    Wow, maybe Jax (Jaxson De Ville) makes the cut. According to this interview with him (http://www.sportsrant.com/jaxson-ville-interview-jacksonville-jaguars-a26491.html/) he married a cheerleader.

    I’m an Eales fan and the piece of crap the team foists on us inspires nobody. Back in the 70’s and 80’s there was an unofficial one named Bird Brain who walked the stands and was very popular, but they wouldn’t let him on the field. They didn’t own him I guess. Here’s an article about Bird Brain: http://www.citypaper.net/articles/112901/cs.cover1.shtml

    Finally, Mr.Met gets the place of respect he deserves, above the obnoxious Phanatic. It was a real slap in the face when the Phanatic was inducted into the Mascot HOF two years ahead of Mr.Met. As much of a HOF slight as the continued exclusion of Tim Raines.

    I just want to give the Kansas Jayhawk some props. 

    Also, the Kansas City Chiefs mascot is a big, dumb wolf.  Mind-numbingly stupid…

    Bravo!

    You will be hard pressed to find a mascot that so elegantly embodies the principles of sports fanaticism as a man with a giant ball for a head. Mr. Met is not just a homer with a store-bought jersey. He’s clearly fan of the game itself.

    Mr. Met should also receive top billing on sportsmanship alone. Having been to innumerable games in New York and Philadelphia I’ve seen a marked difference in their behavior. The puerile insults by the Phanatic masquerading as humor and cheerleading embody the reputation that Philly fans have earned.

    The Phanatic is just a fat slob with a snout. Or is it a beak? What the hell is that thing anyway?

    Mr. Met is an OG. He deserves #1 over that Philly nonsense.

    Also, what is the difference between the Auburn and LSU mascots? Why are there 2 generic Tiger costumes on the list?

    In the early years of our defunct AAA team in Ottawa the mascot was “Lenny the Lynx”.  The first owner, Howard Darwin, was notoriously cheap.  The “mascot” consisted of a big mascot type “lynx head ” + one of the unused uniforms.  In other words a guy walking around in a baseball uni with a big oversized cats head.  So awful it was great.

    Ummmm…BillyBeaneis. I think Jerry Remy is gonna be knockin’ on your back door if you keep hating on the green guy. For what it’s worth, my kids love Wally- and I think that is the intended audience, not a bunch of stat-heads.

    Mr Met wasn’t even a mascot till a few years ago, was he? It was just a marketing image used in ads, and I think it disappeared for years.

    I’m glad there’s not a single one from the NFL. They’re all completely bogus.

    The Twins show their true colours on their mascots page, citing his home runs, rbis and batting average in the carnivore league.
