99% Invisible: La Mascotte [audio—18:44]

As baseball fans probably know, The Washington Nationals used to be the Montreal Expos. When the team packed up and left Canada in 2005, they left behind their name, their logo, their uniforms—and their mascot, Youppi!.

A fun piece on mascots from a great radio show.
