Bower brought up an interesting point about experiences in this game. And I’ll be the first to admit… the longer your in this game the crazier things do happen…
For instance, a club I was with had a contest about picking a mascot. So, a lot of entries came in, along with costumes and stuff… but the one that won was a hot dog… yep a hot dog. To this day I still can’t figure that one out.
Anyway, as it came down… a local provision company had interests in the club, money wise, and it was a way to promote their products and name. They even provided the costume and some guy to wear it.
The thing resembled a hot dot in a bun. The guy wore the hot dog and then wrapped Himself in a jacket like thing… which was the bun. Kind of stupid if you asked me… but… nobody did… so off and running we went.
On opening day the sponsor (provision company) had all kinds of photographers there and in front of our dugout looked like a Oscar night in Hollywood. And everything was going smoothly… just like clockwork… until the hot dog sat down.
When the mascot …hot dog… sat down… the wiener between his legs shot straight up and pointed right at dugout ceiling. Of course none of this went unnoticed by the boys with the flashbulbs…… click…click… click.
In the morning paper the next day… in the sports section… it did look rather funny. And everyone did their best not to laugh… especially to the sponsor’s face. But what really ticked the sponsors off was when one of our guys was asked what he thought of the picture. Upon which he responded… “Well, the wiener sticking straight up between his legs wasn’t all that bad… until somebody pointed out where he put the mustard!”
Anybody have stuff happen to them???
