If the #RedSox were ever going to get into the giant headed mascots racing thing, who should their 3 former players be? @45PedroMartinez for sure. Or should they be some other non-baseball figures? Like the cast of Cheers, etc?#WBZ pic.twitter.com/xgNmI0r0Yl

GREAT question here, Joe. Now lets not just leave this to former Red Sox players though; thats too narrow. While I get what Joe is saying about Cheers, I am throwing that idea in the trash, respectfully of course. So any former Sox player or famous Bostonian is up for grabs in this poll. Here are some of the top Boston guys that I think would be A+ giant headed mascots
- Trot Nixon
I cannot picture anything funnier than one of those abominations running around Fenway with the dirtiest gigantic hat ever made.
- Kevin Youkilis
Youk would probably be the most easily recognizable giant headed mascot in the game with a 3 foot tall goatee.
- Nomar Garciaparra
Once the sports book opens at the Wynn in Everett (lets go Mayor Walsh) I would HAMMER the moneyline on Nomah winning this race 5 nights a week.
- Pedro Martinez
He would have a slight disadvantage though because a giant headed Pedro mascot would need to be taped to a poll as part of the costume.
- Luis Tiant
El Tiante with a cigar the size of a pool noodle would be a dark horse candidate in every race.
- Bill Burr
The angriest giant headed mascot you’ll ever see. Would never win shit because he is a comedian, not a track star, but Old Billy Red Balls would be a fan favorite for sure.
- Ben Affleck/Matt Damon
They can’t have one without the other. Would be required they run the race as a three legged man.
- Doug Flutie
The man is a damn legend. Forget the hail mary TD, the guy completed a drop kick in a live NFL game. My family literally has a framed picture of that shit in the basement. True story.
Who ya got? Tweet your best answers to me @The300sBoston so I can debate you on mascots instead of being productive in the cube.
