Philadelphia’s hockey team the Flyers unveiled today a new mascot which looks like a cross between the cookie monster from Sesame Street and Chucky from the Child’s Play movies.
Philly fans have not taken it lightly, here are some criticisms:

Flyers: “how can we get more kids to come to hockey games?” Steven King: “oh I have an idea” #gritty
The Flyers Mascot is so ugly that there is already a petition to get rid of it. #Gritty
I find it hilarious. What better way to bring back the glory days of the Broad Street Bullies than by having a mascot that scares the crap out of its own fans (I’m not from here)?
What do you think?
