New Sixers ownership has ever-dyspepsic Philly fans hoping for all sorts of changes - including axing Hip-Hop.
Even if a league website calls him "the coolest mascot in the NBA."
This morning, WIP (94 FM) host Angelo Cataldi, appearing on CBS3, held up a bowl to illustrate what the big-eared bunny's next role should be: "Rabbit stew!" he bellowed.
"Lame and stale, like the mascot version of planking," wrote Comcast SportsNet's John Gonzalez, declaring even no replacement would be an improvement.
"Dresses like a criminal" and "freakish muscles" were among comments here at the office, although, in fairness, doesn't the big bunny deserve props for his acrobatic trampolining dunks (can Swoop even kick a field goal?) and for being a step up from his predecessor, a waddling blob called Big Shot?
