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!

Red Rooster Romp

Yesterday I got things started by destroying one of the favorite toys
that I received for my birthday…the Red Rooster. Perhaps its the
warmer weather, pent-up agression, or the desire to onery, but whatever
it is (maybe some of all three), I just felt the need to get my morning
off on the right paw via a little toy destruction. Perhaps you saw some
of it on Blue2TV: http://go.butler.edu/lifeatbutler/?pg=4731

My
dad decided to get a little footage of the massacre. In the first video
you’ll see me began to tear off the rooster’s appendages. You’ll also
notice how proud I am of my accomplishments.

In this next video, you’ll see that my dad and Uncle Kyle enjoy mocking me and how I take that out on my kill, or rooster.

After pulvarizing the rooster into a soggy slobbery mess, it was time
to head over to the College of Education for a freshman recruiting
event. Of course, I always enjoy being invited to a social activity, so
I was happy to mix and mingle with the guests. Unfortunately, I just
missed out on a piece of Papa John’s pizza and a cookie that fell of
someone’s plate and onto the floor.

Had I been
able to get my mouth around that pizza, the event would have gone from
good to great. Oh well, maybe next time I’ll be so lucky.

We had to
leave that event early to head downtown to the Scottish Rite Cathedral
for a Rotary Club meeting that Bill Ervin invited me to. Rotary has
established a scholarship at Butler for the Student Sociology
Association/Butler University Chapter of the John Weidner Foundation
for Altruism. So the scholarship recipient was presented at the meeting
and I got to be the Butler ambassador on hand for support.

On
the way back to campus, I got to enjoy the spring air blowing on my
face as dad rolled down the windows for me. Once we got back to campus,
I took a long nap to rest back up, then went to work again on my
rooster. As you can see in the picture, I did pretty good for a day’s
work. In fact, I clearly felt satisfied enough to move on to my bone
(in mouth).

Today
things got going with a welcome party for a new staff member in the
alumni office. That was cool because they had bagels from Panera and I
got some.

Once I got settled in at the office , I got started
again on a little rooster activity. I finally got all appendages off
and went to work on the inards and stuffing. By the end of the day
today, the rooster is basically just a wet, floppy shell of a stuffed
animal. Job well done!

Later in the day I got to go outside for a
bit and enjoy the weather and some fun with my best friend Kirby. We
had a great time running around the campus mall and doing our usual
rough-housing. Good times.

I concluded the day with another new staff member party in the Office of Conferences and Special Events and a trip to the HRC for my dad’s workout.

All of that pretty much left me down for the count for the entire evening, both last night and tonight. It’s hard being me!

Tomorrow
should be another typical day in the office. I’ll find another stuff
animal to terrorize, try not to get too wet outside from the rain
that’s supposed to move through, and take a couple of naps. I also get
to go to the Dawg Pound end-of-year celebration to help hand out the
fan of the year award and other fun stuff.

I thought I would be
a good candidate for Dawg Pound Fan of the Year. After all, I did get
on the cover of Sports Illustrated wearing my Dawg Pound shirt! That’s
national Dawg Pound exposure! Unfortunatley, I don’t think I qualify
given my canine status. Oh well, I’ll let you know how it goes.
