Sports Mascots Draft

4:12 PM
Some how, some way, FantasyDrafts made it into an chat. Here, the merciless worshipers of the Worldwide Leader tore into the Breakfast Cereals Draft (well, mostly Sarah's draft). Near the end of the chat Tim from Atlanta asked a simple, but brilliant, question: what would be the first pick in a draft of sports mascots?

We had found our muse. The FantasyDrafters immediately set to work on devising draft boards and working out draft day deals. Sarah and Sydney teamed up for this one. The results are below:

Round 1

Adam - San Diego Chicken
S&S - Notre Dame Leprechaun (Notre Dame)

Albert - Phoenix Suns Gorilla (Phoenix Suns Gorilla)
Dan - Youppi (Montreal Canadians/Expos)
Chris - Otto the Orange (Syracuse)

Round 2

Chris - Mr. Met (New York Mets)
Dan - Bernie Brewer (Milwaukee Brewers)
Albert - Chief Osceola and Renegade (Florida State)
Bryan - Donald Duck (Oregon)
S&S - Sammy the Slug (UC Santa Cruz)
Adam - The Oriole Bird (Baltimore Orioles)

Round 3

Adam - Handsome Dan (Yale) (Traded to Bryan for Stanford Tree)
S&S - Boilermaker Special (Purdue)

Dan - Keggy the Keg (Dartmouth)
Chris - Big Red (Western Kentucky)

Round 4

Chris - Colonel Reb (Mississippi)
Dan - Bill the Goat (Naval Academy)
Albert - Bevo (Texas)

...and a mascot to be named later? How does that work? Adam should have just taken the Tree with his pick. Having drunk with and fallen on small children with 4 iterations of the Tree, it would have been first on my draft board, and I didn't even go to Stanford.

Good lord, that's terrifying. Also it looks more like a hamburger than a crab.

How did the Fighting Artichokes of Scottsdale Community College not get drafted. I highly recommmend someone signing them to a free agent deal. Go Chokes.

Handsome Dan is way better than The Tree. You can't even throw up in that damned rubber costume. And Handsome D is at least a real person.

Otto in the 1st round! I feel like the 100+k I spent to go to SU is now well worth it. Demon Deacon was a steal btw.

Some how, all of you overlooked the remarkably appalling mascot of my mother's H.S. Remember the Orofino (Idaho) H.S. "Maniacs". The mascot would be simply ideosyncratic but for the fact that Orofino is home to one of Idaho's State mental hospitals.
