This is Mascot Week. All week I am featuring encounters with my favorite mascots.
Sky Guy was introduced in a ceremony at the Lincoln Park Zoo. His real first name is Guy, but "Sky" was added when he became a fan of the Chicago Sky. Sky Guy has five older sisters and spent a lot of his childhood playing basketball with them. Sky Guy invented his jet pack as a way to travel in search of the best of women's basketball.
I have met Sky Guy several times at various events. This picture was when Sky Guy appeared at a Chicago bandits game to help celebrate the birthday of Swiper, the Bandits mascot. It was a major mascot invasion at the Ballpark in Rosemont and I loved it.
