Wow! What a night!! Felix Falcon invited us to the Mascot Bowl and Jazz Bear chose Lilly to be one of his VIP's. We felt like royalty. We got to sit on the sideline of the field, whereas everyone else had to sit on the bleachers behind the fence. What a fun fun night!!
Lilly was a little nervous at first to get her picture taken with the mascots because she knows how wild and crazy they can be. And as you can see, Emery didn't like it one bit. Lilly did love getting her picture with the beautiful Jazz Dancers. :)
She slowly warmed up to them and was glad she got to meet so many mascots. Willy from UVU and Lil' Jazz Bear
Leo the Lion from Real Salt Lake,
and Freddie Falcon from the Atlanta Falcons
Swoop the Hawk from the U, and Benny the Bull from the Chicago Bulls
Miles from the Denver Broncos, Grizzbee, Big Blue, Bumble...
The Utah Jazz Dunk Team was there, the stunt cheerleaders, and Crunch from the Timberwolves wanted to be in on the action!
I can't imagine how difficult it must have been for the mascots to play football in their costumes. They can hardly see or run in those things, let alone catch a ball!
Lilly got a special football signed by all of the mascots given to her by Felix Falcon. What a treasure!
Here's some highlights on Good 4 Utah News. You'll see Felix giving Lilly the special football.
During halftime, there was a live band playing the song from "Footloose" so Lilly and Felix were dancing. He's such a good Bird! We love you Felix!!
Boomer from the Indiana Pacers came over to hang with us for a bit...
He was pretty silly...
Emery even warmed up to him a little bit and even waved goodbye to him when he left. Slowly but surely she wasn't quite so terrified.
The Mascots lost to Lehi High school. They only scored one touchdown. And guess who scored? FELIX FALCON!!! Way to go! Thanks so much for inviting us Felix. It's a night we will always remember. Lilly talked about it all the way home last night, and is still talking about it this morning.
We made some great memories!!
