Minor League baseball. Home of Thirsty Thursdays, 5/3 pound burgers stuffed with chili and Fritos and the most ridiculous giveaways and stunts. The Angels rookie affiliate in Orem is no different.
Apparently, bored by the action of 17 and 18-year-olds, the Orem Owlz mascot, Hoot, got married in 2009 to a new female mascot, Holly. Well, you guys, they have consummated that marriage. At a recent game, Holly revealed her pregnancy test to Hoot and the couple is expecting. You’ll have to wait until Opening Day 2013 to find out if it’s a boy or a girl, um, bird mascot.
You can watch the video on the Owlz Facebook page. An owl shaped pregnancy test would definitely rank in the top 6 weirdest giveaways I’ve ever heard of. Unfortunately, I don’t believe that actually happened, presumably because of Obamacare.
