It was a great mascot.  Smile  thumbsup 
I don't know if mines will be counted as a mascot but I'll drop anyway.

Got to be Boomer from the Indiana Pacers. I wish I had a way to post a picture of him, but it's pretty cool when he is out there on the court.

I'd have to list my own as a possible favorite.

Behold - the Billiken. Strange but unique.

From an ATC exchange last month between my instructor and St. Louis Approach during one of our IFR cross-countries:

STL: Billiken 27, question.
BKN27: Go ahead.
STL: What is a Billiken?
BKN27: It's the school mascot. A Chinese mythical creature. You rub its belly for good luck.
STL: Billiken 27, roger.

B-52s don't take off. They scare the ground away.

Why, it's Big Red from Western Kentucky University:

Oski from Cal is another favorite of mine:

And of course, the Oregon Duck, who was suspended by the university after he appeared in his own rap video.

Timber Jim, the now retired mascot of the Portland Timbers. How can you not love a mascot with a working chainsaw?
