(1090 The Fan) — Ryan Asdourian’s day job is a position that many in the tech industry aspire to have — an executive at Microsoft.

However, it’s the executive communications manager’s side job that many in the Puget Sound region would want if given the opportunity: Blitz, the Seattle Seahawks’ mascot.

According to a report from Business Insider,  Asdourian has been with Microsoft for nearly a decade and has been moonlighting as the giant bird you see on the sidelines at CenturyLink Field since 2006.

It seems only appropriate that an employee of the tech giant is donning the uniform being that Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen owns the team.

Asdourian started with Microsoft as a test engineer and has been working up the ranks ever since.
