David Raymond is a mascot visionary. Having played the Philly Phanatic for 15 years, he looked into the future of sports, and saw that it was mascot filled. David has become the industry leader in creating mascots from scratch, fixing preexisting characters, and training the next generation of mascot actors. On top of that, David heads the Mascot Hall of Fame, a place where trailblazers are honored for a lifetime of achievement. We discuss his years as the Philly Phanatic, the Hot Pants Patrol, and the candidates on this years Mascot Hall of Fame ballot!
Speaking of trailblazers, none is more important than the First mascot ever, The San Diego Chicken, Ted Giannoulas!
