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!

Media Hound

The first two mornings of this work week have been quite busy for me as
I’ve been in high demand with the media. Okay, I may have exaggerated a
little, but two media hits in two

On Monday the Smiley Morning Show, WZPL-FM 99.5
had my dad call in to do a follow-up on the news that was released over
the weekend about the arrest of suspects in the case of the missing
bulldog mascot costumes. Since we didn’t have to go in studio and I
don’t talk, I really didn’t have to do anything for this one, but sleep
in my office crate while dad chatted with Smiley, Weedman and Paul
Poteet. However, if it wasn’t for me, my dad would have never got the
interview, so I’m going to take credit it for that one anyway.

This morning we were invited down to WRTV-6
studios where we were stumping for Butler Basketball and the annual
RTV-6 Toy Drive on their morning show, Good Morning Indiana. This time
I was on camera, but given the early wake-up call, I wasn’t too lively.

Unfortunately,
my dad forgot to bring the camera inside, so I’ve nothing in the way of
photography to post, so if you didn’t see the broadcast, you’ll have to
take our word for it that we were on.

As I mentioned, we were
promoting Butler’s four-game homestand at Hinkle Fieldhouse which
starts tomorrow night at 7 p.m. versus the Ball State Cardinals. Show
up early to that game and receive a complimentary Pepsi schedule magnet
and keep your eyes peeled for a look at the to-be-named new bulldog
mascot costume!

On Saturday at 2 p.m. the Bulldogs will take
on IU-South Bend where the SemCycle uni-cycle team will perform at
halftime. Following that will be the Northwestern Wildcats on the
Wednesday before Thanksgiving at 7 p.m. and finally, next Saturday,
Nov. 29, we’ll host the Purple Aces of Evansville for the Toy Drive
game. Bring a toy to Hinkle Fieldhouse for that game and receive a
ticket for admission to the game. In addition, my canine friends
America’s Best Frisbee Dogs will be performing at halftime for that
game, so you’ll definitely want to check that out!

If
you saw the RTV-6 broadcast this morning, then you saw my nervous
energy get the best of me when I started chewing on my leash. That
could have been avoided had they let me use the prop that I brought,
but there just wasn’t enough time in the show to make it work.

To promote the Toy Drive, my parents brought a wrapped Build-A-Bear (my
favorite, no plastic eyes, no beads for stuffing, and just as cheap as
Target or other stores) for me to open on-air. They thought it would be
hilarious and a lasting reminder for viewers as I do not take opening
gifts lightly.


Since
I didn’t get to open it on-air, before I left I stopped by the RTV-6
control room where the folks there got to watch me open it so it wasn’t
a completly lost cause. So I guess for getting up so early I got a new
teddy bear…that’s a fair consolation, I suppose.

For the
remainder of the day I think I’ll just stick to chewing on my new teddy
bear and resting up. In addition to the game tomorrow and the
subsequent men’s games over the next several days, I’ll also be at the
women’s home opener on Friday, Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. versus the Dayton
Flyers, so it’s a busy week for me to say the least.

I hope to see you at Hinkle Fieldhouse over the course of the next two weeks. I’ll be there quite often and I hope you are too!

Go Dawgs!

Blue II
