If you are seriously concerned about the mascot, and you are not < 10 years old, you need to find some better things to do with your time. Who the fuck cares?
That's my take on it. Who really gives a shit? I'll laugh at our mascot if he looks retarded too. Not to slap the Steelers in the face, but because he's a mascot. Just look at all the mascots out there. Are any of them really cool? Most of them aren't so who cares?
Let's keep the mascot talk for the offseason...on a Wednesday.
