My name is Ranky and I’m the new face of Ranker, you’ll be hearing from me a lot on this blog and on twitter. I know you guys already know some facts about me but what you may not know is that I take being a mascot very seriously. It’s not just a job it’s a lifestyle.
I feel like mascots have been pushed aside and haven’t gotten the respect they deserve. We’re more than just an adorable face! I don’t want to get all political but I’m passionate about my role and about my fellow mascots. See, I’m a huge sports fan and I really love Sportscenter those commercials crack me up! While I was at the Ranker office this video was brought to my attention:
That’s the Hilltopper and boy, if you want to have a wild night give that guy a call. Even though Hilltopper has since given up the life, I gotta say this video made me a little annoyed, yeah it was all in good fun and those guys at Sportscenter are awesome, but mascot bathroom rights are no joke. It’s really hard to hold it when you’ve got a tiny bladder like I do.
So, I’ve decided to give mascots a voice, you should expect to hear from me quite often sounding off about this or that, talking about my favorite lists. I like to write and memorize lists…just like that guy from Criminal Minds…did you see that episode? It was on last week the one about the Zodiac killer? Wasn’t it so good? Anyway…
It was very nice to e-meet you!
