Ruby Tuesday - Dueling Mascots




A conference of mascots is not something we see every day. So I don't think that these fellows are actually having an argument. But since they do not talk in a language we understand (ie: silence), who can say??

Happily the mascots are festooned in the favorite color for this day each week, they are perfect subjects for Mary's always fun Ruby Tuesday

At a college basketball game last week, we captured a pair of furry mascots Rocky from the New Britain (CT) Rock cats, Class AA - Minnesota Twins, and the always smiling Howie Hawk, the lovable mascot of the University of Hartford. The cross promotional mascots of marketing are a perfect pairing for RT - right??

I really like that chicken (?) in the right photo. He's a hoot! I'm ready to root for the Hartford Hawks, too (oh, is he supposed to be a hawk? Doesn't look like one).

Perfect red indeed! My boys would love to see this for sure!

Carly said...

What sort of business do you suppose mascots need to discuss when they conference like that?

"Dude! Today was NOT supposed to be stripes day!"

"Uh, yes it was, that's why I'm wearing stripes"

"Do I have to call you every morning to make sure we're coordinated?"

"Aw, c'mon - what kind of girlie-girl garbage is that?"

etc.

I love those walking mascots! Yours are really neat. My vote goes for Rocky. Who won?
Our Nebraska ladies should have Harry Husker running around them.
Yea for them! The ladies won against LSU! GO BIG RED!

I can feel the adrenaline flowing! Sports are so much fun - even the little leagues. Great reds!

if only we could read beaks ;)

I loved your comment about the shopping cart

Rita said...

Great shot. Shame you could not have gotten Fredbird the mascot of our St. Louis Cardinal included in that shot. Then you may have seen some feathers fly.
Hawks and cardinals???

Ann said...

I always wonder if the head is too heavy and the costume make them too hot.
