Theme Day: Mystery Object

SDP  10-1-11
In the City Daily Photo community, it's theme day! And, this month's theme is 'mystery object'. This is Raymond, the Tampa Bay Rays mascot. Similar to the Phillie Phanatic, no one really knows what Raymond is. He's a large, fuzzy, cute, blue mystery. For those of you who follow Major League Baseball, you'll notice Raymond is sporting the classic Rays jersey from years gone by when the team was known as the Devil Rays. Well, the 'Devil' was dropped...the manta ray disappeared...and now the 'Rays' are implied to be rays of sunshine. And, the Rays certainly have shined upon the Tampa Bay area this year with a storybook finish on the last day of the regular season to become a wild card in the playoffs. Raymond the blue mystery blob certainly has something to cheer about. Go Rays!  Click here to view thumbnails for all participants

I take it you are a fan! I like the "Devil Rays" name best. Raymond looks just a bit like a little devil, hisself! :-)

SRQ, how could you do this? And before the scabs from the Sox' disastrous end have healed?

I didnt know the Rays was for sunshine. They did what needed to be done, splitting in Texas. I want the Rangers to win, but I dont want the Rays to lose. My Cards got a split also.
