Secret Service Once Threatened to Kill Mr. Met: "We have snipers all around the stadium, just in case something were to happen. Like I said, do whatever it is you normally do. Nobody will bother you. But approach the president, and we go for the kill shot. Are we clear?" -- Secret Service agent in 1997 to Mr. Met, as related in Yes, It's Hot in Here: Adventures in the Weird, Woolly World of Sports Mascots
