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!

A (new) View from the Corner Office

Sorry for my long delay in posting, but I’ve been a busy bulldog over
the past couple of weeks. Sure, I’ve kept my nose to the ground with
the enduring search for the missing Butler Bulldog mascot costumes
(more on that later), but I’ve also been helping my dad move our office.

Yep,
that’s right, I’ve moved offices at Butler, but this actually isn’t my
first move. We started in Jordan Hall office 11 and not too long after,
we took over office 13 where we spent the majority of the last four
years. But after a six year stint in the Office of Annual Giving, my
pops is changing roles in the development office and that has us moving
down the hall to office 16. I figure I’ll just ride his coattails
wherever they take me.

The move sort of had me a little nervous
and on edge at first, but once I got used to my food, water, cage, toys
and dad being in one spot, I became a little more used to the new
setup. Although I still get a little confused as to where I should
hangout from time to time. I miss my old pals down the hall in annual
giving from time to time.

The good news is that we are still in
the basement of Jordan Hall so it’s all familiar surroundings. And even
though we have smaller digs, we did get a corner office…even if it is
in the corner of a basement. And yes, it’s a basement. Don’t let anyone
tell you it’s a “garden level.” That’s such a joke.

It’s below
ground level, it smells like a basement, there’s moisture like a
basement and there’s those lovely insects and bugs that are often found
in a basement. Therefore, it is a basement…and it even has a lovely
1980s pink décor with worn grey carpet that might be older than my
father. Now you know why the development staff ventures OUT to see
donors.

Anyway, after my dad gets all of his pictures up on the
walls and it’s finally all put together, I’ll have him post some
pictures of our new office. Until then, you can always tune in to Blue2TV and
watch my live office cam. Whether or not I’m in view of the webcam is
hit and miss, but if you log on at the right time, you just might see
me. Click here during regular office hours to have a look: http://go.butler.edu/lifeatbutler/?pg=4724

Changing
bones back to the missing mascot story…I know that I said there would
be a sequel to the movie that I originally starred in, but I am not
really sure what happened to that second film. We did the shoot, but
the project didn’t make it out of production. Such is life in
Hollywood, I guess.


There
have been some developments in the case of the missing mascot costumes,
but I’m not at liberty to divulge any details just yet. I’ll be sure to
share the news once it is official, but right now I’ve got other
pressing issues anyway.

My life as a mascot has me doing some
interesting things yet this week and weekend. On Friday I’ll be heading
over to see our neighbors at the Christian Theological Seminary for
their annual “Blessing of the Animals” service. I like to go because we
get to be outside and I get to mingle with a bunch of other animals,
but other than that I don’t really quite grasp what happens at that
thing. My dad seems to get something out of it and he says that it
gives me a Holy blessing for another year, so I got that going for me,
which is nice.

On Saturday I’ve got a busy day on the
books…first I’m set to appear in the annual Circle City Classic parade
with the Butler contingent and after that it’s back to campus as the 2-1 Bulldogs host our first Pioneer Football League contest of the season against the dreaded Drake Bulldogs.
Of course I’ll be there to lead the team onto the field, but I’m not
quite sure about my new friend Blue of the Indianapolis Colts. The
Colts are away this weekend so I’m hoping he’ll be in town to lend me a
hand again with the mascot duties since our new mascot costumes have
yet to arrive.


Thankfully, the weather is looking good for my duties this weekend. A
look to the weather forecast shows signs of plenty of “bulldog weather”
for me to enjoy in the coming weeks. Fall might just be my favorite
season…it’s not too hot and it’s not too cold. It’s just right for us
bulldogs.

Speaking
of which, the ninth annual Bulldog Beauty Contest seems to be shaping
up nicely. We’ve got about 35 bulldogs registered with just three weeks
to go, which is more than where we were three weeks out last year when
we had our record turnout of more than 60 dogs.

Eagle Pack Pet
Foods, Inc. and City Dogs Grocery have been helping round up pries for
our participants and I think we’ve got another great event in the
works. If the weather cooperates, then the ninth year might be our best
year yet!

Well, I think that’s about all I’ve got to chat about
at the moment. I’ll make sure my dad doesn’t wait around another two
weeks before he posts for me again!
