Question: Which professional sports mascot is inspired by the actions of a drunk fan?

Answer: “Bernie Brewer,” the mascot of the Milwaukee Brewers, is inspired by Milt Mason, a 69 year-old fan who climbed atop the team’s scoreboard in June of 1970 and swore not to come down until the stadium was filled with 40,000 people. He didn’t come down for 40 days.
