[BLEEP] YOU, MASCOT! Herky the Hawk

Is there anything more pathetic than a mascot dressed up as a football player? Well how about the name of a mascot? This is Herky the Hawk. And no, his mama didn't name him that . That distinction goes to John Franklin. Herky is supposed to be a shortened version of Hercules. Yeah, I'm not seeing it either. Herky's frame looks more like the Charles Atlas "before" pictures. Not quite as inspiring as his creators expected.
Herky looks pathetic in that uniform, doesn't he? He looks more chicken hawk than an actual hawk. Heck, Tony Hawk looks more intimidating than Herky here. Feel free to put on some shoulder pads there, Herky. At least it would look like he was trying.

(Apologies as usual to Matthew Gasteier)
