I was originally going to right an outrageous response to a blog entry that many of you may have read. You can find the entire entry HERE. If you don’t want to read the whole thing, basically the guy doesn’t like mascots. Now, the guy puts a disclaimer at the top saying he’s a huge Broncos fan and that sometimes you just need to complain. Duly noted. I’m not saying it didn’t ruffle my feathers and I understand that some people just don’t like mascots. So I was going to tear this guy apart (in a funny way) and maybe create a dialogue between us that people would find entertaining, but I decided that maybe he had some valid questions. So I decided I would answer them. Well, mainly this one:
“Why do we need this?
Is this a ploy to increase sales of mascot-related merchandise? Because I can’t see any respectable parent buying the hard back book “Mile’s Grand Adventure: a chronicle of Mile’s A-to-Z journey around the state of Colorado,” or a serious golfer shelling out $33 for headcovers in the shape of Mile’s head?”
