Archive: Simon’s Sausage

Hee’s one from the archives that I stumbled over yesterday. It’s a cartoon that I did for the Philadelphia Daily News in 2003.

The story was this: A baseball player, playfully batting at a mascot doing a race on the field, acidentally tripped the mascot, hurting the woman inside the costume.

[ESPN] Pittsburgh first baseman Randall Simon was questioned by sheriff’s officers after hitting one of the Milwaukee Brewers’ sausage mascots with his bat during a game… “That wasn’t my intention in my heart for that to happen,” he said before Thursday’s Brewers-Pirates game. “I was just trying to get a tap at the costume and for her to finish the race.”
