I'll weigh in. I think we should have an egg. A good egg. I found a replacement egg, and rode it near 28 hours to drop off and return to the 'casa. And I put my name on the egg. And others did, too. We named the egg "Cosmo". That being said, Cosmo wasn't "Precious," but Cosmo was Cosmo.
In my very humble opinion, I like the North American mascot. I suppose in light of events I don't favor folks not necessarily appreciative of tag history to grab and well, not tag.
But perhaps there are compelling reasons for the recent non-tag which will become apparent as time comes to pass. I hope all are ok.
That being said, I vote mascot. And I vote egg. Glad to help put another egg in play. . ..
