About this product Synopsis A lighthearted, personal, and amusing cultural history of the sports mascot by a former Mr. Met Yes, It's Hot in Here explores the entertaining history of the mascot from its jester roots in Renaissance society to the slapstick pantomime of the Clown Prince of Baseball, Max Patkin, all the way up to the mascots of the slam-dunk, rock-and-roll, Jumbotron culture of today.
Wolf , and Glenn Street Harvey the Hound and finds out what it is about being a mascot that simply won't leave the performer. Mass examines what motivates high school and college students to compete for the chance to wear a sweaty animal suit and possibly face the ridicule of their peers in the process, as well as women who have proudly served as mascots for teams in both the pro and amateur ranks. In the book's final chapter, Mass climbs inside a mascot costume one more time to describe what it feels like and, perhaps, rediscover a bit of magic.

Reviews "A witty and wild ride narrated by a sharp writer with a big heart and beautiful soul. But after learning that AJ Mass, a former Mr. Met, once inspired Bret Saberhagen to pitch a five-hit shutout and that his performance once distracted Braves slugger Fred McGriff to the point he was nearly decapitated during infield practice, perhaps I shouldn't.
The result is a memoir-cum-Mr. Met-genealogy which traces the roots of the character and the intersection of his own turn in the role through a taxonomy of mascotdom, from the royal courts of Renaissance Europe to keg-saturated college campuses. It is studded with profiles of mascots Mass has known and those he has searched out, the quiet practitioners of the art of mugging for a crowd in an anthropomorphized animal suit.
