02:26 PM ET 10.10 | The Toronto Raptors are doing their best to generate interest in the franchise. From the announcement that Drake will be an adviser to hopes that they can land hometown star Andrew Wiggins next year, the Raptors are being well received from their fans. Unfortunately, the team will not be able to get the crowd going at the same rate as last season at home games because the mascot has been injured. That's right, the Toronto Raptors mascot will miss the remainder of the season with a ruptured Achilles tendon. The man, who has not been identified, inside the unnamed mascot has been the team's mascot for 17 years.

Timbits is the brand name of doughnut holes sold at the Canadian-based franchise Tim Hortons. The treats were introduced in April 1976 and are now available in various flavours that differ from store to store. Flavours include, but are not limited to, chocolate glazed, jelly filled, dutchie, honey dip, sour cream glazed, old-fashioned plain, old fashion glazed, blueberry, strawberry, raspberry, lemon, apple cider, orange-tangerine, creamy caramel, cherry cake, honey cruller, and apple fritter.[1]

The "bit" in the word Timbit is an acronym for Big In Taste, which was half of the slogan for the original 1976 ad campaign "Big In Taste, Small In Size".[citation needed] It is also a play on the word "tidbit" (a delicate bit or morsel of food).[2]

Other doughnut chains in Canada and the United States sell virtually identical products, often called "doughnut holes".
