Amarillo Sox mascot is a real boner

The Amarillo Sox are an independent minor league baseball team in Texas and after showcasing their new mascot, we have to say they are giving Scrotie, the giant penis mascot for the Nads hockey team at the Rhode Island School of Design a run for his money.

The pic of the Sox’ mascot taken by Amarillo.com is shown here and if it’s family entertainment you’re shooting for, this is a gaffe, a mistake, a real boner…

Have to wonder if the team’s staff may have sent their new mascot to the (cold) showers after realizing what he looked like walking the isles shaking hands with the fans in his inaugural game.

The Amarillo Globe News interviewed GM Mark Lee who said:

“I’m very disappointed in the lady who did it, and I’ve told her so. She is going to make the changes we want. I want to say on the record, if we offended anybody, I apologize.”

Now we know the competition involved with creating new mascots is stiff but shouldn’t the….wait….a lady designed and created this costume?

Interesting….have to wonder if she had any help from a subliminal source.

The Nads’ ‘Scrotie’ is king of the mascots

The Rhode Island School of Design may own the most bizarre name and mascot in sports after edging out the ‘Farts’ and ‘Whoopee’. The team is “The Nads” and the mascot is Scrotie:

In 2001, the unofficial mascot evolved for The Nads and skated around the ice in what looked more like a late-night, prize-winning Halloween costume than mascot attire. The video above shows Scrotie chasing an opposing mascot “Clammy” at one of the college’s hockey games.

RISD has proudly promoted their two men’s teams on its website writing, “RISD’s sports teams include basketball “The Balls” and ice hockey “The Nads”.

After the Nads hockey team was put in place, the basketball team was then formed under the name ‘Balls’ to stay consistent with the ice hockey team.go-nads-mascot

Each team developed its own slogan, the basketball team’s being, “When the heat is on, the Balls stick together”, and the hockey squad sticking with a more simple “Go Nads” that is found on their fan’s attire.

Scrotie is pictured on the right on the ice in his wiener costume and red cape.

He has since been given the shaft but will best be remembered for having the balls to screw with the opposition.
