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!

The World (wide web) Premier of Blue2TV

 Well, I must have been a good boy because I did end up getting to go
skateboarding on Sunday evening. As you can see by the video, I haven’t
quite got the concept down just yet, but I still love it. Like I always
say, skate or die, man!

My dad says I would love skateboarding even more if I would just focus
and ride the board in a forward motion. He might be right, but I find
it extremely gratifying to put the board in my mouth and run around.

For your viewing pleasure, there are a couple more videos of my skateboarding attempts on my YouTube site at www.youtube.com/butlerblue2.

Speaking of viewing pleasure, the webcam is all set up and ready to go, thus I present to you Blue2TV! That’s right, now you can view me live, online, Monday through Friday, during work hours.

Watch
me as I sleep, change positions, sleep, move locations, sleep, play
with students/staff, sleep, wander off, come back, and sleep some more.
It’s riveting lifecasting, for sure.

I feel like Matthew McConaughey on “Edtv,” or Jim Carrey on “The Truman Show.”

Although, my dad disabled the microphone on the webcam so “Blue2TV” is a silent broadcast. Perhaps it’s more like MTV’s “The Real World” meets Charlie Chaplin.

If we would turn the sound on it might become a real life version of NBC‘s “The Office“…only without the lucrative contracts and advertising dollars.

They
tell me that they are still working out some of the kinks…perfecting
camera angles and set up, etc. Also, I think they may be adding another
camera within the week so that I am just that much more likely to be on
screen when you log on. Great, can a dog get a little privacy?!

Happy viewing!

Blue II
