The Raiders asked me to write a few things down, that would help introduce me, and how I started in basketball!
Well… One day when I was asleep in the Foxy Den, under the Pavilions, a noise woke me up suddenly and it sounded like someone was bouncing a ball on my ceiling. Being the inquisitive Fox that I am I wandered up the secret passage way to the main arena, from my Den, and to my absolute delight I saw a basketball match taking place.
Many of you might not know but I have been a massive basketball fan for years and my idol is Benny the Bull – the mascot for the Chicago Bulls who play in the NBA in America! Anyway I sat in the corner watching the game and was amazed at what I saw.
I ordered a kit and at the next game I slipped into the arena quietly and sat in the corner watching the game. Suddenly, without any warning some music came on and before I could stop myself I was out on the court dancing and getting the crowd to join in with a Mexican wave. The rest, as they say, is history.
The highlight of my week is when we have a home game and I get the opportunity to see you all and help make as much noise as possible for the players. I love being able to perform my Foxy routines for you during timeouts and attempting the dunk!
I hope you have enjoyed reading this little insight into my world and I look forward to seeing you all at the next home game.
This is Foxy signing off!
