The New York Yankees Need a Mascot, and I’m Here to Help

Of all the trappings and traditions of pro sports, mascots are among the weirdest ones. They don’t get the team hyped, since athletes and coaches don’t need the help. They don’t really get fans involved, because most mascot antics distract them from the game. Shit, half the time the mascot isn’t even vaguely related to the team its representing (looking at you, Phillie Phanatic).

That said, the New York Yankees, arguably the most iconic franchise in the entire world, don’t have a mascot. I decided to change that. Hit the jump to meet him!

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Greeny!

I tried to think of something both iconic and representative of the Yankees franchise as a whole – a giant sum of cash haphazardly thrown into a pile and given a Yankees hat fits the bill perfectly. Ball’s in your court, Steinbrenner family: let’s make this a reality.
