So who are the people that dress up in costume as mascots and travel with NFL football teams?
Seems like it’s one of those once-in-a-lifetime jobs for a college student.
But with the Seattle Seahawks mascot, Blitz, not so. Blitz is a Microsoft executive, Ryan Asdourian, who’s day job is currently executive communications manager. He’s been with Microsoft since 2004, starting out of college as a software test engineer and working up the ranks from then.
He’s fairly famous in Seattle, and has been moonlighting as Blitz since 2006, according to his LinkedIn profile.
Having a Microsoft exec as mascot is exceedingly appropriate for the Seahawks. The team is owned by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen.
