Mascotspotting: Sunderland AFC – Samson and Delilah

Written by World Wide Wolfie on November 25th, 2010

The Black Cat’s logically chose cats – who are black – for the mascots, resulting in the mythically unattractive Samson and Delilah.
Samson and Delilah the Sunderland AFC mascots
Name: Samson and Delilah

DoB: unknown

Pun Value: 0

Charm: 4

Machismo: 4

Weirdness factor: 8

Overall mascotspotter rating: 4

Trivia: The mascots are (not obviously, even when you look close up) black cats, to reflect Sunderland’s nickname – apparently derived from the occasion when one of the aforementioned creatures wandered into the dressing room before a 3-1 victory over Bury in 1909.  Honestly, other than that, I can’t find any information about these elusive creatures so if you have any amusing S&D stories, please do share.

    Good on you, Emma. The death of the school lbrraiy would be a dreadful, dreadful thing. As for phonics, I’m not qualified either but I do see some value in them, too. When used in combo with lots of other methods, etc. And reading for pleasure is THE THING WE MUSTN’T FORGET!!

    I love how nobody seems to unndestard that the nicotine isn’t the main problem. It’s the tar and the other harmful chemicals. Obviously nicotine can cause things over years of abuse, but if I smoke real cigarettes twenty times a day? — wouldn’t you thing I’d rather smoke just nicotine and water instead twenty times a day? Wouldn’t you think that would be a bit healthier than tar?
