Today’s mascot is a human. Usually, I am not a fan of this, because humans are just not as interesting as magical human-like animals. But this guy is more than your typical human- he is James Bond meets mascot. Look at all of his high-tech gear! Though, I’m not sure the secret agent part is true, because I did find this list of his powers with a Google search.
Sky has more of a history than most mascots– he is the youngest of 6 siblings, having only sisters. He grew up playing basketball with them, and was very sad when they all went off to college, and he had nobody to play basketball with anymore (I feel ya there, Sky. Suddenly being an “only child” sucks). So he decided it was time to join the WNBA.
This is a very cute story and all, but just to make it a little creepy, here are a few excerpts from the official WNBA mascot bio:
“He had been chasing ladies basketball for years”
“Sky Guy used his jet pack to travel around the globe in search of the best of ladies basketball.”
Okay, it’s really not that bad until you remove the word basketball. We all know of my gutter mind.
Yup, we see you’ve been benchin, braaa, but it’s pretty clear you skipped leg day.
