Boro Bear! In the Flesh! Or is that in the Fur? Ha!

Right, they said it will be a cold day in hell before I make two posts in a day, but balls to what they think - I have important news. If by 'important', you mean 'fully grown man dressed head to foot as a curious footballing bear'.

Yes, this is your chance to go to Stevenage and meet Boro Bear, the mascot of Stevenage Boro, without any of the attendant risks of being forcibly ejected from the stadium for pitch invasions and given a lifetime ban.

He will be at (gasp) Asda on Wednesday lunchtime between 11am and 1pm, (thrill) the Westgate Centre on Thursday afternoon between 1pm and 3pm and at (oh my giddy knees) Tesco in the town centre on Friday afternoon between 1pm and 3pm. If you're under 16 (and let's face it, you're not - that was such a long time ago that you can't even remember if you ever were 16),
you can get free tickets for Saturday's game off him. If not, you can just give him a big hug.


  1. Oooh Jim, I saw him Jim, I saw him! (Would probably have been better if I had realised that it was the Boro Bear but there you are!) lol Liz

  2. Ha, that's great! Did you just think that it was a perfectly normal, everyday, run-of-the-mill kind of GIANT BEAR until you'd read my post?

    Stevenage is getting pretty weird nowadays. Please send my regards to any other man-creatures you see around the town centre.

  3. Well yeah! You do get all sorts in Asda you know, not to mention the rest of Stevenage! Although I haven't seen any other man-creatures this week, but there is still tomorrow to go! (Have I overused the exclamation marks?!!!)

  4. Hey guess what? I saw the Boro Bear again today! This time he was at the train station. How lucky am I?! lol

  5. I had the privilege of seeing a Boro Bear in its natural habitat on Saturday: Broadhall Way. He sends his regards (if, by regards, you mean he just stood about a bit).
