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!

My Raider Romp

 

Remember the Wright State Raider that was lurking near my cage yesterday? (See post below for visual.) Yeah, he got dealt with…

Here’s hoping my fellow Bulldogs do likewise on Thursday evening (9 p.m. EST) at Hinkle Fieldhouse.

By
the way, no actual Wright State Raiders were physically harmed in the
making of this film. All harm was inflicted figuratively.

And
yes, Wright State considers the “Raider” to be a wolf. I don’t get it
either. Perhaps the Wright State Mangy Dingos would be more descript.
They actually changed from a red-bearded Viking to a wolf. The wolf is
now known as “Rowdy Raider.”

Here’s a picture of WSU’s current (middle) and former mascots…

I
see why they switched from the crazy-eyed Viking. That thing is sure to
scare all small children. I believe that to be what a suspect sketch
artist would draw if you said the criminal resembled the off-spring off
a Keebler Elf and one of Willy Wonka’s Ump-Lumpas. (Sorry, that’s the
best I could come up with this close to bed time.)

Regardless,
somewhere Wilbur, Orville and Ovid are sitting around a table, smoking
pipes, wearing distinguished suits and asking each other who came up
with “Bulldogs” and “Raiders.”

Oh well, at least WSU’s “guy in a
suit” actually resemlbes their mascot…which is more than we can say
for a certain school in Des Moines, Iowa. (For visual, see post
below…again.)

Enough about the Raiders, let’s just settle this on the court Thursday night.

In case you missed it, I was featured in Sports Illustrated.com’s photo account from the Bulter/Drake game this past Saturday.

Also, mad props to A.J. Graves and Drew Streicher for
being named to the 2008 ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America
University Division Men’s Basketball Team, chosen by CoSIDA (College
Sports Information Directors of America). The two Butler
student-athletes were among 15 players chosen to the honor squad, and
Butler was the lone university to have more than one player selected!

Nice
work fellas…not only can you challenge opponents in a game of hoops,
but you also can dominate in the occasional standardized test-off.
Clearly old “Dawgs” can learn new tricks!
