flintstones were massive Celtic supporters during the Stone Age along with Rod Stewart and Billy Connolly. It’s unlikely that Snoop will get his wish to be a mascot no matter how much he wants it. However the possibility of him walking out with Celtic while holding hands with Gary Hooper or Victor Wanyama makes this game a must-watch besides the chance of a Celtic upset over both legs. It’s possible we’ll get around to doing a Champions League knockout round preview here but don’t hold us to it. Chelsea don’t play until Thursday so it’s not like I don’t have time.
