Dodgers 'Rally Bear' Unmasked, Gets Six-Month Dodger Stadium Ban

There was an unexpected interloper during Monday night’s Cardinals/Dodgers game in Los Angeles: The Rally Bear.

Tuesday the Bear revealed himself to KTLA. Believe it or not the man behind the stunt is 50-year-old furniture store owner named Mark Monninger. He simply wants to see the team add a mascot.

The LA Times reports:

Monninger called it “a gonzo, guerrilla-thing where you just go for it.”

“Not bad for a white guy…. Trust me, it can get way better,” Monninger said of his late-game performance. “I can tear up a rug if I have to.”

The owner of an office-furniture store, Monninger said he was trying to drive home the point that the Dodgers need a mascot.

“I’m not trying to promote any organization or cause…. I just want to show fans, this is what is out there, this is someone that can entertain you,” he said.

Mystery solved.  Those are some serious moves for a 50-year-old. [H/T Ryan]
