It’s March Madness. Those of us who love college basketball (hi Kevin S. and COPO) love this time of the year. It’s exciting and fun and part of that fun is watching teams go up the bracket.
Baseball doesn’t really have the need for brackets, which is a shame. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
This is an introduction to March Mascot Madness! We’re going to pit mascots against each other and seeing which one reigns supreme. I am still working on the seeding for the mascots, but I will have it up by the end of the week.
How it will work is this: I will post a bracket that has the major MLB mascots on it. I promise I will not allow my personal preferences to affect the seeding – you don’t have to worry that you’re going to see Orbit as the rigged winner, okay? I mean, if he does win, that’s cool, but I’m not going to make the bracket weighted heavily towards my favorite furry alien.
So for now, talk amongst yourselves. Who is your personal favorite mascot? Who do you hate with the fire of a thousand suns? Many teams have multiple mascots; which team do you wish would get rid of their official main mascot and use one of their secondaries?
