Jobs in the mascot world don’t get any bigger than this. The Denver Nuggets are looking for someone to don their famous mountain lion costume and become the next Rocky!

On June 25, Kroenke Sports and Entertainment posted a job description for a “mascot performer.” Although it doesn’t exactly say you’re apply to be Rocky, the description basically does.

“As a mascot performer for KSE properties, you will be considered a world-class performer and ambassador for our sport property at all home games and public appearances,” the listing says.

It also requires a person to be between five-foot-five and five-foot-nine, have prior mascot experience, tumbling, flips, dunking off a trampoline, stilt-walking and comfortability with heights.

Oh, and the listed salary for the position is $70,000 to $130,000 annually. We’ve all heard the rumors that Rocky collects over $600,000 a year, but either that was just for the last guy or it was all just made up.

Apply here.
