Greg Rothberg is a 23-year-old in Staten Island, New York, who has been going to rock concerts dressed as Winnie the Pooh for seven years.
Rothberg has been to more than 500 shows dressed in the gold and red bear costume, but this ferocious fan doesnt hang back eating honey.
The pretend Pooh prefers the mosh pit, and hes been called on stage at least 50 times by bands like Story of the Year and The Starting Line.
And this Poohs no poseur Rothberg rides the subway, bus, and even the ferry in full costume, and doesnt care if people pooh-pooh his outfit.
Rothberg says, Sometimes they shake their heads, but I say, Im just hangin out!
Though hes still young, Rothbergs Winnie days wont last forever.
He says, I have no plans for retirement, but I cant be 50 and still doing this.
