I came across the job posting for what looks like the Philadelphia 76ers Mascot position. The requirements are pretty minimal (High School Diploma, Acting and Performance Experience, Ability to Dance).
Regardless of who gets hired to play it, public reception for the new mascot ideas have been as cold as a Philadelphia February. 63% of over 1,300 voters answered "none of them", when asked for their favorite mascot by a recent CBSPhilly.com online poll.
They are very cryptic with their Job Description.
