Introducing ÆßÐÇ²Ê¿ª½±’s New Mascot, Blue
Message from Kool Kat to the ÆßÐÇ²Ê¿ª½± Community (as delivered at his retirement celebration during ÆßÐÇ²Ê¿ª½±’s corn roast on September 16, 2008)
Meow. After over 20 years of calling ÆßÐÇ²Ê¿ª½± my home, it is with mixed emotions that I am announcing my retirement.
I have cheered at hundreds of sporting events, and walked in many St. Patrick’s Day Parades, sometimes through wind, sleet and snow. But I have to say that overall, ÆßÐÇ²Ê¿ª½± has made my job easy; its teams often dominating every sport they compete in, and its fans encouraging them to countless victories.
For these reasons, I leave with my head high, and my whiskers wide.
But before I head south to my luxurious retirement condo in Florida, it is with great pleasure that I introduce to you my trusty replacement, who will continue the legacy of supporting the best college in the world. Please give a warm welcome to my bear friend, and your new mascot, BLUE!
