Meeting the NFL mascots has been my ultimate goal and now I was going to get to meet them at the Play 60 event, here, Jan. 27.

As the weeks grew closer, I had a million questions for my Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation coworkers, like: "Would I get to meet the mascots?" "What would I say?" "Which mascots are coming?" "Will they like me?"

After weeks of waiting, the moment had arrived; I was standing beak-to- beak with Poe from the Baltimore Ravens! Then I turned my head and saw the Chicago Bears’ mascot, Staley da Bear.
