The Nats already have a regular Screech mascot. They also have four Giant President mascots. But you can never have too many mascots, which is why ‘Air Screech’ was introduced to a rapt audience on Thursday night.
Update: Now there’s video, via Let Teddy Win. Yay! Weird. So, so weird.
As for the fans who saw the unveiling in person, well, those on Twitter seemed pretty excited.
Over the PA: "Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome Air Screech." Perhaps a low point for the franchise, or maybe the sport itself.
Air Screech just happened. Except we're all just pretending it did not. Someone had to have lost a bet to get in that sad sack of a costume.
I hope this will be Air Screech's last appearance at #NATS Park. Awful
He's baaaaaaaccckkk! Air screech blows back on field, literally, during stretch. kill me now. #NATS
Air screech...really!? @Nationals
Air Screech is now walking around and poking its beak at people. This is just strange. #Nats
