About Me:

Hello! I’m Blue2, the official mascot of Butler University. Just thinking back off the top of my furry head, some of the obvious things that come to mind are my appearances at Butler sporting events. Whether it's leading the football team onto the field, greeting the starters on the basketball court, doing my "tricks" during a timeout at center court, or serving as the halftime entertainment at a soccer match where I displayed my own soccer techniques, those are all great instances where I steal the show. Of course, there's more than athletic events, there's also the performing arts. I've been a part of the limelight at several events such as YMCA Geneva Stunts, YMCA Spring Sing and JCFA's REJOICE! where the students sang "Blue Christmas" and I came out on stage riding a sleigh with Santa Claus. I also make appearances at university/campus events for University Advancement, Admissions, Student Affairs, and much more. Basically, I do it all. If you are on campus, be sure to stop by my office and bring me some treats!

Mr. February

It’s no centerfold, but it is a magazine appearance nonetheless! For
you local Naptown and Central Indiana residents, be sure to pick up a
copy of the February Indianapolis Montly…on news stands now!

Flip to page 100 of this month’s pet-themed issue and there I am, featured as one of Indy’s biggest celebrity pets!

I
had to tell my dad that “celebrity pet” did not necessarily imply that
he was indeed a “celebrity” and I was his “pet”. He was crushed. I
think I bruised his ego a little bit, but after all, he is pretty much
just my manager/driver/servant. He works for me!

They mention that my parents are trying to teach me how to ride a skateboard like my “famous YoutTube counterpart.” They are referencing Tyson, the Skateboarding Bulldog. He’s one cool dude and tallented bully! I can only hope to learn to ride half as good as he can. Skate or die, Tyson!


My parents are trying to teach me to ride, and I am quite fond of the
board, but rather than ride, I enjoy strutting around with the board in
my mouth and biting the wheels. Their instructions are clear, but the
ability to focus has never been one of my strong suits. We’ll keep
after it, but I’ve got a long road ahead of me…pun intended.

You’d think I’d be able to use my celebrity status to get a guy like Tony Hawk or Rob Dyrdek to come give me some tips and pointers. Hey Tony/Rob, if you’re reading this, hit me up at blue2@butler.edu. Can ya help a brother out?!

If I had opposable thumbs and a free hand, I might even try the Marty McFly method
of skateboarding…just hitch a ride and let the gas powered machines
do the work. I wonder what would have happened if he got the skateboard
up to 88 mph. Heavy stuff, Doc.


Anyway, as the weather gets warmer, I’ll keep everyone up to date on my
skateboarding lessons. I’ll try and get some pictures and video of that
uploaded here as well. Should be good for a laugh if nothing else.
Until then, stay warm and cozy up to a nice issue of Indianapolis
Montly.
