We, SB Nation, owe you an apology. We have neglected one of the most important aspect of professional soccer and have done as disservice to you, our readers, as a result. So now we must remedy thing and make you a promise: MORE MASCOTS.
Mascots are underratedly important to clubs, and also amazing so we will now give them their due, beginning with the finest mascot in all of the Premier League -- Crystal Palace's Pete the Eagle.
The important thing to know about Pete the Eagle is he wears sunglasses. Always.
If Pete the Eagle is on the pitch, he's wearing sunglasses. If Pete the Eagle is inside, he's wearing sunglasses. And if Pete the Eagle is going to sleep with wife Alice, he's wearing sunglasses.
Because people who wear sunglasses are cool. Everyone knows that.
