No, the title is not a typo. The mascot of the Kansas City Chiefs will be the featured speaker at an event that emphasizes sexual abstinence until marriage, according to the Houston Herald.
Dan Meers will address middle and high school students at a “True Love Waits” youth rally beginning at 6 p.m. Saturday at Golden Hills Trail Rides at Raymondville.
Meers travels throughout the country and world, entertaining in and out of costume. His career began in 1986 at the University of Missouri as the school mascot, Truman. He soon established himself as one of the top college mascots in the nation. After finishing second in 1988, he was selected the nation’s top college mascot at the 1989 National Collegiate Mascot Championships.
Following graduation, he traded his tiger stripes for bird feathers and began his professional career as Fredbird, mascot for the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team. After a year with the Cardinals, he was offered a job in professional football and became the Kansas City Wolf.
Does anyone else find it odd that an abstinence rally picked someone that never wears pants to be their featured speaker?
