Puppy Love

Each week, the Blog will contain updates on the newest member of the Cyclones -- Maverick, the Wonder Dog! The adorable chocolate lab joined the team this morning, and has quickly become an official member of the front office staff. Maverick has his own cubicle during the day, and will be adding to the nightly entertainment at every Cyclones game. Check back in throughout the year to watch Maverick grow up with the Cyclones!

Remember trying to convince your parents to let you get a puppy when you were a kid? I’m sure almost everyone can say they’ve tried. Remember trying to convince your boss to let you get a puppy to bring to work? I think I’m in the minority on that one.

What originally began as a joke has actually become reality. The Brooklyn Cyclones have a dog. Maverick, the new addition to our front office staff, is a 6-week old Chocolate Labrador Retriever. He has spent his first day of work chewing, running, playing, and – for the most part – sleeping.

Maverick will spend his first few weeks of employment getting to know his new co-workers, and enjoying being a puppy. But after that, it’s down to business. (Did you really think Steve Cohen would tolerate more than a few weeks of sleeping on the job?) As a full time member of the Promotions Staff, Maverick will be taught all the important tricks of the trade. He’ll be out on the field this summer to help entertain the great Brooklyn baseball fans on a nightly basis, so be sure to keep your eyes out for him!

Although Maverick, like all other Cyclones employees, will have to keep a tough schedule this summer, there is one thing he can get away with that no one else can: sleeping under his desk. (I was going to say eating food off the floor...but some of my colleagues actually already do that.)

I'm pretty sure Ricky may have eaten off the floor before, so no Maverick will not be the only one. Love the guy already, though who is the one resposible for telling Ponte that the wonder dog magically pooped on the field??
