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!

Checking In With My Parents!

 

As I mentioned in a previous post, I am spending the weekend with my
Grandma and Grandpa Kaltenmark in Wabash, Ind. You see, my parents get
into this Indy 500 thing…in addition to working at Butler University,
my dad also works on a part-time basis for Vision Racing, so he’s
really busy on race day and my mom, well, she’s busy tailgating and
watching the race, so that kind of leaves me out. That’s okay, grandma
and grandpa have come to my rescue once again.

I skipped town
with the grandparents on Friday so I decided to check in yesterday and
send my parents an email to let them know what I had been up to while
in Wabash. My grandpa helped me get the message below all typed up and
sent…

Dear Mom & Dad,

I just want you to
know that things are fine here at Grandma’s house. These old folks
don’t play with me as much as I would like, but they try to make me
happy from time to time. I am not confined to the living room, but I
spend most of my time there.

Grandpa took me to the hardware
store this morning so I could meet Chris Kramer’s (Purdue University)
grandpa. People there were really impressed with me. One lady walked in
and said, “That’s the dog I see on TV all the time.” She called me a
movie star. A teenaged girl who works there said I was so ugly that I
was cute. I don’t know where she got the ugly part.

Grandma
& Papa went to some senior open houses this afternoon. One of his
football players asked Papa if he had baby-sat for me recently. Papa
said that I was at his house at that very moment. I wonder if some of
those football guys will come see me later. I liked going to their
practices with grandpa back in the fall.

I have a new trick I
like to pull on Grandpa. I acted like I need to go potty. When we get
outside I head straight for his car. Grandma thinks I’m homesick and
miss my Mommy.

By the way my barking gets an immediate response
from people around here. It is easy to get their attention and get what
ever I want.

Hope you’re enjoying your time at the track. I’ll be watching the race tomorrow in hopes I can see you.

I’ll be home Monday morning.

Love,

Blue

So
as you can see, staying with the grandparents is definitely all it’s
cracked up to be…treats, attention, car rides and getting really
spoiled. It’s a nice break from the normal routine.

I hope you
will join me in watching the 92nd running of the Indianapolis 500
today. It airs live on ABC at 1 p.m. (ET) and it should be a great
show. Remember to cheer on our driver, Ed Carpenter, driver of the No.
20 Menards/Vision Racing car…it’s bright yellow and easy to spot.
He’ll start 10th in his 5th Indy 500. Ed is a 2003 Butler grad and a
good friend. Go Bulldog (Ed)!

Ladies and Gentlemen, START YOUR ENGINES!

Blue II
