Video: Seattle Seahawks mascot proves too quick for this 49ers fan who ends up face down on the ground

The fan's footwork leaves a lot to be desired...

The massive NFL rivalry between the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers was taken to the next level last week as Seahawks mascot Blitz and a 49ers fan went head-to-head.

The incident happened at CenturyLink Field in Seattle as droves of fans lined up for extra tickets that went on sale for the two teams highly-anticipated meeting on December 14. The crowd was mostly made up of Seahawks fans but a few people traveled from San Fran to try and get a ticket.

The mascot, Blitz, was the entertainment for the fans and some 49ers wanted to take the banter to the next level by challenging Blitz to a one-on-one offensive coverage competition.

The fan was dressed in classic sporting attire - jeans and a hoodie while Blitz is a giant blue bird so you'd expect the competitor who isn't dressed up in a giant costume to win, nope!

There's only one way to describe what happened, face-plant...
