Love it

Because the mall costume and the crooked politician Miss Piggy costume got sludge on them when the pipes burst at NVMC and couldn't be saved.

sea dragon defending the Island

I know he originally came with the Arena Ball Dragons, but I think Sparky is somehow appropriate. I figure he's a Sea Dragon, defending the Island, or something like that. But I'm more concerned with the Coliseum Issue, the Defense issue, and the Goaltending issue.
