He's Tall, He's Tan, He's Spartacat


Meet Spartacat, the "Ambassador of Fun". He's 7ft tall and weighs 156 kg. He can't talk, but he sure knows how to write. I know he looks kind of goofy with that big grin and the fact that he's missing a couple of teeth. But since he's a hockey mascot, it only makes sense that he'd be getting into the rough and tumble stuff as well.

One thing that makes Spartacat cooler than all of the other ones? He has a MySpace Page. And he likes the Foo Fighters, see how scene he is? Apparently he's 25 years old and he made his home debut in 1992 against the Montreal Canadiens.

It makes sense for the Senators to have a lion as a mascot since they have that whole Spartan theme going on. I still don't know what that has to do with Senators but I'm going with it. Sparty's very recognizable in the Ottawa area with all of the charity events and other special shindigs he shows up at. Normally I can't stand mascots but I adore this l'il guy because he appears to be just as snarky as me.

According to his site on NHL.com, his favourite bands are Cat Stevens and White Lion and The Stray Cats and his favourite movie is The Lion King.

His biggest rival of course is of the Toronto Maple Leafs. He has his own fan club for kids and his own collection of videos on the Sens website. Apparently he's quite the ladies man, and if you were hoping to catch his attention, he likes people who read as he is an active member of the "Read to Suceed" campaign.

You guys know I love him, but apparently, some people like him ALOT.

Woah. Spartacat's one hardcore mascot.

You gotta love a mascot willing to discuss his sexuality.

Sherry said...

Hey, he mind as well, or else everybody's going to think he's gay like Youppi, who is incidentally now Montreal's mascot.

Jordi said...

Hey! Youppi can be flaming gay and people will still like him! To an extent though. Maybe there'll be less male fans taking pictures with him...

That's the great thing about Montreal . . . your mascot can be flaming gay and that just makes people love him more.
