Billy the Marlin Reemerges as Rainbow-Colored Mutant Fish

Categories: Sports

A few weeks ago, we told you that Miami Marlins mascot Billy the Marlin would return with a new color scheme, and lamented, "Hopefully we don't have to worry about an 8-foot tall orange sports fish walking around the stadium."

Well, the new Billy is finally here, and its not quite as bad, and yet not much better.

Yes, Billy now sports a multi-colored fin. Come on, Riptide is all for homopunk fashion, but what looks like a rainbow Mohawk is a step too far.

And those pants? They look like something Gwen Stefani might wear during pregnancy (except she'd actually pull them off).

And, take it form someone who never wore school colors to Hurricane games during his fat phase, people fish with large waists should be careful with wearing orange tops or risk looking like a pumpkin.

It's almost hard to believe that the Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria made his money in art dealing. How is it possible that man whose made millions in art has absolutely no aesthetic taste?

I would have never guessed that Billy the Marlin is a swordswallower and by the looks of it he also enjoys stuffing penis up his anus.

The Wilton Manors Marlins would have been an excellent choice.

I can't believe Miami really did this to a MLB team.  Shame on you!  I thought it was a joke the first time the team colors were released.  So far the majority of comments have been against the new Marlin colors and Miami looked the other way and did it anyway.  Typical Miami behavior, selfish!!  Not gofish!  Change is not always a good thing.

Everybody hates everything about the new Marlins. Or alternatively, people just love to bitch about change.

Why are you blaming the city. If you read the local reaction online and in the media it's overwhelmingly negative. I'm up in Jacksonville and I've already seen the new cap twice.Blame the New York art dealer (Loria), not Miami.
