Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Okay, I'm as big a Red Sox fan as the next guy -- if the guy next to me happens to be a Red Sox fan -- but what's the deal with these mascots? Seems to me that if you're going to invite U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, his wife and his 3-year-old granddaughter to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at Fenway, you trot out the reliably asexual Wally the Green Monster, not a couple of mascots that look vaguely, you know, tumescent.
