Joc Pederson, Braves mascot at Sanford Stadium

Atlanta Braves World Series champion Joc Pederson and Braves mascot Blooper are honored during a timeout during the first half of an NCAA college football game between Missouri and Georgia in Athens, Georgia, on Saturday, November 6, 2021. Georgia won 43 - 6.

With about 30 minutes until kick-off against Missouri on Saturday, the crowded Georgia football student section let out an overwhelming roar. Then the sound turned into a song as one of the many honored guests made his grand arrival.

Blooper, the Atlanta Braves’ corded mascot, walked out of the student area and was greeted with cheers and croons. Hairy Dawg joined Blooper, fresh off a Friday parade to celebrate the World Series champions.

The Braves’ mascot jumped around, taking pictures with fans and interacting with Hairy Dawg. He wore his red No. 0 Braves jersey before taking it off to reveal a white Hairy Dawg UGA jersey.
