El Paso, TX (KTSM) — A photo circulating the city via text message early Tuesday morning, may give insight to our new mascot. Then again, it may not.
The t-shirt design, with a “Property of El Paso Chihuahuas” logo, complete with a snarling Chihuahua and those familiar eyes we’ve grown to love over the past week, began circulating early Tuesday morning ahead of the 4:30 p.m. mascot announcement.
It isn’t uncommon, however, for branding companies to print up a few red herrings to throw the scent off in their big reveal. We’ll officially find out if the face behind the menacing eyes is a Chihuahua, a Desert Gator, Sun Dogs, Aardvark or Buckaroo in a ceremony this afternoon at 4:30 p.m. at the Plaza Theatre.
The event is closed to the public, however, MountainStar Sports has invited numerous city youth baseball teams to the unveiling, along with selected members of the press. Read more on the official announcement here.
We will update as more information becomes available.
