The 500 Section Sub-Committee on Mascots and In-Game Entertainment is still in preliminary debates on the upcoming Mascot Super Bracket. In the meantime, may we present to you our top 8 best mascot moments, presented in lovely GIF format:
8. The 12th Mascot
Just remember, mascots are just as committed to their team as fans are. If not more…
Even if it means committing mascot-on-mascot crimes (which The 500 Section does not condone)
7. Houston, We Have a Mascot
Now mascots are supposed to be fun loving, cuddly looking, smiles on kids inducing creatures of happiness. But sometimes they can be complete a&*holes. May I present to you, the teddy bear looking “Clutch” of the Houston Rockets
6. Field of Mascots
Sometimes, even the mascots play better than the Jacksonville Jaguars
T-4. Mascots Eating Cheerleaders/Dancers
The sisters to the mascots brotherly love is of course the cheerleader/dance squad contingents. Sports being a male oriented fanbase (something that desperately should change!), of course the addition of scantily clad women was bound to happen. At least at the pro-level you don’t have the Brent Musburgers of the world ogling 19 year olds…let’s just move on to the GIFs…
Toronto Raptor Attack!
Tennessee Titans (Whatever this mascot is) Attack!
3. The Toronto Raptor – Jurassic Park Down
The Toronto Raptor might be the hardest working mascot in all of sports. So hard, he will be out the 2013-14 NBA season with a torn ACL. See this write up from Grantland for more details:
2. Sheffield Wednesday Owls
The SWFC Owls currently hold the European Mascot Title Belt until the VfB Alligator or Chelsea’s Mr. Toffee challenge them.

1. The Phillie (Philandering) Phanatic
Everyone’s favorite green monster south of Boston is probably a heavy favorite for a #1 seed in the Mascot bracket.
