Devil Rays Forever

Two interesting things happened in the stands of the Tropicana Dome behind home plate during this two-game series, both captured by the centerfield cameras.

1) While Ian Kennedy was pitching, some guy in a big, inflatable mascot suit (I can't find a picture) stood directly in Kennedy's line of vision and jumped up and down in a blatant attempt to distract him. In the MAJOR leagues. For reals, you guys. Also, this mascot-type thing had like a two-foot long tongue hanging out of its mouth, and looked like it was poised to make some lady mascot very happy.

2) During last night's game, Brian Knobs of The Nasty Boys sat in the front row behind home plate.
