I just have some questions for you.

Why is your mascot a bobcat?

Don’t bobcats eat snakes?

Isn’t a diamondback a snake?

Why does your mascot eat you?

Isn’t this kind of like the Mariners creating a mascot named Scurvy the Liver Spot?

Just asking.

    Paul, I wasn’t sure whether or not bobcats eat snakes. So I looked it up and found this video, which I believe will answer the question definitively.

  2. Paul Moro says:

    The disparity between the “your ass is mine” claw swipes and the “please, please don’t bite me” jumps are pretty damned funny.

    And you now what else is funny? The narrator appears to think that this act of bloody violence is cute. What’s with the sound effects?

  3. Toying with the diamondback. That bobcat reminds me of Todd Helton.

    Yeah, clearly bobcats don’t eat snakes. Instead, “In the ulimate show of superiority, they leave them to rot in the desert sun.” To the sensuous sounds of the Spanish guitar, no less.

    Clearly, the D-Backs need a new mascot. Maybe a desert rat. Snakes eat rats!

  5. According to the website of the state of Massachusetts (I kid you not), bobcats do eat snakes:

    “They most commonly prey on medium sized animals such as rabbits and hares but will eat mice, squirrels, skunk, opossum, muskrat, birds, snakes, and other available items.”

    Found it here: http://www.mass.gov/dfwele/dfw/dfw_bobcat.htm

    You know what else I learned on my proud state’s website? That we have a state muffin. And it is a corn muffin.

  7. Is it specifically a Dunkin Donuts corn muffin?
