But who is the real Lou Seal?
We sat down with your favorite mascot to get the scoop.
Q: Hey, Lou Seal
Everyone has been wondering where you are from.
LOU SEAL: I was born on the Farallon Islands just west of the Golden Gate Bridge and I grew up right here in San Francisco.
Currently I live under the Lefty O'Doul Bridge in the China Basin district of San Francisco.
I love this spot since I'm swimming distance from the team's home, AT&T Park.
Being so close gives me more time to do what I do best - root for the greatest team of all time: the Giants!
Q: Do you come from a large family?
: Yeah, I come from a very large family.
Us seals mature pretty quickly so I have a lot of relatives that I've never met -- until I became the Giants'
Now I have uncles, aunts, cousins and nephews coming out of the woodwork asking me for tickets and stuff.
Q: Are your parents proud of you?
: My parents are extremely proud of me!
: Yes I do!
Yet I always make sure I brush my teeth three times a day.
My whiskers make great dental floss!
Q: How did you become such a huge Giants fan?
: I'm a San Francisco native and the Giants
are in my blood!
: Oh yeah!
Because of my great-grandfather, the original San Francisco minor league baseball team was named the San Francisco Seals.
As Grandpa told it, the original owner was walking along Pier 23 trying to think of a name for his
A burst of wind came and blew his
cap off his
head and into the Bay.
My great-grandfather retrieved it with his
nose and gave it back to the man. From that moment on, they were called the San Francisco Seals!
At least that's what my grandpa tells me.
It may be just a marine legend.
Q: So you must love your job.
: It is a dream job!
: I love making public appearances.
: They should wear a Giants
cap, bring their glove to the game and root, root, root for the Giants!
And don't be afraid to join Lou
in the conga line!
