    20 Ridiculous High School Team Names

    Did you ever notice how the further down you go on the sports pyramid, the weirder the mascots get? For example, there aren’t really any professional sports teams with bizarre names. Sure, some are unusual (Indiana Pacers), anachronistic (Cincinnati Reds), offensive (Washington Redskins) or just plain dumb (Minnesota Wild), but none of them are bizarre. […]

    25 Best Real Animal Mascots in College Football

    There are lots of reasons why some people prefer college football over the NFL—the traditions, the gameday atmosphere, the historic venues, the rivalries, you name it. But personally, what really does it for me are teh mascots. And I’m not talking about the guys dressed as in giant plush cartoons. I’m talking about the real […]

    Well, if you were looking for someone to root against at the upcoming Summer Olympics, we’ve got your man. His name is Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad. He’s a 27-year-old Algerian-born Frenchman, and he a big huge douche-wad. What makes us say that?  Well on Sunday at the European Track and Field Championships in Helsinki, after Mekhissi-Benabbad won […]

    Paula Abdul Gets Down with the Phillie Phanatic (Video and GIF)

    We already knew that cheerleader-turned-singer-turned-over-medicated singing contest judge Paula Abdul likes hanging out with weirdos. There was that awesome music video for the 1989 classic “Opposites Attract” in which she danced with an animated, anthropomorphic cat. And, of course, she sat next to Simon Cowell for seven long years on American Idol before joining him […]

    20 Hilarious Mascot Fail Gifs

    Everyone loves mascots. This is especially true when your team sucks, and some zany stunt from an anthropomorphized lion or erotic banana is the only excitement you’re going to see all night. But while some mascots are world famous for their comedic shenanigans—like the Philly Phanatic, or the San Diego Chicken—most teams aren’t that lucky. […]

    9 Most Hilarious Mascot Pranks

    Oh mascots. You pretty much just appeal to little kids and the mentally handicapped, but every so often, you do something that’s very unbecoming (and normally a little mean) that makes us fall in love with you all over again. The more out of line, the better, as it’s a perfect linear relationship. Under the […]

    10 Awesome But Unofficial Sports Mascots

    Recently, it’s been a bad time to be an unofficial mascot. Half of the guys on this list have passed away in the past three years, and that’s not even counting the Hogettes, whose ranks probably grow thinner by the hour. While wearing an “outfit” to a sporting event is pretty ridiculous for kids and […]

    9 Mascots that Were Obviously Conceived by Someone on Acid

    Most teams have mascots. Naturally, some are better than others. But every once in a while, a mascot comes along that is so strange, so bizarre, that it could not have been created by an unaltered human mind. In some cases, chemicals just had to be involved. Here are nine mascots that were obviously conceived […]

    The London 2012 Mascots Are Watching You!

    Talk about creepy, Wenlock and Mendeville are just that.  The two mascots of the 2012 Olympic Games in London were unveiled on Wednesday and it appears as though organizers had to reach beyond our galaxy to find these monstrosities. Looking like something out of a Simpsons Halloween special, these one-eyed lobster-clawed figures were apparently created […]

    Mascots Doing Crazy Things (Gallery)

    Most people assume that all the action at sporting events take place on the field, ice or court, but that isn’t always the case.  Sometimes it may be the fans in the stands providing some entertainment through their own creative manner.  Other times it is the mascots providing those in attendance with something to talk […]
