22 Days Until the Atlanta Hawks’ Season

Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

We are counting down the days until the Hawks’ season-opener in Dallas by giving you 50 things to be excited about this year. With 22 days left, today’s reason is…

Harry The Hawk

Come on, who doesn’t love Harry?

The Hawks’ primary mascot will be back again this season, bringing his enthusiastic, quirky and always fun attitude to Philips Arena.

As always, Harry will have many different “skits” prepared for the fans during timeouts, which are always entertaining.  Last year we met his family, saw him lose to a kid in musical chairs, do the moonwalk and chase opposing fans out of the building.  What will Harry do this season?  Only time will tell.

In addition, we love Harry’s interaction with the fans.  During the game you’ll often find him mingling about the crowd, interacting with fans and spectators.  He’s also well-known for being spotted on the Kiss Cam, and we’ll probably see that again this season.

Wherever Harry is, you know it’s going to be a good time!
