In the pantheon of sports mascots is the noble lynx. A proud big-pawed feline that is often poorly represented. Not anymore. The Edmonton Oilers chose a Canadian Lynx as their new mascot, and it’s the best lynx mascot in sports history.
Go on, try to make jokes about Hunter. We’re waiting. Oh, you can’t? Is that because HUNTER IS SUCH A FRIGGIN’ BADASS?! Honestly, it’s flawless. I photoshopped Hunter’s head on a Canadian lynx’s body and outside of the colors being off it totally fits.
The quality of the Oilers’ lynx is really miles ahead of other sport lynxs.
