The Deadspin Awards are in July—keep your eyes on this space to see how you can win tickets to the event—and we need our readers to decide the winners of these prestigious honors. Today, we ask you to vote on one of the most important of all questions: Who is the worst mascot of all?

The nominees, in no particular order:

Kingsley, Partick Thistle


Clark the Cub, Chicago Cubs

King Cake Baby, New Orleans Pelicans


Mr. Dingle, Victor Valley Wastewater Reclamation Authority

Fredbird, St. Louis Cardinals


While we have our suspicions about which mascot is going to run away with this, consider your choice carefully; all are strong, worthy candidates.

Vote. The deadline is June 18 at midnight Eastern.
