    About a year ago the guy who was the SA Spurs Coyote had a stroke. Before that no one even knew who he was! Anyway, due to his condition he wasn't able to continue (had several very "physical" stunts) so he became the mentor to a new Spurs Coyote. With Russel's permission and assistance, the Chicken could make a triumphant return too. Like so many have said, it really adds to the enjoyment of the baseball park experience.

    What a great return by the chicken! I was prepared for a slightly slower routine. What I got was someone who hasn't lost a step. Mr. Heim, thank you for a truly special night. It's the subleties of the chicken's expressions that make the difference between him and other mascots who just don't have the imagination. I would love to see the chicken make special appearances at selected games. I don't know if Mr. Heim would be interested, but I think it would be a nice compromise. From what I saw last night, there's a lot of life left in the chicken. By the way, does anyone else remember the MC Hammer routine from around 15 years ago?

    I am of the opinion that one of the reasons that the Chicken was such a hit last night was because we hadn't seen him in such a long time. Everyone loves nostalgia (note the folks who continue to wish for the "good ole days" at Blackham.)

    Speaking personally, during the end of his reign as a regular, some of the routines didn't mean as much to me anymore because I had seen them so many times. But last night, each and every one was great. And, I had seen them all before.......many times over.

    The Grim Reaper ALWAYS made me laugh......and I LOVED it last night.

    Tony talked with Russell last night and asked him to make an annual return for "Turn Back the Clock night." Russell has agreed.

    I could not agree more. While nostalgia was a part of the reason for the response, he still connects with people. Grim Reaper is my favorite, also. It's great to hear he will be making a return next year.

    I agree that part of the reason everybody was excited about the Chicken last night was because of the fact we have not seen him around in some time. I agree that the chicken is a one of a kind individual. Russel is without a doubt a talented individual.

    I think what needs to happen is Cayenne needs to be a suit that is more chicken like that can do more skits and stuff and with Russel's blessing maybe come out with a drum.

    My Favorite part of any chicken apearance is the DRUM, it get's the crowd going. I love that people who I know for a fact sit on there hands game in game out cheered last night. Now that was awesome.

    Where is the Alphonse suit, now that would be awesome. Alphonse return as a Ragin Cajun Bull gator.
