Can You Name All Of These Famous Mascots From Western New York?
We are super lucky to have a plethora of recognizable mascot stars all over the Buffalo area. Mascots are one of the best parts of going to see your favorite team (or in some cases, grab your favorite hot dog). They’re there to give you a high-five after a big play, or give you a hug when you’re bummed the other team scored. They’re your team’s #1 cheerleader, along with being a fierce protector - who else can get away with harassing the opponents while still looking stinking adorable?
