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!

A Purple Valentine’s Day

 ll, another Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but I must say, I think
this has been the best Valentine’s Day I’ve exeperienced in my young
life. After all, the Butler Bulldogs defeated the Penguins of Youngstown State at Hinkle Fieldhouse last night to the tune of 89-73. A Butler game sounds like a perfect date to me!

However,
it wasn’t just the game, but what went on at the game that made this a
great V-Day…and it all revolved around the color purple.

Of
course, I know that the traditional Valentines colors are red and pink,
but we took those colors, added a little Butler blue and made purple
the color of the day in honor of Relay for Life’s “Kiss
Cancer Goodbye” campaign, which is intended to raise cancer awareness
amongst the Butler community, as well as bring in funds for the American Cancer Society.


Purple shirts were sold, the students participated in events, and the
“day of love” took even more meaning: fighting the cancer that affects
the ones we love. I even did my part and wore a shirt to support the
cause. That’s me and one of my HRC buddies, Hannah Muehlbauer, sporting our purple.


Other
than that, it was a standard V-Day. My dad served my mom breakfast in
bed (Frosted Flakes) while I slept. Then I woke up to give mom her
gift…a bulldog picture frame with dad and I in it, for her desk at
work. I got it for her because she can’t take me to work everyday like
dad gets to, so I wanted her to have something to remember me by when
she’s there.

She’s
a physical therapist at St. Vincent’s Hospital, which means she’s
rarely at her desk, but it’s the thought that counts. Having a mom as a
physical therapist is good, because sometimes those massage techniques
she learned in school work their way into my backside.

I didnt’ get my dad anything, because who gets their dad stuff on V-Day? It’s pretty much Mother’s Day part 2.

Other
than that, it was business as usual for the day. Eat, sleep, bark,
growl, yawn, back to sleep, then off to the basketball game.

Today, it’s pretty much all rest for me so I can gear back up for tomorrow’s game versus Cleveland State as well as the annual Alumni Day festivities. I can’t wait…I love game days!

I hope to see you in Hinkle Fieldhouse for the big game tomorrow!

Much Love,

Blue II
