Mascot Hall of Fame

Recommended Posts

I don't know if any of you knew this but there is a Mascot Hall of Fame, I don't have a link to it, but I will tell you that they have inducted 3 in it's first year. They are the Famous(San Diego)Chicken, the Phillie Fanatic, and the Phoenix Suns Gorilla. My question is who would you have put into the Mascot Hall of Fame next year, and who would you replace. I'd replace none of them, all of them pioneers for their sport. The Chicken and Fanatic for Baseball, and the Gorilla for Basketball since he is the first ever Professional Basketball Mascot, and the best there is out there.

Interesting that not one of those mascots is related to the team name. Not complaining, just interesting.

Fredbird is starting to build up some history, so I'd say he should be in.

no they may not, but they are legends to the mascot fame, and may not have alot to do with the team name, but they do have alot to do with the history. BTW here is the link. Mascot Hall of Fame

and here is the address to the Mascot Hall of Fame

Dang nabit, I was gonna post this with a poll.

Anyway, I agree that the 3 inaugural inductees are fine picks. The Chicken practically invented the Mascot act as we know it, the Gorilla pioneered much of the Basketball Shtick that Basketball mascots do (and who doesn't like seeing a Gorilla-suited guy dunking?) and the Phanatic is (in)famous around the world.

I'd say in year 2 add in Youppi!, the Mariner Moose and the Duke Blue Devil.

In Year 3 add in Harvey, Mr. Met and, as a tip to the predecessor to the mascot, Max Patkin.

Have you ever followed baseball? This is Mr Red- mrred.jpg

Mr. Met cannot be older than 1962 (The year the Mets expanded into existence), while Mr. Red dates back to the 40's. Obviously...Mr Met was directly influenced by Mr Red

At least mr met has eyes

But one of the funniest moments that Ive seen was when I went to an AHL game at the Nassau Coliseum this year, and one of the Zooperstars got stuck in the seat right in front of me. His leg got caught and he was there for about a minute or two into the play. Another guy had to come and get him out.

Harvey the Hound (Calgary Flames)

Best mascot moment ever.

One of my favorites,

Another Harvey moment came at a Stampeder game though--at the half they staged a mascot football game--always fun, and Harvey lost his belt and his shorts came down, and he proceede to "streak"--it was quite funny and classic!

but as this HOF is in the US they may end up ignoring mascots outside the US--even in the NHL.

They will undoubtedly ignore the CFL and most of the CFL's longtime mascots (and former ones too) deserve to be in something like this-

Ralph the Dog, Gainer, Whatsis name in Montreal, and what's their name in Winnipeg ( :D )
