Barrie Colts’ Mascots Have Competition!
#HerotheHedgehog Has Got The Moves
The Barrie Colts have two pretty cool mascots: Charlie Horse and Charlie Colt.
At Kool FM, we LOVE our hometown mascots. But what if we told you that these two mascots had competition from across the pond? I’m not horsin’ around.
Hero the Hedgehog, the official mascot of the 2017 IAAF World Championships in London, England has had crowds in stitches for the past week. His list of skills includes:
Somersaults. So. Many. Somersaults.
OOOF! That’s got to hurt! Could Hero the Hedgehog be the unsung star of @IAAFWorldChamps #London2017? pic.twitter.com/tfEF0fGIxc

Now, the Barrie Colts pre-season opener is Monday, September 4th against the Owen Sound Attack, so our two beloved mascots have a few weeks to prepare themselves for competition.
