There are some really bad decisions made in sports
Team Names : I'm looking at you Richmond Flying Squirrels Baseball Team
Uniforms : Oregon Ducks vomit highlighter uniforms
Sleeping with 47 prostitutes: Tiger Woods
But today I want to talk about the wretchedness of the
10 Ugliest / Weirdest Mascots of all time
First ever mascot to get thrown out of a game (wait did I say worst mascots, maybe I really meant most awesome mascots). He jumped on top of the visitors duggout in the 11th inning of a Dodgers vs. Expos game back in 1989. Tommy Lasorda complained to the umpires and pour Youppi was ejected.
9. Phillie Phanatic
What is he? It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a monster... actually I think it is a bird. And because I like to have non-biased journalism here on Venus Trapped in Mars here is what a Phillies Fan thinks of mascot #9:
"I love the Philly Phanatic because he is always dancing, taunting the other teams with his antics and he interacts with the fans" --- Lisa Ann
"The Phanatic is hilarious and has an extensive backstory. Did you know he was from the Galapagos Islands?? He also has a mom named Phoebe who shows up sometimes AND he was on 30 Rock. He is pretty much the coolest mascot ever. And I have a Phanatic tshirt and a stuffed mascot of him. I am clearly obsessed." --- Carly
#7 Friar Dom
I'm really really really scared.
I can't unsee this guy.
7. Hip Hop the Rabbit
The monSTARS called. They want super mega Bugs back.
Raymond is in a bit of hot water this season after he held up this sign given to him by a fan. #whoops #toosoon
In 1994 Burnie selected a woman from the audience, dragged her by the feet and danced on the court with her during a time out. The woman pulled away from Burnie and fell. The woman turned out to be the wife of a Federal Judge. Enter fun fact listed above.
Time to be a good, non-biased reporter again and give a fan's point-of-view:
"I love Burnie. He makes games more fun - he's been around for a long time! He's so ugly he's cute." -- Brooke
He is kind of like a Duck Super Hero. Like Daffy Duck and Aquaman boned and Roboduck was born. I don't hate it.
3. Sammy The Banana Slug
It looks like one of the teletubbies if you ask me.
And don't google image search Banana Slug. Just don't.
2. The Fighting Okra
Torments its own students and athletes?
I think this Okra is a bit confused, you are supposed to torment the OTHER team.
After all, he is just an Okra
....and the number ONE WORST / UGLIEST / WEIRDEST / DRUNKEST Mascot ever...
1. The Stanford Tree
If the Stanford Tree Falls down drunk and no one is around to hear it, does it go to jail?
I have no words. Just this GIF.
