A group calling itself the International Brotherhood of Mythical Creatures has declared Kegasus, last year’s mascot for the Preakness InfieldFest, missing.
“The news of Kegasus’ disappearance has been devastating for the Brotherhood, as he sat on the Executive Board as the social chair. The IBOMC understands the great honor of having a member play the important role of Lord of the InfieldFest at the Preakness, the biggest party in the Mid-Atlantic region” according to a “news release” sent out by the group.
A phone number listed on the “news release” was answered by a voicemail for “Chupacabra,” the brotherhood’s leader.
The message instructs any mythical creature looking to join the union to leave a message listing their powers and previous year’s household income.
“Thank you and have a fanciful day,” the message concludes.
Last week, Preakness officials announced the for the 2012 Preakness InfieldFest, but conspicuously missing was any mention of the previous year’s mascot.
