The thing about mascots that is fun is that there aren’t really any rules.
A mascot can be a tree, a green guy from the Galapagos Islands, a bulldog, or even a giant orange fluffy creature that squeaks.
The city of Philadelphia has had the pleasure (?) of introducing a gaggle of new mascots over the past few months, from the Union’s new snake with arms to the Flyers’ instant legend Gritty.
And Friday, the resurgent lacrosse team in town, the Wings of the National Lacrosse League, introduced a mascot of their own.
