Giants, Mariners mascots make an NFC Championship bet (Kaepernicking & Skittles are involved)

You may have heard they've got an American football game of some import happening in Seattle this Sunday. Both quarterbacks involved have baseball backgrounds (as do the ones playing the game in Denver), but enough about humans. The real question is: How are those in the mascot world preparing for the game?

I assume 49ers mascot Sourdough Sam and Seahawks mascot Blitz are deep in playbook study at this point, but their MLB counterparts decided to make a bet based on the outcome of the NFC Championship Game. If Seattle wins, Giants mascot Lou Seal will have to consume a large amount of Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch's good luck candy:

While if San Francisco wins, Mariners mascot the Mariner Moose will have to take a picture doing Niners QB Colin Kaepernick's famed celebratory pose:

Whatever the game's outcome, the real winners will be anyone who enjoys amusing mascot photos.
