Mascots

Kentucky 34 – Georgia 27. Oh, well.

But now we’re back to the subject of mascots. Thanks to Debbie LM for pointing out that the Hoyas of Georgetown also have a bulldog mascot, name of Jack. (“And what does Hoya mean?” Bernie wants to know.) So – can anyone think of more dog mascots in college sports? Please write in!

Sunday – Elvis gospel on XM/Sirius. We’ve got it on in the Porsche (an old and beat up Porsche, in case anyone’s forgotten) and we’re headed for Donut Heaven. Bernie says Elvis would have loved Donut Heaven. Also he says that Elvis had lots of dogs, such as Brutus (great Dane), Foxhugh (terrier), and Sherlock (basset hound). Foxhugh – what a name! So is Elvis, come to think of it.

    Thanks. I got a few other members of the family to buy it for that very reason. And they liked it as much as I did!

    Oh Chet, sooo glad you asked. We Hoyas (GU graduates) live for that question. A sports announcer asked that question when GU first appeared in the Final Four in 1982 (Basketball in case you wondered, Chet – not sure Bernie watches College Hoops.) The story goes that their switchboard was shut down because so many calls came in to answer that question.

    Anyway, Hoya is short for Hoya Saxa. Begun in 1920 when GU was once a great football power (don't ask about the team now.) the students cheered the front 4 with the Greek hoya ("what") and the Latin saxa ("rocks") to cheer "What Rocks! or Hoya Saxa!" So the answer to the question is YES!

    My alma mater, the University of Washington (the "Huskies") bears mentioning. "King Redoubt" is the eighth Alaskan Malamute to have served as the Husky mascot. He leads the football team out of the tunnel before every home game and wanders the sidelines during the contest accompanied by trainer Kim Cross and several of his children, who act as handlers. Looks like the current mascots predecessors were all males, as well. The U of Georgia site says their mascots are all males, too. What's with that? :-)
