You mean this isn’t an early April Fool’s joke?

When I saw Baseball Digest’s report about the Richmond Flying Squirrels’ new mascot, I thought it was an April Fool’s joke.

The Richmond Flying Squirrels (Class AA; Eastern League) unveiled their new acorn-inspired mascot Zinger, as the inflatable acorn will join the face of the franchise, Nutzy, in all aspects of fan entertainment and community involvement going forward.

A quick trip to the Squirrels’ website proved that the new mascot is real.

I can’t quite decide if I think making someone dress up in an inflatable acorn suit is

  • funny
  • stupid or
  • cruel & unusual punishment.

What do you think of Zinger? (be sure to click the links and check out the pictures before you answer)
