Best mascot/thing in world football goes to the MLS though:
Best we can must is U-sector, and even then the TFC "ultras" fight amongst themselves, saddos.

I still think about it most days
at a quick glance it looked like he was playing
he's buffed up though
FITZCARRALDO, LOOK AT MY NEW PROFILE PIC <3
i saw it earlier, are you the one on the right?
p.s. you better be watching this later or you've got to hand back your badge
I forgot to bring a nappy with me, so it's probably better I don't watch it at all. EEEEEP.
or sit in a seat you've just left ;)
Mercifully they haven't had the heart to bring him to matches(yet), so all the pictures of it are weird incongruous shots of it at/on the way to publicity events:
Also, leave Gunnersaurus alone.
We had JJ, who looked like a demented Cabbage Patch doll. Then the C.A.F. "Stripey":
And now we have Phoenix and Blue who look like they're from Midgar: http://www.wiganlatics.co.uk/cms_images/mascots-4x373-210126_478x359.jpg
City have/had one called Moonchester (appalling). Then there was a bit of an appeal to get a female mascot as well. I forget what she was called (Mooncup, or something, idk). No-one really knew if they were supposed to be a couple, or brother and sister, but they used to hold hands and kiss quite a bit.
does tradition mean NOTHING in football anymore?!
those last two are horrific
Sort of a perfect exitentialist portrait of how Arsenal fans must feel about the last five years.
and had to judge which of four fans managed to kick a ball closest to the centre circle from a corner flag, with the prize being a car. When they said, 'Who's won, Billy?' he couldn't really see properly and just pointed randomly at the wrong bloke entirely. The bloke who actually won went ballistic and sent the club loads of emails demanding the head of Billy the Badger. In the end the club had to give him a car too.
Ctryl + F 'that time wolfie ought the three little pigs'
He's a goodun.
Best thing about it.
Side note - the pigs were not Bristol City mascots but mascots of a window firm who were sponsoring the game.
Was a bit shit, but we're the terriers, it was a terrier, fair enough. Then one day, someone decided that we wanted something that looked more athletic. So we swapped our terrier for a thundercat. Danny Gee (who is one of my favourite people on the internet) who writes excellent cartoon match reports for his site www.htfc-world.com made a glorious video explaining the change. You can watch it here.
the 'insane OAP' - or The City Gent to give him his proper name - is one of two mascots.
They might have to advertise for a new Gent if he gets too svelte.
still gets his belly out though, which is good
