Earlier this week, I had expressed some concern over the lack of information regarding Parker, the mascot of the Fresno Grizzlies, who had threatened to not come down from the top of Fresno’s tallest building unless the seats were packed for Opening Day.
Today, I learned that Parker’s threat may have actually worked.
I found the mascot’s blog (yes, he has a blog) and saw that not only did he participate in the Opening Day festivities (he’s off the ledge!), but also that the Grizzlies did pack over 13,000 (or so Parker claims) fans. Just to make sure, I looked up the info on Chukchansi Park and learned that it has a seating capacity of 12,500. So unless Parker is the biggest liar since Neil Armstrong (you did nothing of consequence, sir), it was a standing room only event. During which he wore ladies’ clothes.
So please be assured. Parker is alive. And he’s not crazy in the least. He just likes wearing women’s clothes from time to time.
