A neat article on Slate (written by the very impressively-named Matthew J.X. Malady) about mascot races. Here’s my favorite from the piece:
Mayors with giant heads: The Single-A Tri-City ValleyCats’ home stadium is located near the upstate New York cities of Albany, Schenectady, and Troy. In the middle of the sixth inning, dudes in khakis and oxford shirts put on giant heads resembling each city’s mayor and race down the right-field line.
It got me thinking… pretend you own a minor league team. What would you have racing down the line?
(If you want to e-mail your own Mascot Race JPGs, I’ll do a follow up post featuring the best (or worst) of….)
