Could someone re-title this thread to "Blue Devil MASCOT Injury"? I almost barfed when I saw the thread this morning on the list. I just finished reading the Zoubek article linked on the front page and so when I saw the title of this, I was like, "oh no, not AGAIN".
Seriously, I hope the MASCOT is going to be ok and it's nothing more serious than a sprain.
The mascot's headband messages are written on white tape which are removed after the game and are taped to the wall of an obscure storage room under Card gym where the band also stores instruments. It is quite bizarre to see hundreds of messages covering the walls. OOps...maybe this was supposed to be secret! It might make for an interesting Chronicle article though. Could be an interesting trivia game to match the phrases with the games!
I would LOVE to see a photo of that wall...
"you would have to be pretty big to carry that head, though."
Can't believe it took this long for someone to say "that's what she said"
The kid who was injured is a freshman who is in my fraternity. He tore his ACL and is on crutches right now. He's actually pretty depressed that he can't jump around and be a Crazie or a mascot for the game next week.
Oh, poor kid! I hope he at least gets a good seat for the 'holes game. That's a shame...
