LET'S PLAY BALL!
Let me introduce you to Raymond......"Ray"mond is the politically correct mascot for the Tampa Bay Rays. The Rays used to be the Devil Rays...but you can just guess how we got from point A to point B. Anyway, Raymond is ecstatic because his team, the Tampa Bay Rays, beat the Boston Red Sox to take the American League Pennant for the first time ever! Now they are pumped up about going head to head with the Philadelphia Phillies in the World Series, starting today.
This is The Phillies Phanatic...the mascot of the Philadelphia Phillies. I don't have a clue what he really is, as in terms of an animal. He has a cylinder beak with a tongue that sticks out. The Phanatic replaced a pair of siblings dressed in 18th century garb named "Philadelphia Phil and Philadelphia Phillis". He is a legend as far as mascots go....right behind the San Diego Chicken.
So, now that you have met the Mascots....Let the games begin!
