Our Personal Favorite Strange Mascots

Sorry, but we can't quite get enough of the whole mascot discussion yesterday, particularly the ones that most frighten or confuse us.

Our personal favorite so far: Steamer, the mascot for the Altoona Curve, a minor league affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates. To the team, Steamer is a "cartoon model of the K4 steam engine that was manufactured at Altoona's local railyards in the 1800's." To everyone else, Steamer is a big ole bong.

But Steamer's just the beginning. After the jump, check out some of the more befuddling and amazing mascots we've found. Remember: Sometimes a good nightmare can be cleansing.
