OK, so I don’t know. But today I had a conversation with John Leach, the team’s director of events and entertainment, and he reiterated that the mascot is scheduled to be unveiled before the end of the season. Here’s what he had to say…..
“We are going to have a mascot. Obviously it’s not something you can just throw together in the last two months. There’s a lot that really goes into building that character, and the costume takes a long time to build. So we’re in the process of doing that now. We feel like we’ve got a good head of steam. The good news is we feel like we’re going to be in a position to debut the mascot before the season ends, which is something that I’m really looking forward to.”
There you have it.
