On Wednesday, the Hoyas wore “I Can’t Breathe” shirts before their game against No. 10 Kansas at Verizon Center. In a development related only by time and place (and school), Georgetown mascot Jack the Bulldog rode a skateboard at halftime.

In his season debut, 18-month-old Jack the Bulldog just rode across the court on a skateboard.

Here’s a Vine of Jack practicing before the game:
In truth, Jack doesn’t really perform the act of skateboarding (i.e., propelling himself along by pushing off with a leg), so much as stay still while being rolled across the floor on one. But also in truth, that’s a pretty impressive trick for a pooch born just two summers ago.
At this rate, it won’t be long before Jack is doing aerials on a hoverboard.
