The sad thing is, that this is the biggest thing that he will probably ever do in his life.
Logan, has it occurred to you that a mascot's job is to get attention and entertain fans? That's the sole purpose of their existence. They're at the game to add additional atmosphere.
Two mascots fighting and tackling one another is rather common. It's not even always scripted. Unfortunately I had to listen to two hours of drunken stories from a former Brutus telling me occasional tales of things he had done/had done to/from other mascots. There is a lot of this stuff that goes on and it's not even always planned--which is why this whole thing makes no sense.
Further, so he got his five minutes of fame. Thing is, I really don't think he did it for the attention. Do you really think he expected to be on ESPN? Really? The fact that this has gotten so much attention could have never, ever been expected by anyone.
