Another reason why he’s always so mad
Bleacher Report, a website dedicated to sports news, offers up the nations creepiest mascots in a recent post. Guess whos No. 1?
Its Fort Waynes own Mad Ant, the angry insect pacing the Coliseum sidelines at the citys NBA Development League games.
Its less of a mascot, however, and more of a grinning menace to society, Bleacher Report concludes. It motivates the team and crowd through naked fear.
Also making the list, at No. 4, is Purdue Pete, the Boilermakers mascot.
There is nothing in Purdue Petes face but emptiness, observes Bleacher Report. Theres no smile, no gladness in the eyes – nothing. This is the face of a man who goes to horrifying lengths to feel emotions.
Or, it might simply be a football season with little to smile about.
