Birmingham Striker Lukas Jutkiewicz Spotted Wearing Full-Kit At Airport On The Way To His Stag Do
Hundreds, if not thousands, of people had to look twice when they spotted Birmingham City striker Lukas Jutkiewicz wandering around Stanstead Airport this week.
Jutkiewicz, who was presumably forced into wearing a classic pair of Lonsdale trainers, was on the way to his stag do at 4:30am on Friday morning.
The Birmingham number ten proudly sported his very own kit, although shin pads seem to have gone a miss; a great shame if truth be told.
BBC journalist Hayden Atkins snapped a picture of the 30-year-old in all blue, saying it was 'a highlight' of his morning.
"Seeing Lukas Jutkiewicz head to toe in a blues kit at 4.30am at Stanstead airport going on his stag do was a right highlight this morning." he said.
I mean, stags are often the subject of ridicule, so the fact he's got away with dressing as himself is quite incredible.
On the subject of stag do's, a group of lads decided to stich their mate up and make him a mascot for the Brentford vs Bolton game in the Championship, last year.
Nick Goff isn't even a Brentford fan, but his mates happened to have contacts at the Bees and used them to great effect.
oh my Goodness. Thanks! Everyone at Brentford was absolutely superb. Hope all of the "real" mascots had a great day in spite of the imposter.- Nick Goff (@nickgoff79) January 16, 2018
For the visit of Bolton, a game which Brentford won 2-0, Nick, along with several junior mascots, walked out onto the pitch with the players.
Despite being 38-years old, typically far too old to qualify as a mascot by a solid three decades, he got the full treatment on his stag do and Brentford even made this brilliant highlights package for him.
Professional sports better Nick is getting married next week, but felt he was too old for a stag do.
His mates disagreed though, and arranged it all behind his back; only telling him to be in London at 11am on Saturday.
"I'm 38 and said I'm too old for a stag do and didn't want one," he told SPORTbible.
"My friends disagreed and said I had to have one. I was told to be in London at 11am Saturday but no idea what for - my guess was we were going to Kempton races. Then we got to Brentford, they gave me a full kit to wear but I thought that was all.
"Until they took me to the main reception and I was met by a bloke who said, 'are you the mascot'? I thought they were joking... they took me up to the hospitality area with all the other 9 year-old mascots! Bit awkward!
"But I made sure I didn't do anything to spoil their big day. [I] did a little warm up on the pitch, took a few shots, then led the teams out onto the pitch - the captain didn't want to hold my hand sadly!"
