Did you hear? The Sixers are getting a new mascot! Yeah, for some reason they decided not to bring back their old mascot, this thing that looks like a roid-raged cross between Bugs Bunny and Chuck E. Cheese, for the new season. Can’t imagine why. Nevertheless, it’s now up to fans to vote for the team’s new icon, and we implore you: vote Franklin!
Sure, you could vote for B. Frank’s dog (the aptly named B. Franklin Dogg) or…a moose…but why wouldn’t you want Penn’s illustrious founder to be the new face of Philly’s beloved basketball team? Just look at that dashing red suit, that plum nose, that big hearty belly…wait a second, this looks familiar…Santa? Is that you? Guys, Santa Clause could be the new Sixers mascot! Gooooooooooo SANTA!!!
