Fake mascot gets thrown out of Dodger Stadium

Oct 15, 2013, 6:24 AM EDT

Matthew mentioned this briefly, but I feel like this needs to be highlighted: Midway through the Cardinals-Dodgers game last night the Dodgers bear mascot got up on the first base dugout and started pumping up the crowd!  Woo hoo!

The only problem? The Dodgers don’t have a bear mascot.

Dodger fan in a bear costume! Confirmed: It’s just a fan, the #Dodgers don’t have a mascot. Whew!

He’s not the first fake mascot at a ballpark this year. I guess it’s a trend!

    Maybe its bears they have it in for? If he was dressed as a chicken, or a lemming, or maybe a fuitfly he might have got away with it. Maybe. The subtle prejudices against bears can be tricky to navigate. I hope they treated him humanely. Darted and carted off to a nice forrest somewhere.

      Maybe an armadillo. Now that’s a mascot I could get behind.

      But I love the thought of some fan being darted and waking up the next day dressed in a bear suit out in the forest. What would you tell them at work?

        Reminds me of the moose bit from Woody Allen’s standup:

      How about a female fruit bat cur?

      If they would have called Ernie the Wildman, he would have got him in a half-nelson, laid some “live action” on him, and relocated him to Jellystone National Park. Oh wait, the national parks are closed. Ok, never mind.

    He offended bears everywhere.

      If he had executed better on that jump, I bet they would’ve given him a few more minutes to do his thing. Damn drunk bears. They think they can dance.

    This is a thousand times funnier than running onto the field, drunk.

      Wannabe actor: Are you sure this is a good idea?
      Agent: Yeah, yeah, kid. Any publicity is good publicity.
      Wannabe actor: If you say so. Here goes…

    Confused UCLA fan? Extrovert Furry? Son of Pedobear?

    Standard procedure to not allow fans on dugout roofs. Liability issue. I’ve seen ushers speak to little kids who get on the roofs at Mud Hens games. They just don’t like it when you turn your back towards foul balls.

      No sh*t

    If it was a blonde with a big rack, they probably would have given her season tickets and a contract.

    • youvebeenphaneufed - Oct 15, 2013 at 10:58 AM

      Are you implying that it was Hulk Hogan in the bear suit, brother?

        I was quoting another famous unofficial mascot:'_Homer

    Pablo Sandoval ?

  9. pixteca - Oct 15, 2013 at 10:25 AM

    They hated him so much even Magic went to take him out.

  10. elmo - Oct 15, 2013 at 10:36 AM

    Obviously having too much fun. That bear should act like he’s been there before.

    • jcmeyer10 - Oct 15, 2013 at 12:49 PM

      That is Offbrand Mickey Mouse stuff.

      Hahahaha. This made me laugh out loud.

  12. radinsky36 - Oct 15, 2013 at 10:51 AM

    Juan Uribear. Has to be.

  13. lew24 - Oct 15, 2013 at 12:56 PM

    Is that Ted? I thought he would be a Red Sox fan!

  14. kevinbnyc - Oct 15, 2013 at 1:15 PM

    Fake/Unauthorized mascots are the new inefficiency.

  15. chiadam - Oct 15, 2013 at 1:26 PM

    Why is no one mentioning the possibility that it was real bear that happens to be a Dodgers fan? And if so, maybe he was tossed because he had no pants on. Think about it.

  16. louhudson23 - Oct 15, 2013 at 2:26 PM

    I saw him and could not understand why the Dodgers had a bear mascot…but then I remembered they all take part in the ultimate exercise of inanities and play walk up music ,and gave up trying to reason it out….

  17. MyTeamsAllStink - Oct 15, 2013 at 4:06 PM

    Pedo bear is everywhere.Watch your kids Dodger fans

  18. cathykarr5 - Oct 16, 2013 at 10:50 AM

    @MikeM Oh man.. im so glad you brought this up..Do you know about this? Bow6com

  19. jimeejohnson - Oct 19, 2013 at 11:02 AM

    There’d be NOBODY left in Dodger Stadium if they threw out all the phonies.

  20. mkprz - Oct 19, 2013 at 6:37 PM

    Two things that shined bright in the playoffs for the Dodgers…
    1) The fake mascot bear and
    2) The stand-off.
    Come on Cardinals, top that…
