In a surprise move by the Philadelphia 76ers organization, the team introduced their new mascot at their home opener on Wednesday night from the selection of three they had fans vote on during the 2011-12 season.
Phil E. Moose won in a landslide after Nick took the reins last year and really pushed for the antlers.
Okay, that's not true. At least the part about the Sixers unveiling a new mascot on Wednesday night. But there was at least one moose in the bulding.
It's Halloween and friend of the Level Aaron dressed up in a Phil E. Moose costume.
In case you need a refresher as to just who Phil E. Moose is as a person:
From the Phil E. Moose's bio:
One of the
most regal animals to roam the wild, Phil E. Moose certainly fits that
bill, standing tall as he represents the Sixers (he stands over
seven-feet tall in fact, with the antlers). In his youth, Phil E. Moose
would often be seen dunking a basketball with ease, aided by his great
height. Throughout his high school, collegiate and professional games,
Phil E. Moose was a scoring star, and was excited to learn he had been
"traded" to the 76ers in order to entertain fans during games at the
Wells Fargo Center.
We regret to inform you that we have no information on an actual Sixers mascot.

What a week it's been for Chris Christie.
After watching his top-seeded Cowboys be picked apart by Aaron Rodgers in the divisional round, and being passed over for a position in Donald Trump's administration, the New Jersey governer called Eagles fans "generally angry, awful people."
He can now add being torched by Former Pennsylvania governer Ed Rendell and Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney to that list.
"You understand how his approval rating is probably the lowest of any governer in the country," Rendell said.
(Three fire emojis).
"In retrospect, the governer's had a pretty rough couple years," Kenney said. "His presidential campaign crashed and burned, his bromance with the President-Elect didn't seem to go anywhere. I understand why he may be a little bitter or angry."

Ugh. Joel Embiid may not be perfect.
He may be buddies with Johnny Manziel, at least according to the former NFL hopeful turned party boy.
It all started when Manziel took to Twitter today to talk about doing a free autograph signing for the people of Texas.
The Twitter rant also included this strange line: "No lie.. I was a [bad word] in 2016 I'm just trying to be a good PERSON again#LostInTheSauce."
Hey, owning it is the first step to recovery, right?
Also, he knows how to get Twitter's attention:
After doing one Google search, there were reports of the pair hanging over the summer in LA. From Busted Coverage:
[Manziel] was tearing up the Warick LA lounge with his Los Angeles friends at a party that included Jerome Boateng from Bayern Munich, Kendra Wilkinson and Joel Embiid among others.
More to this as we learn it...
