Rocky the Racoon, Mascot of the People! ..seasonal Mascot for the Shamrocks.

Kevin Alexander- cause he is the Gretzky of Lacrosse is why! Also lesser known Rosco Racoon, from the All Forrest Sr. Critters – he got the moves like Jagger!

Seeing my old pals at our Barn, all the Kids on Minor Lacrosse night, but mostly to deliver crushing defeats to a certain team with a very yummy fish on their Jerseys’
“Stay Calm and Shamrock On!”

No Comment. I bleed only Green.
Favourite lacrosse memory?
2005 as a little Racoon I watched the Mann Cup lifted at Bear Mountain Arena – HOME TURF!
If you could participate in any event in lacrosse history, what would it be? Why?
Mascotting in ALL 17 of the Shamrocks Mann Cup appearances –that’d be the pinnacle of Mascotting!
How do you spend your time away from the arena?
Stay busy advocating Racoon road safety all over the Island, but stay fit competing and elite Xtreme Dumpster Diving league…I’m kinda a big deal in those circles.
