Mascots are hilarious and fascinating, and basically one-person theater shows. Mascots even go to mascot camp to learn how to walk, cry, fight, and basically be awesome. Check out this clip from Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel:

I have been in love with mascots for years. Milwaukee Brewers sausage races, mascot soccer games, or watching Bucky beat up the visiting team mascot has been a way of life. I would be most happy to cheer on the team (not unlike a cheerleader) but do that in between expressing my emotions mascot-style rather than in between some high kicks.
Mascots bring such joy, don't they? Here is a fun Big 10 mascot video to make your day:

So please, don't consider me a cheerleader... I am a mascot at heart. On Wisconsin!
