Fox 5 hosted the 4th Annual Mascot Madness this morning, featuring our own Jack the Bulldog (no, not the injured one) and 14 other local mascots from the Capitals, the Nationals, American University, Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School and more. The tournament pitted us against Louie, the mascot of the Bowie Baysox, a Minor League baseball team in Maryland (and Mayor of LouieVille, Maryland, no less).
While Jack won the tipoff and put up the first shot, Louie made the first basket, and advanced to the second round of the tournament. Jack seemed to be a good sport, and stuck around to cheer on the other mascots in the tournament.
We could have done without the reporter’s comment about NC State though — too soon.
American University’s Clawed the Eagle (2011 Mascot Madness Champion) played the Nationals’ Screech in the championship game, with Screech taking home the trophy.
