Jaguars Apologize For Mascot's Ebola Joke

Put that headline in a time capsule, so future generations can recall the brief period of time Ebola was in the news and the Jaguars were an NFL team. » 10/06/14 11:39am 10/06/14 11:39am

So Many Mascots

This might be the greatest collection of baseball talent ever gathered in one place. Twenty-six mascots posed for a class photo yesterday in Minneapolis, delighting and horrifying onlookers in equal measure. » 7/15/14 10:20am 7/15/14 10:20am

Spurs Coyote Has Eyes Mangled, Knocked Off

In the most horrifying injury of the NBA season, the Spurs' mascot took a charge from Denver's Aaron Brooks, and came up looking like a flatfish before his eyes fell off altogether. » 3/27/14 10:30am 3/27/14 10:30am

Minor League Goalie Fined For Tripping Mascot

That's goalie Mark Guggenberger of the CHL's Allen Americans, slewfooting poor Missouri Mavericks mascot Mac. Man-on-horse violence is frowned upon in the civilized world, so Guggenberger has been fined an undisclosed sum. [Puck Daddy] » 2/19/14 6:49pm 2/19/14 6:49pm

The Ballad Of The Fake Dodgers Bear Mascot

The great thing about baseball is that even after 150 years, you can watch a game and see something you've never seen before. Last night was one of those games. The renegade fan dancing atop the Cardinals dugout may have been wearing a bear suit, but this was a unique instance of guerilla mascoting. » 10/15/13 8:45am 10/15/13 8:45am

Stuffed Goat Mascot Stolen From Navy Tailgate

Fearless, the life-sized stuffed goat who usually chills out atop his owner's car before Navy games, should not be confused with Bill XXXI, Navy's live goat mascot. But he is a regular fixture at Navy pregames, and he has been kidnapped. » 10/26/12 2:50pm 10/26/12 2:50pm

The NHL Lockout's First Casualty: Florida Has Laid Off Mascot Stanley…

A work stoppage in sports, obviously, affects more than the players and owners. It takes a ton of people to make hockey go, from referees and broadcasters to concessionaires and janitors. And it's always the little guys who are first to go when the money stops rolling in. » 9/18/12 4:15pm 9/18/12 4:15pm

Minor League Mascot Eats It In ATV Crash

Rip Tide, blue fursuited embodiment of the Triple A Norfolk Tides, was out for his usual four-wheeler cruise around the stadium when he took the right field turn a little too sharp. Rip Tide was unharmed but embarrassed (especially when he couldn't get his ATV running again), and I think The Oriole Bird's big league… » 7/16/12 9:35am 7/16/12 9:35am

Minor League Mascot Placed On DL With Third-Degree Costume Burns

Uncle Slam, mascot for the Class A Potomac Nationals, was placed on the 60-day disabled list and will miss the remainder of the season. The release, from the baby Nats: » 7/06/12 4:55pm 7/06/12 4:55pm

The Rays Now Lead The AL East In Mascots

Say hello to DJ Kitty, who has crossed over from scoreboard videos to a real live man-in-suit. Don't worry, there's still a home for Raymond (who, as I learned from his bio, is actually a Canus Manta Whatthefluffalus). It's just that the Rays wanted to be the first team to get their mascot-to-spectator ratio above… » 2/16/12 4:05pm 2/16/12 4:05pm

Obie The Orange Bowl Mascot Leaves The Hospital, Probably With A Really…

It's been nearly a week since Obie was destroyed by WVU's Darwin Cook, and he (she!) is in for a lifetime of physical therapy and never-ending pain. But, baby steps. The Orange Bowl tweeted a photo of Obie leaving the hospital this afternoon, with a message for Cook. » 1/10/12 6:05pm 1/10/12 6:05pm

After Being Leveled By Darwin Cook, The Orange Bowl Mascot Will Never…

This actually came at the end of the 99-yard fumble recovery we showed you last night, and raises a greater paradox than Schrödinger's cat: how do you decapitate a mascot that is only a head? Darwin Cook tried his damndest with a clothesline on Obie, the anthropomorphic Orange Bowl orange. » 1/05/12 11:50am 1/05/12 11:50am

Molesty Sixers Mascot Needs Somebody Inside Him

We're just going to assume that B. Franklin Dogg is going to win the fan vote to become the next 76ers mascot, because his bedroom eyes and S&M collar make us laugh every time. He's McGruff, the Sex Crime Dog. "Hey kids! B. Franklin Dogg's van is full of candy!" » 12/14/11 5:35pm 12/14/11 5:35pm

A Perfectly Designed Killing Machine, The Phillie Phanatic Silently…

If you take nothing else from this insane week in sports, let it be the fact that the Phillie Phanatic was born in the Galapagos Islands. MLB has photos of the Philadelphia mascot furbirdthing "returning to his homeland" to terrify wildlife and hawk his book to local children.

Your 76ers Mascot Choices Are A.) Patriotic B.) Molesty C.) Tripping…

Hip-Hop is dead. But of the contenders to the throne—Big Ben, B. Franklin Dogg, and Phil E. Moose—only one can represent the Sixers with hot dog cannons blazing. It's up to you to vote, but there's not really a lesser of three evils here. [Sixers.com] » 12/05/11 6:35pm 12/05/11 6:35pm

Forgive Us For Overlooking The Brewers Fan Drinking Through A Horse…

Some good baseball last night. Hell, even the Milwaukee/Pittsburgh game mattered a little, in the sense that the Brewers now have home field in their NLDS. Tipster Steven F. was there to see it. But, he got distracted in the process of doing so. To wit: » 9/29/11 8:45pm 9/29/11 8:45pm

Somebody Stole A Minor-League Baseball Mascot's Head And That Makes…

"'Stomper' the bear disappeared from All Pro Freight Stadium in Avon [Ohio] sometime last month. With eight games left to go in the season, fans immediately took notice. 'He's a little overweight and that keeps him warm in the winters. He's fun-loving and loves to dance,' said Crushers V.P. Dan Helm. 'People… » 9/21/11 10:00pm 9/21/11 10:00pm
