The good news is that the Youppi no longer is exists in baseball because of the Expos move to Washington.
The bad news is that it existed. And it continues to exist for the Montreal Canadiens.
Youppi can be translated as the French world for "yippee" or "hooray!" Its a decent name, but when one gets a look at, they must question everything about it.
First of all, who could have come up with this? It is the biggest, blobbiest, brightest, and ugliest of any MLB mascot ever. Its bright orange, so it could have easily been distracting to players on the baseball field.
Additionally, it was the first mascot to be thrown out of a game, as that happened in 1989 upon an in-game complaint from Tommy Lasorda.
Youppi has to be number one on the list because it fits all of the criteria flawlessly.
It is bizarre. There is no way of knowing what it represents on sight, if it represents anything.
It looks stupid.
It certainly must have scared its fair share of children.
And Youppi probably has made, and continues to make plenty of unsuspecting fans uncomfortable.
