Canadiens mascot Youppi! loses bet, posts sad pictures (Photo)


Sad Youppi! will probably never become a meme like Sad Keanu or Sad Affleck Batman, but there is still considerable power in these images of the former Expos and current Habs mascot posing sadly while wearing a New York Rangers jersey.

Wait, why is a Habs mascot wearing a New York Rangers jersey? Well he lost a bet with Jimmy Fallon over the Canadiens-Rangers series. The Habs couldn’t get it done and Youppi! was forced to don the Rangers gear and take pictures of himself.

These photos should hang in a museum somewhere. A Musuem of Ultimate Sadness.

How do we bring back Youppi! from the brink of the abyss? Maybe set him up on a date with Mrs. Met. Come on New York, you owe Youppi! one. Mr. Met, you need to take one for the team. Don’t worry, Youppi! won’t try anything funny. He’s not Bernie Brewer, for gosh sakes.
