Mascot Soccer!

Woo-hoo! Last night's Crew game hosted my most favorite half-time event: Mascot Soccer.

Each year, the Crew rounds up some of the areas best Mascots and forces them to hang outside before the game in sweltering heat while scads of screaming kids swarm around them for a picture.

Joe managed to snap a couple pictures of Mary before it was time for them to go to their seats. You know...can't miss pre-game warm up or anything. As an aside, we have two season tickets and Joe alternates which girl goes with him to the game. The lure of dippin dots is very strong for my children. They are quite content to sit through the whole game if they have a bowl of icey goodness to entertain them.

Back to the mascots.

Here is Mary with either Gravy or Biscuit...don't know which is which:
Biscuit or Gravy or whoever it is is from one of Mary's favorite restaurants, Bob Evans.
As a shout out to my childhood, Joe managed to get Mary with the penultimate mascot, Scooby.

And because you haven't really lived until you have watched Mascot Soccer, Joe took a snippet of video. Don't tell the people in the Ohio State football department, but it appears that Brutus might have a talent for the Beautiful Game.

For some reason I could really go for a Frosty right now.
