Sports: All-Mascot Exhibition Broomball Game

By Maija Zummo · January 12th, 2010 · CityBeat Recommends

What is “broomball,” you ask? It’s a combination of soccer and hockey where players wear gym shoes, not skates, and use a hockey-stick-like utensil with a broom-shaped head to pass a ball back and forth on an ice rink in order to score a goal. And while Fountain Square has it’s own Broomball League that plays games four days a week, the All-Mascot Exhibition Broomball Game is very special.

Instead of your average recreational athletes, this game will be played by area mascots. Divided into teams of “sports” mascots and “non-sports” mascots, guys and gals in giant fuzzy suits will go head to head for mascot glory. Sporty dudes include Mr. Redlegs and UC’s Bearcat and non-sporty mascots include P&G’s fuzzy Charmin Bear and Chick-fil-A’s Eat More Chicken Cow. Booze will be available for purchase. 1 p.m. at Fountain Square.
