They are ridiculous and should die eg Mr. Met, that walrus/seal from San Fran, that sausage race in Milwaukee, the fish from Florida, etc. And in other sports as well.

Long live the San Diego Chicken, that moose in Seattle, and the Stanford tree.

Self-appointed mascots don't count (sort of like trying to give yourself a nickname)

Does Freddie count as a mascot? I've banged his pan about 20 times...

edit: It's not what it sounds like.

He'd still be a Sox homer in NY.

Yankees don't have a Mascot do they?.....:(

The most notable 'symbol' is the 'interlocking NY per Sterling....or the red/white striped TopHat with the 'bat' thru the bottom..

Which...btw...is the most 'beautiful' tattoo I've ever seen. An ex-coworker of mine had one on the outside of his right bicep and I'm tellin' ya now..it was a thing of beauty......:ga-ga:

I love love LOVE mascots! Philly Phanatic and Bevo the Longhorn (the real live one, not the "fake" Bevo) from UT most of all. I'm an absolute sucker for all things zany and ridiculous.

At the same time, I'm glad the Dodgers dumped that stupid plan to adopt one and that the Yanks don't have one either.

live mascots I like, but not humans in goofy outfits: Bevo, Uga (all of them), etc.

Stanford's mascot is by far the strangest. What exactly does a tree represent? Especially a tree with a face.:lol:

I Bumped this because I didn't think that the news that the Philly Fanatic was dumped in a Giant can of red paint yesterday deserved a new thread.

Fans pose with the Phillie Phanatic in front of a giant can of red paint Monday. (Rosemary Rahn/Phillies)

First of all: that's a travesty to ruin the Phillie Phanatic.

Second: Mr. Met is the best mascot ever. I'd have him at my birthday party (http://balgavy.com/danbday2003/IMG_7087.jpg) anyday. He was also in one of the best sportcenter commercials.

Third: Mascots as a whole are harmless. I was Rhody the Ram a few times in college. It's fun. This was one of the coolest things ever at a URI game.


Feb. 3, 1998: The famed St. Joe's Hawk—routinely named Best College Mascot by sporting magazines for his supremely irritating "Never Die" trick of flapping his wings during the duration of a basketball game—is assaulted by the University of Rhode Island mascot, Rhody the Ram. In an attempt to stop the prideful wing-flapping once and for all, Rhody wedges an innertube over the Hawk's body, immobilizing the rival mascot. He is ejected from the game and ultimately suspended for his actions. Later in the game, a teenager strikes the Hawk in the face. URI Athletic Director Ron Petro: "The Ram was wrong. He should not be doing that. That's not the kind of sportsmanship we want."

I love the Phanatic! I went to a Phillies game last year and he was all I watched (that and the out of town scoreboard to know how the yanks were doing!) I even got a Phanatic build a bear which unfortunately died a painful death... :(

I'm disappointed... I was hoping a baseball player went Randall Simon on the Phillie Phanatic. Oh, well.

Did anybody else notice that a lot of RO'd names appear on this thread?

Great one!

You know.. I love the sausage race. One of them is named Saul and that's my last name. hehe.

The best was when (I think) Dmitri Young took a swing at one of the sausages and knocked it over while it was running by the dugout, lol.

Yes, I noticed all the ROs too.

i love the brat races! goooo italian!
i took this picture a couple weeks ago. when people look at it, they want to know why the hell are these phallic symbols running on the field. it's weird being a yankee fan and then going to brewers games. and that song they sing - roll out the barrel- i swear they made up words.
but yea, i love the sausage race.

What? The Green Mawnstah in Boston is a freaking Sesame Street character! All jokes. ;) I don't mind mascots at all, and although my allegiances lie with Emperor Steinbrenner and Darth Torre I have a soft spot for dogs. :D
