The New Mariner Mascot

While I wait for the Mariners to sign Ben Sheets to a below-market contract, I'm generating ideas for a new Mariner mascot as I'm just sick of the Mariners being represented by a caricature of a European Elk.

So here are my ideas, and I welcome suggestions. Once we get to about 50, I think I'll send it to Jack Z along with a nice little thank you letter and maybe a new turtleneck for the guy.

  • The bottle of Rainer beer
  • The Eddie Vedder
  • The Kingdome
  • The Ivar Haglund
  • The Floppy Disk
  • The Ken Griffey Sr.
  • The .com
  • The Chief Sealth
  • The Joint
  • The Jim McDermott (not intentionally put after the joint)
  • The Weedle
  • The PI Globe
  • The Barista with a Masters Degree
  • The Smith Tower
  • The Dan Savage
  • The Ferry (not intentionally put after Dan Savage)
  • The Sir-Mix-A-Lot
  • The 787
  • The Jack Perconte
What else?

I was thinking about suggesting they get a mascot dressed like Melinda Gates, but eh, that might be less attractive than the Moose.

Ouch. I feel bad already.
