There are certain things that should be reality shows — and I am now convinced mascot tryouts should be one.
The Adirondack Flames of the AHL hosted an open tryout for their new mascot and it was as awkward as you would imagine it being.
I don’t want to poke too much fun at these fine people, but I really can’t resist.
They all try to work the room, with various degrees of success. Wow, that’s a tough crowd.
The first and second guy were your run-of-the-mill silly dudes who probably took themselves pretty seriously. The third guy is the one who got me… his tryout was maybe 5 seconds. I’ll tell you what, I would vote for him!
