Put Me In Coach, I’m Ready To Play

Cute Overload headquarters are in the Bay Area so we’ve been cheering on the A’s and San Francisco Giants, natch.

Rooting for the Giants can only mean one thing: time to break out the Giants Rally Monkeh Mascot!

This Little Langur Gonzo has got the perfect orange and black color scheme going on. But he needs a name, People! So head over to the SF Zoo’s Facebookster page, and name away! I think it has to be Buster.Photos by San Francisco Zoo.

    What? No! You can’t make a Giants rally monkey when the Angels’ rally monkey originated in an Angels win against the Giants! This is poor form, sports fans!!!

  3. Bah, sorry for the double post, not sure how that happened. But double the ire!

  4. Hour and a half til first pitch. Vamos Gigantes.

    Buster it is. I will root for the Giants ’cause Hunter Pence,
    a former Phillie, is now in line for a possible Series ring, as
    is Raul Ibanez, now of the Yankees. Now there’s a Series –
    San Fran and NooYawk!

    Wait, you mean his name isn’t Gonzo?!?

  7. I’m thinking Willie, after the greatest SF Giant of them all.

  8. Go Tigers!

  9. Alas, my Rangers imploded spectacularly at the end of the season, so now I’m rooting for Not-the-Yankees.

    Also, you need a comma before “Coach.” Otherwise, little monkeh friend is asking to sit in the back of the plane, and who would want to do that?

  10. So that means you’re rooting for the Tigers! Go Tigers! :)
    Plus, we’re the only ones left with a cute cuddly mammal mascot…

  11. Cardinals fan sits here quietly, enjoying the cute. …ho, hum…. ;)

  12. This is true. You’re also the only ones left who are neither Yankees nor teams who beat us in the World Series. So… go Tigers, I suppose. Y’all are, like, grrreat. And Pudge played for you for a while. I like Pudge.

  13. It seems funny to me that a langur’s hair and skin completely change colour from youth to adult. Especially since that orange colour would seem to make them stand out really easily to predators when they are at their most vulnerable!

  14. Erm, the Say Hey Kid was a New York Giant before he was a SF Giant….
