In the spirit of Randall Simon, I think we've all wanted to (or actually gone ahead and done) something nasty to a mascot.

I went to see a game in Montreal once, and decided not to wear my trademark cap. Of course, the ONE night I go hatless (p.s. I'm bald), none other than Youppi comes up to me, puts me in a headlock and rubs my bald head, much to the amusement of the small but easily amused crowd at the Big O. On the bright side, I finally got on a ballpark scoreboard for once in my life. On the down side, I wanted to lay waste to that orange-suited clown. Someday, Youppi. The clock is ticking.

Leave Youppi! alone, Jays fan!

Not baseball related, but at a Raptors-Nets pre-season game back in November at the ACC the Rap-tor mascot was messing around/dancing on top of a garbage can. He slipped and completely crotched himself, then fell into our row. A couple of the boys and I started mock beating him to the delight of the entire crowd.

The mascot spent the rest of the fourth quarter on one knee underneath the basket on the baseline, casually rubbing his groin area.

I spent the 1987-88 season as the mascot for Colorado Rangers of the International Hockey League. I was a drunken big black crow with big yellow feet. I got punched, kicked, propositioned, spit on, goosed, grabbed and ridiculed. It may have been the best job I ever had. I got fired at the end of the season when I told Rep. Pat Schroeder that I gave good beak.
