Sourdough Sam is touted as “the most diligent mascot in the NFL” in these sections.
He is also the biggest fan of the 49ers-at least in terms of hat size.
He is a playful gold prospector with an amazing beard and an appetite for sourdough bread. He has been attracting fans since the team’s days in Candlestick Park. Now, with his miners picking the ball in the air, Sam leads the 49ers on the field at Levi’s Stadium.
This is a job that requires good conditions and super energy. Therefore, when he does not cause cheers, he will do aerobic exercise and supplement energy with delicious food. During the offseason, Sam likes to meet young fans at 49er youth camps, schools, birthday parties and other events. According to reports, he greeted everyone with a bright smile and strong fists, even supporters of the Los Angeles Rams.
As the new football season is approaching, Sourdough Sam took time out of his busy schedule to answer some sharp questions in a super exclusive interview.
Q: We think it’s cool for you to participate in games for free and hang out on the court. But what is the best thing about being a mascot?
A: The biggest advantage of being a mascot is that it can boost the audience’s energy before, during and after the game. This energy is most needed when the team is on the court and in the fourth quarter of a close match.
Question: Use three words to describe yourself.
A: The mascot of the people.
Q: Do you have a favorite dance music?
A: Yes. “Happy” by Pharrell Williams.
Q: When you want to excite the audience at Levi’s Stadium, what is your first choice?
A: I would say my classic “GO-NINERS!” sign. They always excite the crowd.
Q: You are obviously in good shape. Tell us your exercise plan.
A: I stay in shape 49 people prepare for training. 49ers PREP was launched by the Bank of America to enable youth in the Bay Area to live a healthy lifestyle by participating in sports activities and cultivating the growth of student athletes outside the arena. We do various exercises for 60 minutes. Finally, we attended a dance party. I love to dance!
Q: What makes 49ers fans so special?
A: They are called loyalists for a reason. Even in an away game, you can find a sea of red and gold. Whether we win or lose, our fans always represent.
Question: Who is your fiercest mascot opponent? Why?
A: The Seattle Seahawks mascot Blitz. … Pooh!
Question: Give us the dishes inside. Are you good friends with other mascots? Is there a professional mascot association?
A: We are all very good friends. Although we may not agree on which team is the best, we actually get together every year to participate in the NFL Mascot Summit, where awards are given. I won the “Stunt of the Year” award in 2019 because I was riding a big Ferris wheel on a very curved street in San Francisco.
Q: Wow, this is impressive… So if you, Lou Seal (Giants), Stomper (Team A) and SJ Sharkie (Team Shark) get together for dinner, what do you think you will discuss ?
A: If we get together for dinner epic! I believe we will discuss who will pay for the dinner.
Q: If you draft for the mascot dream team, who would you pick?
A: No. 1 Lou seal; No. 2 SJ Sharkie; No. 3 Swoop (Philadelphia Eagles); No. 4 Benny Da Bull (Chicago Bulls).
Q: You obviously like to be the center of attention. But how do you handle all the fame and keep your feet on the ground?
A: I have coach DC, my mascot manager, who keeps me humble and focused. You can contact him for appearances, or even my autographed items. DC will always support me. (For booking information and interesting facts, please visit [email protected]).
Q: If the 49ers need you to play at a critical juncture, which position can best show your skills?
A: I will play like Robbie Gould! I like to play football, and my legs are very strong. In fact, what shocked me was that I had not received a call from John Lynch (General Manager of the 49ers)!
Q: To be honest, your wardrobe—jeans and sweatshirts—is quite limited. Have you ever thought about going out of your house at Gucci or Brioni?
A: There is nothing I like more than wearing my Levi’s 501 jeans.
Question: There are men with long beards everywhere wanting to know: How do you make your beard so beautiful?
A: I wash it with shampoo containing gold flakes. Keep my beard soft and shiny all day long.
