On Thursday, August 29, Delgado Community College’s mascot, Izzy, got a chance to hang out with Boudreaux, the mascot for the New Orleans Zephyrs. We sat down with Izzy to find out what it was like to meet a fellow mascot in the New Orleans community:
So, what were your impressions of Boudreaux??
Izzy: He’s a lot taller than I expected. Doesn’t really talk a whole lot either.
And what about the “shrine on airline”? Were you impressed with their stadium?
Izzy: It’s pretty cool. When I saw the swimming pool I had a sudden urge to Dive In, but i gotta tell ya, nothing beats watching a game at Kirsch-Rooney!!
Is this the first time you’ve had the opportunity to hang out with a fellow mascot?
Izzy: It’s a very competitive industry that I am in. Some guys refuse to hang out with you because of their ego or they think you will out perform them at their stadium. I mean, look at the San Diego Chicken. He beat up Barney one time!!! So that is why I was so surprised to get they invite from Boudreaux. He is a real class act.
Can we assume the Pelicans and Saints have not called you yet?
Izzy: Well, the Pelican is kinda new in town, but I think we’d have a whale of a time together. As for Sir Saint, he hasn’t returned my call since I said his chin was bigger than Jay Leno’s!
