In the next step of their rebrand, the Washington Commanders announced the final two contenders for the team’s new mascot. It will either be a dog or a hog.
During the first quarter of Washington’s Week 3 game against the Eagles at FedEx Field, the team announced the final two options.
The dog and hog were chosen from four finalists, which also included a superhero and a historical figure. The finalists were determined via a fan vote on Washington’s website.
Fans can continue to vote on the team’s website with the winner announced during Washington’s Jan. 1 game against the Cleveland Browns. Interestingly enough, the Commanders are honoring “The Hogs” that day. Could that be a clue?
“The Hogs,” of course, is the nickname of Washington’s great offensive line from the 1980s and early 1990s, the glory years of the franchise.
