Ever wonder how sports teams decide on the look for their clubs mascot? Certainly one way is to invest thousands of dollars into market research trying to find that right look.
Another far less expensive way is to just spend a week in Hollywood.
Trust me, you’d be surprised just how many of your favorite, furry sideline cheer-meister’s have been inspired by the looks of today's celebrities and pseudo personalities.
See for yourself.
