SUPERBOWL SPIKE gets revealed… @azsuperbowl @superbowl #superbowlarizona #mascot #spike @90265mag


For those of you who may not know this, my wife Kathie builds funny costumes. And even though they are funny, her clients include Ellen DeGeneres, The White House and the Arizona Superbowl. It’s Funny, in a VERY serious sort of way, Mr. White House Doods.

And now, we can finally reveal what the new Arizona Superbowl Mascot is as he’s appeared on TV recently (see below) and I’m very grateful that I got to design SPIKE, Kathie’s magic fingers building him. But… you want to see how she did it? Ok, then… WATCH!
