The Dynamo completed their first year in Houston holding aloft the MLS Cup as league champions. Now the real work begins, choosing a mascot. Students from the Houston Art Institute submitted their designs for potential Dynamo mascots, and the winner should be announced soon with the mascot hopefully making his debut by the start of the Dynamo's season on April 8. Here's a quote from one of the artists, “It’s a privilege to be able to take on such an important task,” said Houston Art Institute student Arely Santos. “It’s been a few days since I’ve been able to get any sleep, but having the opportunity to work on something this unique makes it all worth it.” Honestly, I'm not superstoked about any of these but the Yosemite Sam-like Dynamo Joe is my favorite by default. We'll let you know when the winner is chosen.
