A nice story from spring training. Baseball’s in the air, at least in AZ.

“Wonder what’s going on here?” Bernie says. “The Butler mascot, Blue Two the bulldog, is taking the tournament by storm but the UConn mascot, Jonathan the husky, isn’t even there.”

Bernie shows me pictures of both dudes. That gets me barking. I have to go outside on the patio. But from there I can easily hear Bernie on the phone. “Dom?” he says. We only know one Dom. That would be Dom Divine, the bookie. “What’s the point spread on the game? UConn by three and half? We’ll take Butler. How much? How about – “

And he names an amount. Whoa! I couldn’t have heard right.

Ephs?

Thanks to Debbie LM for her explanation about Hoyas, Chet Berne (yes, that’s his name, one of the greatest human names ever) for the list of dog mascots, and Carrie for raising the question of whether any of these dog mascots actually on the sideline are female and if not why not? Can anyone help on this?

Speaking of team names, Bernie played baseball for Army, which I know I must have mentioned, and they’re called the Black Knights. Admin went to a college where the teams are called the Ephs (“eeefs”, he points out, not “effs.”) Spence was privately educated, whatever that means, and of course I went to K-9 school, flunking out on the very last day. If we had a nickname I never heard it. The good thing about flunking out of K-9 school, where it just so happened I was the best leaper, is that that’s how I met Bernie. Everything’s been great since, so you never know.

Anybody else got some interesting team names? This is Thanksgiving week. I’m a little bit beside myself already!
