Music Monday: Butler War Song

So I’ve been spending my first day home from Butler YouTubeing Butler videos, lame I know, and have been catching up on all my Butler news in social media. I’m getting Butler withdrawals already! I’ve also probably been getting the Butler Blues (no pun intended) since I’m not going to be on campus next semester because of my internship.

While on my YouTube spree, I stumbled across this precious video of the dearly departed Butler Blue 2. The video shows him waking up when the Butler war song plays and it’s very funny. But who can blame him? It’s a catchy tune!

Remembering Blue

Since I didn’t get to blog about it when it happened, today I wanted to blog about Butler’s dearly departed mascot, Blue 2. Blue died earlier this month and it definitely took campus by storm. Everyone’s Facebook and Twitter statuses were filled with grief but also gratitude toward Blue for being such a faithful mascot for so long.

There was a memorial held for Blue in the bookstore with a painting of him and a slideshow showing photos of him from when he was a puppy. I must admit, even I almost shed a tear while looking at it. I regretted having never gotten a photo with him so I’ll be sure to get one with Tripp as soon as possible.

Although it’s sad that Butler is mourning an icon, it also serves as an opportunity for Butler’s newest mascot, Tripp, to step into a leading role now and be the bulldog that raises the spirit of campus. Can’t wait to see him in action!
