Sixers Have Three Finalists for Potential New Mascot

Ever since “Hip-Hop” was kicked to the curb, the Sixers have narrowed their choices for a new mascot down to three candidates. Neither one will blow your socks off. Per the Philly Inquirer: “The owners reviewed drawings and have selected three finalists. Voting is under way at SixersMascotFanVote.com. The three finalists are: 1) A 7-foot tall rendition of Ben Franklin, named ‘Big Ben.’ * 2) Franklin Dogg, the All-American pet, adapted from artist drawings from the day nestled under the table beside Franklin. 3) Phil E. Moose, a 7-foot tall adaption of a basketball player; the moose being ‘one of the most regal animals to roam the wild.’ Once a selection is made, Raymond will help bring the winner to life. The new mascot is expected to debut early in the season.”

    I would vote for the dog but Mike Vick is in Philly and I can hear the lame jokes already.

    I like the Moose for no other reason than because somebody claimed it as “one of the most regal animals to roam the wild.” Apparently, they’re very unlike those elk running amok in Sweden (click my name for the story)

    That Elk was lit up, fermented apples FTW. Seriously but how can the evidence from a woman murdered by an Elk lead to a man being arrested, surely it would be fairly simple to figure out a woman found dead in the forrest was killed by an Elk.

    ^They say elk are “one of the most inebriated animals to roam the wild”. I hope you saw the story about another elk (click my name)

    7 foot will smith

    7 ft Penis

    I am devastated. I really wanted Will Smith to be the mascot. I would buy season tickets just for him. They should get DJ Jazzy Jeff to announce. I like the guy they have now, but Jazzy would be THE MAN.

    Let’s get Yao another shot
    As a mascot
    A 7ft6 Chinese man!

  • anip

    LAME LAME LAME choices (all three ot them). They don’t hold a candle to Hip Hop.
    I think the owners should admit their error and beg the return of the rabbit. Whos us the Bunny!
