Mick E. Moose

Being a herbivore, I mostly ate salads, greens and fruit. Moose generally have to eat a lot of food to maintain our body weight, so I am constantly eating. Mother would often find a nice pond or marsh, and we would sit there for hours, snacking in the sunshine.

I mostly eat salads, but I always like to spice things up by throwing in some wild berries and nuts that I find out in the wild. Blueberries are my favourite.

I need to stay hydrated, so I drink plenty of water before a game. It's important to eat a meal with a lot of nutrients, so I like to eat big salad of greens, with a lot of nuts and fruit mixed in to give me those extra nutrients. 

It's not hard to get pumped up for a game. Just thinking about stepping out in front of 15,000 hockey fans makes my skin tingle. My job itself is enough to get me pumped up for a Jets game.

Because of the amount of walking, dancing and high-fiving I do on a game day, I need to be very loose and limber. Normally I do my stretches and warm-ups for about an hour prior to game time. Then I throw on my jersey and meet the fans! 

I am nervous before every single game, but I use that nervousness to fuel my energy. I just remind myself, "You have the best job in the world" and it helps me focus on what I need to do.

I always enjoy heading back home to Sandilands Provincial Forest. There is so much forest, wetlands and sand hills to roam around in, I never get bored, and it's always good to be home!

 

I was born to be a mascot. I have never really ever considered a different career, because I have known for as long as I can remember that I would be a mascot. It's the best job in the world, and without it, I would be lost.

 

I wouldn't trade my place for anything in the world. I get to be the mascot for the best team, in the best league, in my home province, with the best fans in the world. There is nowhere else I would rather be.
