When Sparty Attacks!

Got the picture and email below from MZone reader, Andrew W. in Austin, Texas. Sometimes the good stuff just falls from the heavens...or arrives in our inbox.

Dear M Zone:

I thought you would like to see this....

I was in Michigan for a few days last week to visit my parents. I took
my family to the West Michigan Whitecaps game one night. It was a very
exciting night at Fifth/Third Ballpark.

The traditional minor league "race the mascot" event took place between
the 2nd & 3rd innings. However, this night was different because a kid
from the stands got to race a BUNCH of mascots in attendance that night.
It was a very memorable sprint for this young Grand Rapids child,
because he raced and beat every mascot in the park -- but unfortunately
for him, one of the mascots he beat decided to run him over at the end
of the race.

I captured this image of the crying/injured child and the culprit.

Boo Sparty!!!!!!

Go Blue,
Andrew W.
Austin, Texas

"It'll be sore for awhile, but you'll forget about it. In fact, when you get older you may look forward to it. Just ask any UCLA fan whose been to the USC-UCLA game for the last 7 years."
