    Sports nightmares: What’s the scariest mascot

    Mascots entertain us at games, accept donation checks and sit in miniature versions on the beds of young fans.

    And sometimes, they’re creepy.

    Tonight on NewsWorks Tonight, Lizz Fiedler will tell us about a local mascot that’s been giving young fans a scare. But before we talk more about that, we wanted to put the question to you: who’s the scariest mascot?

    Maybe the Phantic’s belly-jiggling dance weirds you out. Maybe Hip-Hop is just far too muscle-y for your liking. Or maybe, your mascot fears extend beyond the region. Feed the Feed to tell us which mascot you’d like to see look a little friendlier, and listen to the show tonight at 6 for details on who’s scaring the kids.
