According to sources, Ted the duck has been ejected from yet another game of pickup basketball for playing too dirty. Ever the competitor, Ted has proven notorious on the basketball court for his overly aggressive style.

“We warned him beforehand to tone it down,” says teammate Anthony Marsh. “But around the second quarter, he started with the usual stuff. Throwing elbows, trash talking. Fouling on purpose. Someone had to take him out.”

The duck was swiftly directed to the sidelines, where he continued shouting at players.

“They had to hold him back,” says Marsh. “I’m all for being competitive, but Ted always takes it way too far. If he wants to play again, he’s going to have to learn to cool it.”
