Once a year mascots, rather than the teams they represent, get to be the main attraction. On Saturday, over 15,000 fans gathered to cheer on 30 mascots from across the country in the 18th annual Celebrity Mascot Games. Mascots from Major League Baseball, NFL, NBA, NHL and NCAA participated in a series of thrilling events in  hopes of winning the title of mascot champion. These participants proved that some mascots are as talented as their athlete counterparts, while others…fell short.  Proceeds from the event went to New Hopes for Kids, a nonprofit that supports children with life-threatening diseases.
