Newcastle have a new superhero mascot costume

Newcastle United are always looking for ways to make some extra cash, or 'increase revenue streams' as people who wear suits would say, so now you can buy a really weird fancy dress costume from their shop.

I actually think this is genuinely quite funny, and if a few people buy the costume, priced at £49.99 then that's fair enough.  And if it turns out he's a real person, there's a 99% chance that he'd have more idea what's going on in football than Kevin Keegan anyway so no harm done.  In fact I'm pretty sure that this is what Keegan sees when he looks in a mirror.
