In normal times, our mascots are here to entertain. They are here to dance and jump and run and prank and maybe engage in a little fraud. They are generally the mirthful light in our lives.
But these are not exactly normal times. So Blooper, the Braves mascot, did the most unexpected thing: He tutored kids in math. Seriously.

Frankly, I don't think I was ever prepared to see a mascot take the square root of anything. Now I'm just wondering when the Phanatic will start teaching kids about the symbolism in "Moby Dick."
