re: Dancing bear banishment
by Al Pastor
The story about the Dodger fan jumping up to strut his stuff in a bear costume on top of the Cardinal dugout (http://www.sportingnews.com/mlb/story/2013-10-14/dodgers-fan-bear-costume-dugout-dance-nlcs-game-2-video) reminds me of Mordecai Richler’s reflection on Youppi, the whatever-he-was creature/mascot for the Montreal Expos. Richler wrote Youppi made him reconsider his stand on capital punishment! Funny man. For the record, the dancing bear was ejected by security, but the Dodgers won the game.
