Inside Keystone Mascot Camp

If you have ever been to a summer camp, you know how crazy it can get, but have you ever been to a Mascot camp? Now that is a completely different level of crazy! Keystone Mascot Company offers a camp for mascots to develop their skills, whether it is costume care, crowd interactions, or simply body language. The 3-day camp is full of fun, furry action. 3 days of non-stop fun sounds pretty awesome! On the 3rd day, the camp has a graduation game, where the campers perform a skit and then run wild! The graduation game usually takes place at minor league baseball game, but can change, depending on what is available.
I, myself, have been to the camp and experience the “awesomeness” of it. The counselors, or coaches, are hilarious and even get in suit to join in on the fun! The coaches still help me to this day, very nice people and they will teach you a lot about the great “art of mascotting.” I loved my experience at the camp and I am also planning on going back this following summer!
I would recommend the camp to anyone planning on going on as a college/professional mascot or if you just simply want to have some fun in a furry suit! Keystone Mascot camp is the camp to go with, if you are looking to have some awesome fun!

High on Controversy for the Bongy

A few months ago we covered a story regarding a mascot that a Town didn’t like we were able to get a hold of to interview him check it out below!
1. You were featured on Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report. What are you thoughts on that? I am pretty excited about being on the Colbert Report. I have all kinds of cute girl mascots calling me now. Even Minnie Mouse called me. I’m famous now….and I love it.
2. How has this media exposure changed your life? My life is changing by the minute. Like I said…. Minnie mouse even wants a date…. I even have some movie deals I am discussing.
3. Why do you think Esquimalt City Councillor Tim Morrison is trying to run you out of town? You just would not believe it… You just never think you would see that political corruption you see on TV in your own back yard…. If you Google Bongy the bong warehouse esquimalt bc than you will see some pictures of me out in the neighborhood having a good time. The one picture I am referring to is of me up on a cube van doing the jig promoting a sale at ” The Bong Warehouse” across the street. Well….low and behold….. Good old Timmy Boy and his sister have financial ties to the condominium project you see in the picture behind me. I guess they feel we are lowering the property values. We used to have a liquor store next door and right next to this condominium project the other liquor store was mysteriously burned to the ground. It was called ” The Tudor House Pub” I can’t believe that monster would have that place run out of town too…. All I am trying to do is offer the lovely residents of this neighborhood a convenient place to purchase discount medical devices for their natural pain management. More of our clients are over fifty than under. Sometimes I really get scared that he is gonna hurt me but people need me and I am there for them. We aren’t going anywhere. They will have to burn us out too.
4. Tim Morrison has proposed legislation that would require mascots on public property to have a permit. Your thoughts? I think having to have a permit to walk down the street is an outrageous display of racism. Do mascots have no rights? What is this world coming too. I will stand tall and walk the streets when and how I feel like it. I am a mascot with pride.
5. When people see you what are their immediate reactions? When people see me I am welcomed with smiles and open arms. This Tim Morrison character has small man syndrome and is really mad that he is so short. Short in many ways the girls tell me.
Thank you to Bongy for taking the time to interview with us.

Quoth the Raven

MascotInsider is pleased to present you an interview with Poe from the Ravens team let's begin below.. 1. What do you do to get the fans excited during the game? Get our fans excited? Our fans are already excited! From the moment I streak out of the tunnel ahead of the team, our fans know how to create a home field advantage. Of course, I get rather crazy on the sidelines on defensive 3rd downs, but our fans already know it's time to get rowdy! 2. Who is your arch nemesis of the mascot world? My nemesis isn't a mascot, it's a towel! A little, puny, twirling, piece of fabric that looks like it is used to clean up mustard spills. That Steely McBeam never shows his bearded face, so he doesn't bother me. But that silly terrible towel, I WILL see its demise one day, I WILL! 3. Your team just won a Super Bowl. How did you celebrate? Well first, I made confetti angels on the field of the Super Dome as the team celebrated the victory. Then, I flew back to Baltimore to celebrate with the fans. And on a side note, my arms weren't tired, the seats on the plane have arm rests. I never got that joke. Back to the celebration. There were millions, no billions, wait no, there were trillions of fans there to celebrate during our victory parade! My wings are still sore from all the high fives! 4. Any ideas of who turned out the lights during the Super Bowl? My investigation is ongoing. 5. Do you ever occasionally make bets with other mascot? I know Jaxson does. Jaxson does a lot of things that would get most mascots permanently relocated to the zoo. Every year, I get a memo from the league office left in my nest reminding me to not be like Jaxson. 6. If I'm not mistaking there used to be three of you guys Edgar, Allan, and well you. What happened to Edgar and Allan? While my brothers still love the Ravens, they found other passions to follow. Edgar and Allan followed their love of music. While Allan starting writing and composing, Edgar started producing. They recently opened their own hip-hop recording studio. They called it Chamber Doors. Weird name if you ask me. 7. How well do you interact with other mascots? We all get along very well. We tend to avoid Jaxson because he'll get us into trouble. Freddie Falcon was also known for getting into some mischief, especially in his younger days, though he has calmed down a bit recently. 8. How do you deal with a crowd that lacked energy? I'm in Baltimore, our crowds never lack energy! Seriously, I don't know why we even have seats at M&T Bank Stadium, our fans rarely sit! 9. How do you deal with the times that YOU lacked energy? I eat more crab cakes and watch videos of Ray Lewis! 10. What do you do during the off-season? Off-season, what off-season? Ravens fan celebrate football all year. We have a gigantic party for the draft at M&T Bank Stadium. This summer, a huge flock of Ravens fans all went to the beach for a parade and beach party with me, Cheerleaders, Baltimore's Marching Ravens, and players. Then I took a nap, and when I woke up, it was time for training camp. 11. Who was or is your favorite player to interact with? (Ravens and opposing player) Terrell Suggs celebrates his stadium introduction by knocking me to ground, and I love it! Chad Johnson, or Ottoplinko, whatever his name is now; he always called me a grey duck, I didn't like it at first, but now that he's gone, I kind of miss it. Thank you to Poe for taking the time to join us for an interview for more information about Poe you can visit his official website by clicking here.

A Phantical Interview With The Phanatic

MascotInsider is proud to present a Phantical Interview with MLB top mascot The Phanatic! Let’s begin below..
1. What do you do to get the fans excited during the game?
Of course, I’m doing everything I can to get the fans excited. Rhythmic
clapping, trying to see which section cheers louder and dancing with
players, coaches and umpires usually does the trick. When all else fails,
rolling my belly around in circles never fails!
2. You versus Tommy Lasorda. Who wins?
Even though Tommy has a hundred or so pounds on me, I can still take him.
3. What’s it like to be in the Mascot Hall of Fame?
It’s an honor to be recognized as one of the all-time professional idiots
of all time. My Mom, Phoebe, is so proud.
3. What’s it like to be enshrined in Cooperstown?
I was at the Baseball Hall of Fame recently and was taken aback when I saw
the life-sized replica of me in the glass case. It was like looking in a
mirror. What makes it so special is that they have me displayed in the
same room where an exhibit of Max Patkin is displayed. The Clown Prince
of Baseball is my hero and was the model for the modern day mascot.
4. You have been around since 1978. What are some of your favorite memories?
It seems like a favorite memory is created every day I’m out there either
at the game or somewhere out at an appearance. Certainly, the two
championship parades down Broad Street have to be at the top of the list.
Our final game at the Vet was a day I’ll always remember. I walked around
the entire stadium that day and to see the emotion from the fans who loved
the Vet was amazing. I dressed in a tuxedo and danced to Donna Summer’s
Last Dance on the dugout at the end of the game. A bunch of fans jumped
up on the dugout to join me – it was awesome.
5. Your ATV stalled out before the game against the Washington Nationals
on June 17. Could Jayson Werth be behind what happened?
The gears got stuck and I couldn’t get it into neutral. Jayson was trying
actually trying to help out. This mascotting thing is a funny business.
At a real job, if you screw up, you get fired. With this job, if you
screw up, people laugh and you end up on ESPN at the end of the night.
6. How well do you interact with other mascots?
My favorite time of the year is the All Star Game. The MLB mascots have
been attending the All Star Game since Philadelphia hosted the game in
1996. We have a great time together although the smell emanating from our
dressing room could knock over an adult elephant.
7. How do you deal with a crowd that lacked energy?
If a crowd lacks energy, I go out between innings and smash a Mets helmet.
Works every time.
8. How do you deal with the times that YOU lacked energy?
If I lack energy, I go out between innings and smash a Mets helmet. Works
every time.
9. What do you do during the off-season?
I like going out and being with the people. Weddings, bar mitzvahs,
schools, hospitals, malls, ribbon-cutting events, rodeos, basket weaving
contests, funerals, you name it and I’ll be there.
10. Who was or is your favorite player to interact with. (Phillies and
opposing player)
Favorite opposing player – Joe Carter. Yeah, I should hate his guts for
beating us with that HR in 1993, but we had some battles back in the day
that the crowd loved. Chucky Carr was another guy who used to mix it up
with me. He would try to pie me before the game and he’d bring his own
Super Soaker and start water fights.
Favorite Phillie – ALL OF THEM!
A BIG Thanks to The Phanatic for taking to the time to do an interview with us at MascotInsider. For more information about The Phanatic click here to visit his home page!
