Here's Thunderbug — mascot of the Tampa Bay Lightning — capering about and engaging in various hijinks with young'uns at the beach. And if Thunderbug didn't have a big inflatable insect costume on, you could bet he'd be getting his ass kicked six ways from Sunday. I guess you can do anything you want if you're wearing dressed as a mascot.
Well, almost anything. Turns out renting the San Diego Chicken costume isn't enough to get you backstage at The Jewel Box. But it was worth a try.
