There's a crazy new mascot in Philly!

Someone on the internet said that it is simultaneously the worst and greatest mascot of all time, and I have a hard time disagreeing with that thought process.

People here have said there is concern about the mascot appearing to be scary to kids. Which seems fitting because the Flyers have been scaring their parents for over 40 years.

Sometimes the Flyers even scared Parent.

I enjoyed all the things that Wendig said about the figure but the first and only thing that crossed my mind when I first saw it was: Muppet Dynasty.

Must be tough having to make an outfit like that so it'll pass Philly municipal sports facility code. The material has to be both fire and vomit resistant.

Fitzpatrick threw for monster yardage again last night, but with those 3 picks, I'm worried that Jameis is going to get his job back and won't be available as a Supreme Court confirmation character witness.
