It's surprisingly rough being a mascot these days. Sure, they're the awesome side entertainment at sporting events, but that puts a heck of a lot of pressure on them.

Cue: mascot fails.

That's why we've scoped out 10 mascots who have done just that. But don't worry, they're all a-ok. Those costumes have tons of padding. Check 'em out below.
