Wool E. Bull putting finishing touches on championship party

Posted September 11, 2012

— Although the Bulls season is over, it has been hectic around the DBAP lately. We are anxiously getting ready for the Gildan Triple-A National Championship Game on Tuesday, Sept.18. This is the first Championship Game I am hosting, so I want to make sure it goes off without a hitch.

The International League and Pacific Coast League playoffs are down to the wire. Only the Charlotte Knights and Pawtucket Red Sox remain in the IL, while the Omaha Storm Chasers and the Reno Aces are left in the PCL. So while we wait for the results of the finals, I have to make sure this place is in tip-top shape.

Being the host mascot has its own responsibilities. I have to make sure the other mascots feel right at home. I am excited to see who will be joining me on the 18th. Homer the Dragon from the Charlotte Knights doesn’t have to travel very far if his team makes it. Homer and I go way back. I’m used to seeing him whenever I go to visit my other mascot friends around North Carolina. If the PawSox make it to Durham, Paws will take the trip. I think he will feel right at home, though it might be a little bit warm for a polar bear in these parts.

It’s going to be fun to reunite with either Paws or Homer, but I am more excited to see who from the PCL will be coming down to Durham. I haven’t met a lot of my future friends from the PCL, but here is what I know about them. Archie is the face of the Reno Aces. He is, to put it simply, a giant red blob. According to his bio, he enjoys eating everything. I hope I don’t become roast beef. My other furry friend from the PCL is Stormy from the Omaha Storm Chasers. I was pretty confused at first, thinking my buddy Stormy from the Carolina Hurricanes picked up, moved half-way across the country and changed sports. After I freaked out, I was reassured to find out there are two mascots named Stormy. I hope they can get along, otherwise things might get, well, um, cloudy.

Anyway let’s get down to business. I am incredibly excited for the big game. We have nothing but non-stop fun packed into every nook and cranny. The cat is out of the bag, my best friend (trust me on this one), Scotty McCreery will be throwing out the first pitch AND singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during the 7th inning stretch. I made a few calls and once I got him on the line, he had no choice, but to come to big game. I keep telling the former American Idol to try and get me on the show, but he said that they don’t allow bovines on for insurance reasons. Whatever.

Once last thing I want to mention is my work with the Special Olympics of North Carolina. I am in the process of raising money for this great organization. If you help me reach my goal of $1,000, the kind folks at the Special Olympics of NC will let me rappel off the Well Fargo Building in Downtown Raleigh. If you want to help me raise money for a great cause and see a Bull come flying at you from 32 stories high, please go to http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/woolebull/over-the-edge-raleigh.

Alright, I have to run. I need to get ready to warm Scotty up for his big first pitch. See you on the 18th!
