Dance Dance Revolution

One of the best things that major sports organizations do these days is promote good will for its cities, and create events that generate money for local charities.

The Mariners have been doing this for as long as I can remember, and they seem to have the most fun while doing it.

This time around, it was the mascot dance off for kids appreciation day at Safeco Field.

Among the participants were, the Mariner Moose (of course), and mascots from the Seattle Storm, Seattle Seahawks, Tacoma Rainiers, Seattle Thunderbirds, and Everett Silvertips.

The video

These guys got moves!

Seriously, I don’t see how they can still get down while wearing all that extra fluffy material on their costumes.

Anyways, the mascots play what looks like follow the leader, each of the other teams mascot’s try to mimic the Mariner Moose in a very sloppy flash mob style dance.

The whole thing is a competition against 27 other mascot teams around the country, and each performance is judged.

Style

I’m not the type of person who sits around and watches MTV anymore, so I’m not to hip on the dance styles of this generation.

I do give points to the Silvertips mascot though, he looked like he was bustin’ a move out there in the second biggest outfit of all the mascots.

In terms of synchronicity, I think the group got lost near the end of their piece, as the Seahawks mascot seems to be confused whether he should fist pump, or shuffle.

All in all, this looked like a fun experience for kids appreciation day, I kind of wish I could have been there for that.

It takes the mind off another losing season, if not just for the thirty seconds of the dance routine.

This is why I love the Mariners. Even in losing, they know how to treat their fans to an awesome day at the ballpark, all the while grooming the future generation of M’s fans too.
