Menace fans –
Thanks for joining us for Saturday’s anticipated festivities at Valley Stadium. It was great seeing so many of you at the Menace’s regular-season opener!
After months of hard work to get in the best shape of my mascot life, my grand unveil turned out exactly as I envisioned.
My good friend Surge entertained the crowd during the first half of the Menace’s match against Chicago Fire U23, and at halftime, a mysterious package appeared on the field. The special delivery? Me, of course!
To the que of “Eye of a Tiger,” the package began to rumble and shake until I exploded out, and the new and improved me was revealed.
I showed off my new strength by punching through numerous cement blocks and lifting heavy dumbbells with ease. My adrenaline was pumping and I was feeding off the cheers from the crowd.
My favorite part of the night was getting to see all of the fans throughout the second half of the game. I love nothing more than taking photos and cheering on the Menace with you guys. Did I mention the W the Menace can tack onto its record? That made the night even better!
Seeing your smiling faces at the stadium made me the happiest mascot ever. I will continue to work hard to stay in tip-top shape, and I hope to see many of you at future home games. Thank you for all of your support for me and for your Des Moines Menace!
