Reporter discovers "the dog's life" of mascoting
Posted by MelSkunk (Melissa Drake) on Wed 27 Nov 2002 - 13:57
Many 'suiters wish those smarmy reporters would step inside the big, foam head and see what hot, hard work it is. Seth Stern has stepped up to the challenge and decided to walk a mile in another man's large, cartoon paws. It takes style and grace to pull off being a floppy eared canine, and our reporter friend goes through the full mascot bootcamp with sporting pros before trying out his skills in front of the crowd. "I'm actually disappointed that there's no one else to entertain", he notes as he finished up his last assignment in Mascot U, a Halloween parade.

I'm glad you like it :) I'm an old time mascoter, so I always love positive press. It's a hot, smelly, tireing, prone-to-abuse, wonderful job and I wish I was doing it again.
