The Sixers have decided to retire Hip Hop the rabbit and they're leaving his replacement up to us...kind of.
The most creative minds at the Seventy Sixers have offered us Big Ben, B. Franklin Dogg (yes, with two g's), and Phil E. Moose as optional replacements.
Ben Franklin's connection to '76 is obvious - and overdone - although he never responded to the name of London's famed clocktower, nor had any relation. B. Franklin Dogg's connection is in the dog's namesake only. But Phil E. Moose, a moose? I don't get it. I feel like the marketing team at the Seventy Sixers might already made up their minds and decided to hand our basketball team over to Ben Franklin by offering us two terrible alternatives.
I mean really, a moose. I actually had to look it up: The moose's closest modern natural habitat is upstate New York. Way upstate.
Come on guys.
