I have been promoting the idea of a Clipper mascot for years. One idea was “Clippy: The Seafaring Wonderdog.” Well, that idea only got some rolls of the eyes — and rightfully so. Yes, it is lame.
But this year, could there be a better mascot than Underdog??
The Clippers are back to their traditional role of perpetual underdogs. Maybe that role will help them steal a few extra wins when they’re taking too lightly.
Other than getting in touch with that role, not too much is happening on the Clipper front. A few guys have minor injuries, but it does not look like anyone key will be out for Friday’s opener.
