While the sport of baseball may be popular all around the world, to much of the world, it's just not important. Indeed, Lil Slugger Trundle very much gives me the impression of stamping good ol' All-American-ness onto the game, because as popular as it is around the world, no country gets as excited about baseball as the United States. With Japan maybe being a close second. American football is most definitely another such sport, because most of the world calls a completely different sport "Football", one that we here in North America call "Soccer".
Whereas, Pool Party Ziggs is something everyone can appreciate. And Battle Bunny Riven? Who wouldn't like to see a rather masculine lass getting angry at being forced into a bunny suit and thrashing everyone that tries to ogle her?
And Arcade Sona is, like, the epitome of silliness that every LoL player can enjoy. Because we're all here, playing VIDEO GAMES! Heheh.
Also, there's Unprepared Garen.
THIS SKIN MUST HAPPEN.
