Ten random things: Reader Request Month, day 29

Ten sports mascots:

  1. Buzz and Boomer (Winnipeg Blue Bombers)
  2. Sir Purr (Carolina Panthers)
  3. Lou Wolf (Loyola University Chicago)
  4. The Suns Gorilla (Phoenix Suns)
  5. Athena and Phevos (2004 Summer Olympics)
  6. Boxing Kangaroo (1983 America's Cup competitor Australia II; 2004 Australian Olympic team)
  7. Cyril the Swan (Swansea City Association Football Club)
  8. Fin the Whale (Vancouver Canucks)
  9. Striker (1994 FIFA World Cup)
  10. Phillie Phanatic (Philadelphia Phillies)

Today's list is for thewalnut, whose love for all things Philadelphian led her to ask to see the Phillie Phanatic mentioned in a list. She will no doubt be very proud to know that the Phanatic is a charter member of the Mascot Hall of Fame. Go it!
