Mojo... Mascot
facebook.com/amsterdammojo

A lifelong Mohawks fan, Mojo became the team's official mascot in 2006. It's unclear how old Mojo is or where he came from, because he won't tell anyone. In fact, he barely says anything at all. It is believed that Mojo lost his voice cheering for the Mohawks after they won the championship in 2003. Since then, he has enjoyed livening up Shuttleworth Park and loves the between inning games and dances.

In 2006, right before signing on with the Mohawks, Mojo tried out for the second season of Dancing With The Stars. The producers of the show felt that Mojo was "too famous" and his presence would be "unfair to the other stars." The show instead picked ESPN analyst Kenny Mayne, who performed a disastrous cha-cha and was the first contestant eliminated. Since then, Mojo has made it a point to perform the Cha-Cha Slide at every home game to show off his superior dancing skills. Mojo always invites the kids and players to join in the on-field dances to show that he can share the spotlight. Players like Ricky Breymier (Pittsburgh) in 2008 and Rich Vrana (Marist) in 2013 have come on and stolen the show, but Mojo loves enthusiasm and loves all the fans that attend the games.

If you see Mojo at a game or around the city, be sure to give him a high-five for good luck.
