I've got a three year old daughter at home, and she's never been to any kind of Gophers game, but she likes Goldy Gopher. I may be able to manage the 9 am game against Marquette on April 10th (other games go up against nap times). I'd live her to meet Goldy Gopher, if he's going to be at the game, that would be great.

You've probably already got this scoped out, Rodent, but just a reminder from a dad with grown children: Expect the unexpected when meeting body characters.

You can e-mail goldy@umn.edu and ask.

She loves seeing Goldy on TV, but I understand that seeing a 6+ foot tall Goldy might be a different matter. I don't think she will freak out, but she might be a little scared. Her reaction to scary things is to sort of hide her face in my shoulder. That does on until I can explain to her what she is seeing. She was scared of someone in an Iron Man costume, but now she wants to watch Iron Man every night.
