Ozzie shines during River City Rumble and on YouTube


OK, I haven’t written anything in a while, so let’s recap a bit. The River City Rumble on the hardwood didn’t go as planned on many accounts.

There were a few bright spots in the doubleheader though: The Velocity and the greatest mascot in Jacksonville were on hand to entertain the largest basketball crowd of the season.

The lovely ladies of The Velocity show that they prepare a lot more for games than I do. I wake up and go to the game. That’s about it. I find that the more I prepare, the more goes wrong.

At basketball games, I usually decide what I’m going to do just before the PA guy announces my name. As for The Velocity, they train early; I mean the-sun-is-barely-up early. I practiced with them for an hour before I actually woke up.  I’m glad they made my part easy, but I’m sure they knew I’d make it up on the fly anyways.

Be sure to check me out on YouTube. Just use the keywords: OZZIE OSPREY.

There should be six or seven videos on there, and I encourage you to shoot and upload your
own videos of me. It would be a big help.
