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!

Cardboard Box Destruction

 

An Anonymous reader recently asked, “Blue II–Why do you hate/destroy cardboard boxes?”

First of all, I don’t hate cardboard boxes, however, I have been known to destroy a few in my day.

I’m
not really a destructive dog. I know what’s mine and what isn’t. I’m
not one to chew up shoes or things around the house. I stick to my own
toys and leave much of everything else alone.

Except for the
cardboard box. When I see one, I can’t help myself. It’s just so much
fun to just let my canine instincts run free for a bit and sink my
teeth into that corrugated fiberboard.


I
don’t remember how that actually got started. I think just working in
an office environment kind of led me to that routine. There’s always
plenty of boxes around and sometimes I feel the need to let out some
aggression or draw some attention to myself, so it works.

Enough
talk about it already…it’s better if you can behold the wrath of
destruction on video, so I’ve posted one below. I went ahead and used a
“Drake University” box and pathetic stand-in of “Spike,” the Drake
Bulldog, for this rendention of box obliteration.

I used Drake in honor of Butler’s game against them on Saturday, Feb. 23 at Hinkle Fieldhouse, as a part of ESPN‘s Bracketbuster Saturday. You could easily insert any other rival or opponent.

Also, no Drake Bulldogs were harmed in the making of this video, but a cardboard box most definitely was.

I hope you enjoyed the video. It was my pleasure to make for you, trust me!

Speaking of videos, my dad says I’m going to be the subject of an Indianapolis Star video profile very soon. Stay tuned for details on that!
