Tim and I have season ticket to the NSC Minnesota Stars soccer games. We enjoy tailgating and sitting in the beer garden watching soccer with like-minded fans. This year was the premiere of the new NSC Minnesota Stars at the National Sports Center in Blaine. While the team doesn't officially have a mascot, the fans have unofficially named the Loch Ness Monster, or Nessy, the team's mascot (if you say NSC fast, it sounds like Nessy, get it?).
Nessy gave me an idea for an arts and crafts project: Nessy the sock puppet monster. I hand-dyed tube socks, stuck on eyes and nostrils, and sewed on ears. Viola! A sock Nessy was born!

Some fans created Vuvu-Nessys!
