Mascots are awesome! We know what they do at sporting events, but as a sports fan we're out of the loop on a lot about the life of a mascot. The mystery is "how do you become a mascot?" Which is a great question; there's a different answer for both college and professional levels. You can even receive a free education for being a college mascot!
There is much preparation for the season (Training, diet, dance class, etc.), Mascots work throughout the year, long after their respective team's seasons are over. We take a look inside the "Celebrity Mascot Games" YES there is an All-Star game for mascots.
We sat down with former pro mascots to find out why being a mascot is more than just putting on a costume and dancing. We answered a lot of questions fans may have about the mascot world.
