First the Presidents copy the Sausage Race, now these.  Can't the world come up with an original idea instead of stealing someone else's??

The single A stadium I used to live near raced the local mayors around the stadium in the fifth inning.

If there was justice in the world they'd have Hawk Harrelson racing a can of corn.

Awferchrissakes! Just play baseball. Quit distracting me from the game. This isn't Mardi Gras.

Nope....the Cubs is still worse. At least at Comiskey they have urinals and not a trough.

Someone is greatly underestimating the suckage that is Clark.
 
2014-03-27 09:45:49 PM  
To be fair, they plan on giving the instadium fans the same experience the home viewers get. So at the start of every race, the Harrelson mascot will trip over the imaginary starting line, shiat himself, and the fans will have to smell it the rest of the game.

They should offer season tickets to the first person to run onto the field and beat Hawk to death with a bat.

And not a baseball bat, either.  Ein fledermaus.

When did Jim Rome, Greta van Susteren, Jim Nantz, and the guy from Dumb and Dumber with ulcer problems become White Sox announcers?
 
2014-03-27 10:18:14 PM  
The Brewers get to do it, the Pirates get to do it, and the Nationals get to do it. Everybody else needs to come up with something else.

I don't think subby knows what the word 'mascot' means.

those are not mascots. those are 'character racers'.

they will only race on Sunday games at home at the top of the 7th inning.


the White Sox mascot is Southpaw:

WTF?   seriously all the White sox had to do was maintain the status quo an they would be up one on the Cubs.

wxboy - find out what Randall Simon is up to.

Why would you want to honor the worst announcers in baseball?

If Randall Simon were to do this we should chip in for bail money

What the hell is that? His pelt looks like it was the shag carpeting salvaged from some 70s custom van.

I think subby was referring to the marketing genius and not the mascot.

I can't be critical.  The Rangers once had Rootin' Tootin' Ranger and the Cowboys still have Rowdy.

Yeah the Rockies have Dinger, the dinosaur.

Yeah, these are stupid, but it sounds like subby is a Cubs fan that was butthurt about all the hate that Clark and the Cubs got on fark.

Just play the farkin game already.

Wow... I had never even heard of that one.  That's probably the worst version of Yosemite Sam I've ever seen.

I'm ashamed to admit, I think my Athletics started all this racing nonsense with the scoreboard Dot Racing. Of course, that wasn't good enough, now they have their own Hall of Fame players' race.You'd think Rickey would win every race, but nooooo, the game is rigged.

I do like the idea of Hawk Harrelson taking a five-minute beating during every game.

They need to have either Hawk or Farmer never win and usually come in last. It would be GLORIOUS to have Stone start ragging Hawk about his mascot guy not having The Will To Win or something.

That would be absolutely hilarious.
Also reminds me I have to get my "T-Dub T-Dub" shirt made before my trip to the Cell.

All mascots are awful. They're not for us adults, they're for kids.

And Hawk is now awful at three things: play by play, general managing, and mascotting.
 
2014-03-29 12:30:18 AM  
Just what we needed; something to even further exaggerate Hawk Harrelson's symptoms of deep alcoholism.
