So we were sitting here trying to come up with some way to blame the delay in announcing the results on the early onset of Daylight Savings Time when we realized, hey, we could just as easily go ahead and announce the results. So here are our choices for the best entries in our challenge to Create a mascot for a Woot sports team:
First prize - $100
shan24 - The Woot-Off Phanatic
Hit me with your quantity-remaining stick!
Second prize - $50
KMA2 - Thumb Down
Weird how this arena appears to be lit from below, but we like it anyway.
Third prize - $20
BionicBeefpile - First Sucker
So this is what he looks like...
plinth - Bandalero Carrots
It took 30 years, but the Frito Bandito finally found a new job.
intaglio - Doomed to Flailure
This is one blow-up doll we can show in polite company.
z144man - Mr. Carrot & Mrs. Broccoli
We hope Mr. Broccoli doesn't look at these forums.
gwp - Uh, I Don't Know, Let's Call Him "Giant Ken Jennings Head Man"
As if you could actually make a cat run in a straight line, or do anything else you wanted it to.
Champions' Championship Champion
tgentry - Mascot of the Rad Dunk
We weren't that thrilled that this one was based on a winning entry from our last "mascot" contest, but our past winners had no such qualms.
Sometimes, even when we feel like somebody is making a naked grab for the Monkey Prize,
their work is so overwhelmingly awful, so laughably misguided, so
redolent of Monkey musk that we simply must "honor" it. So
congratulations, froznwrage - your mysteriously-titled "Walrus the Manatee" did the job you hired him to do:
That's the game, people. If you created a money-winning entry, please email your Paypal info to firstname.lastname@example.org. Monkey Prize winner, send your mailing address to the same. Honorable Mentioneers may use coupon code HONMEN-FS for free shipping on a future order. Until
next time, remember: somewhere inside that oversized fuzzy mascot
costume, there's a real human being with hopes and desires and
emotions. So be careful if they want to hug your kids.
