|There have been gatherings before, but Laredo could host First True Mascot Convention|
Actually, we can kill two birds with one stone and hold a mascot zoo for the local kids, being that the closest thing Laredo has to a zoo is the LCC Rio Grande center. As creative as Laredo is, I'm sure we can think of lots of other ways to cash in on this. I, for one, would like to be at the Laredo city council meeting when this idea is presented. I'm wondering if it's going to be the UT Longhorn or the Dallas Cowboy mascot who will be standing at the podium next to the LCVB presenters.
Admitedly, this idea was inspired by he excellent coverage that our local mascots have received through the various blogs. What's so puzzling is why BorderTownBlues did not jump at this idea. If ever there is someone who admires and respects mascots, it's BTB. Naturally, LaSanbe is a mascot afficionado as well, as evidenced by his cutting-edge video of a dozens of mascots in a dance-off at our Civic Center.
