Picking a mascot is a tricky thing to do. You want the animal you chose to symbolize something powerful, something your fans can get behind. You want it to exude strength and pride. Animals from the top of the food chain are usually a popular choice of mascot. Take the Jaguars for example.
While we acknowledge the importance of every animal to the Earth and its eco-system, we wouldn’t recommend opting for a tiny little bird to serve as a mascot. Let alone when you play against a team whose mascot could literally eat yours.
There is nothing like gloat to summon the right creative muse. Deflategate has certainly inspired some fans to write some of the funniest signs to grace the bleachers. This orange-haired fan and his sign are just one example of that.
Whether the deflated balls were intentional or not, one thing is for sure — the fans will keep making the most of it for years to come.
Tell Jimmy I Said Hi
Let's take a second to talk about something very important — Jimmy Garoppolo's smile. That heaven-sent gift to mankind did not go unnoticed by the two girls holding up this sign. Hoping to get a glance or even a flash of a smile from their idol, they put together a sign that is sure to catch his eye.
And while we're at it, we would also like to note that Jimmy is 6' 2", has the physique of a Greek god, and eyes that would look great by a candlelit dinner. If he ever gets tired of playing football, he would do well to start a modeling career.
A Good Day
There is so much going on in this picture that we didn't even need the sign to do a double-take on it. Sure, the sign has iאs humor, proudly held up to encourage the Rams' handsome quarterback, Jared Goff. But there are also a few other things worth mentioning.
First, the watermelon hats. How great are those? Then, there is the guy on the left who went all the way with proper fan attire and used cheerleader pom-poms to create some event-worthy hair. Props on the ingenuity!
Riddle Me This
There is nothing like a good word puzzle to stimulate your mind. This must be why people like emojis so much. Being able to use subtle profanity is just an added bonus.
Just like in this sign right here lashing out on the NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell. We are sure that whatever Goodell did wasn't personal or directed at the fan in the picture, but he sure didn't feel like it.
