Voting for the first round of the “Mascot Madness” tournament ends tomorrow night at 11:59 p.m., and Bolt is locked up in a tight race with Clearwater’s mascot, Phinley.
You can vote up to 25 times for Bolt, so be sure to help Bolt live up to the title of “everyone’s favorite mascot.”
If Bolt advances to the second round, the opponent will be either Muddy the Mudcat (Carolina Mudcats) or Strike the Sasquatch (Northwest Arkansas Naturals).
Phinley has proven to be quite a challenge, and the vote is close. Be sure to help Bolt move on to round two!
Second chances do not come around often. For Dash mascot Bolt, a second chance has arrived.
Another tournament is here, and it involves 64 mascots within minor league baseball.
Our goal is to help Bolt take the crown. Please vote for Bolt in the first round against Clearwater Threshers mascot Phinley by clicking the link at the top of the page.
We’ll leave you with this–Bolt’s biography. It is tremendous:
“Since my arrival in 2009, I’ve taken Winston-Salem by storm. My deceptive speed and electric personality make me the perfect mascot for the Dash. I am neither bear, nor dog, nor bear-dog, but rather a Bleacher Creature (Bleacherus creaturus). My notable achievements include most belly shakes in one minute (423); most high-fours in a single game (3,202,009); and a more ignominious distinction — a 210-game losing streak in Musical Chairs. I provide our fans with high-voltage entertainment, and, just like the dash in the city’s name links two proud communities, I bring people together with the greatest gift of all: laughter.”
Vote for Bolt!
You crushed poor Wilbur. It was dominant.
Today, it’s round two, and a trip to the Final Four is on the line. The assignment is not any easier. In fact, this may be more of a challenge, because Bolt’s opponent is the defending “Mascot Madness” champion–Webster University’s Gorlok.
I hope you all had a great weekend. I apologize for being a little late with this post, but it is time for a mascot breakdown. After pummeling Wilbur from the University of Arizona in round one, everyone’s favorite mascot Bolt is back in Mascot Madness action tomorrow against the Gorlok from Webster University. This is the matchup of the tournament so far, and here’s why:
TALE OF THE TAPE
Bolt: Larger than life
Gorlok: 300 picas
Bolt: Just a minute
Gorlok: two-dimensional items have little weight
Bolt: Bleacher Creature (Bleacherus creaturus)
Gorlok: It has the paws of a speeding cheetah, the horns of a fierce buffalo, and the face of a dependable Saint Bernard.
