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!

Vote Green in 2008!!

Vote Green in 2008!

And
no, I’m not talking about all of those environmentally friendly
initiatives that seem to be so in vogue. Nor am I referencing the up
and coming presidential election. I’ve got nothing against saving the
planet, but Blue doesn’t do politics.

What I am referencing, however, is Butler Men’s Basketball player, Mike Green, (pictured) and his place as a finalist for The Bob Cousy Award presented by The Hartford.

Now he needs your vote! The fan voting section is now open, so vote for Mike at http://www.cousyaward.com/. And just like the former Chicago mayor, Richard J. Daley once said, “vote early, and vote often!”

The Bob Cousy (no
relation to the koozie [pictured]) Award presented by The Hartford is
given to the top collegiate male basketball point guard annually
spanning across all divisions within the game by the Naismith Memorial
Basketball Hall of Fame.

Congratulations to Mike for even being considered and best of luck with the rest of the season!

Speaking of the rest of the season, the Bulldogs are currently ranked 10th in the AP Poll and will take on conference foe, Valparaiso, this evening at 9 p.m. (EST) on ESPN2. Butler currently holds a two game lead in the Horizon League. Go Dawgs!

Say Cheese!

Another game, another photo opportunity. Your online edition of the Indianapolis Star (http://www.indystar.com/) again features my mug. Only this time, it’s post oversized bone pickup, unlike pre bone pickup shot from last game.

Once again, Heather Charles took the picture which can be viewed along with her other game action shots here: http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?Category=MULTIMEDIA

Ironically, the photo also accompanies David Woods’ post-game story which focuses primarilly on senior guard, A.J. Graves. You can read that here: http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080127/SPORTS06/801270373/1068

Why
is that ironic? Just see my post from earlier in the month regarding
the relationship between Graves and I. No big deal, just kind of
humorous. Congrats to A.J. for a game well played yesterday.

Speaking
of the game, the Dawgs punished the Flames of Illinois-Chicago 73-57.
Thanks to that and a loss by Cleveland State, Butler is back leading
the standings in the Horizon League.

Go Dawgs!

Like a Dog on a Bone

If you’ve cracked open your online edition of the Indianapolis Star at http://www.indystar.com/ and checked out the game recap info and photos from last night’s Butler men’s basketball contest against Loyola of Chicago, then perhaps you saw your’s truly.

Indy Star photographer, Heather Charles, captured me on my pre-game ritual charge to the Dawg Pound
to pick up my over-sized bone. That’s Butler student, Ty Anderson,
getting ready to make the hand-off and my old man jogging behind.

In case you were wondering, the Bulldogs dispatched the Ramblers 63-50.

Next
up are the Flames of Univ. of Illinois – Chicago at 2 p.m., tomorrow,
at Hinkle Fieldhouse. Come on over to campus for the game and you can
watch me make my run to the bone first-hand.
