Return Of The Mascot Power Rankings: The Revenge Of Mr. Testicles


Don’t you people understand? All Senhor Testiculo wants is to be loved.

Yes, Brazil has a mascot named Senhor Testiculo, or in English, Mr. Testicles. His main job is to roam from town to town reminding men to check their scrotum for signs of testicular cancer, but he also shows up at soccer matches and all other manner of sporting events — even if those events involve children.

I guess that’s a Brazilian thing. I just don’t think this would fly in Nebraska.

“Honey, get closer to the testicles — I need to get all three of you in the frame. No, closer. Hug the balls, dear. Now in this one, give Mr. Testicles a kiss. Hold it … ”

Senhor Testiculo is the lucky winner of the No. 1 slot in this month’s Mascot Power Rankings — a rundown of the most notable carpet-based creatures in sports and beyond. This is a feature I started back at NBC Sports, until certain court orders forced it into hiatus. I would have been wrestled to the ground by NBC security and tased if I had tried to post Mr. Balls, here.

If you spot a mascot doing something notable, like bothering children, send descriptions and/or photos to Rick@SportsGrid.com. OK, here we go:



  • Jerry Baustian

    Half of all children have testicles. Some percentage of them may someday contract testicular cancer. Why is breast cancer awareness okay and even admirable, but not testicular cancer?

  • Rick Chandler

    Testicular cancer awareness is great. But do you see any giant breasts posing with children?

  • Jerry Baustian

    Children love breasts. I don’t expect them to love testicles in quite the same way.
