Alexis is wearing the Shock Collar this morning!
Most of the time, when sports franchises choose their mascot, they try to tie in a little bit of the local culture, like the Pittsburgh Steelers’ “Steely McBeam” a steel worker…. Or sometimes they hold contests where people can submit their own mascots, like when a 10 year old Washingtonian boy suggested a Moose for the Seattle Mariners.
But one unique mascot I’m talking about today is “Dinger” the Colorado Rockies Triceratops. It’s an odd choice, but there’s actually a very logical reason for why the team’s mascot is a dinosaur. Please tell me why?
