When your team is awful and you need a way to keep fans interested in what you are doing on the field, you can always count on a goofy mascot to lead the way. For the Oakland Raiders, it is going to be interesting to see how the fan base reacts to a new mascot that they are set to unveil.
The mascot will be named “The Raider Rusher” and there are really no words to explain it.
Think of a massive head sitting on a pair of legs and wearing a spiked helmet. That is exactly what The Raider Rusher has. The only thing that remotely resembles something you would see in the Black Hole are the spikes down the center of the mascot’s head.
Something tells me the die-hard Raiders fans won’t appreciate the new man in town.
ESPN’s Darren Rovell shared a photo of the new mascot on Sunday evening, so check it out below and have a laugh — I’m sure you will:
