25. Stinger (Columbus Blue Jackets)
Standing at 6-feet-9 inches tall, Stinger is the largest yellow jacket known to mankind. Columbus designed Stinger to be yellow and green because when the colors are combined they create blue. The Columbus Blue Jackets wanted their mascot to be a “bug with attitude.” This bug has plenty of attitude.
Everyone knows the pain of being stung by a bee. Imagine being stung by a yellow jacket that should be playing in the National Basketball Association. Unlike regular bees, yellow jackets have a smooth stinger, which allows them to sting multiple times.
The downfall of Stinger’s wrath in a bar fight is someone would have to leave a door or window open for him to enter the bar. Unless you are allergic to bees, like Thomas Jay, you would really just want to avoid being stung. Its more a nuisance than a threat.
Columbus’ favorite yellow jacket is a very intelligent insect. He graduated with honors at Georgia Tech. He has a bright future if the mascot thing doesn’t work out. A bar fight may not be the best way to max out his potential.
