Free Youppi!

Buried at the end of this article, is a little nugget about our furry friend to the north.
The Nationals also will leave behind a big, orange ball of fur in Canada.
Youppi, the Expos' mascot, will not be prowling the stands at RFK Stadium next
season. But he is, at least, expected to be gainfully employed.

"Youppi will live on in Quebec," Mr. Delorme said. "A
local corporation will end up with his rights."

I was holding out hope that they'd export him as a token of friendship with our sometimes-french-speaking friends. Oh well.

I guess we're doomed to have one of those god-awful NBA-esque mascots.
