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.
