Miscellany: Crappy Mascot Masquerade!

Welp, the week so far started out real crappy. The KU fans at work came out from under the rocks to talk weak smack. I gave KU its cred, ate some crow, and told them to watch out for basketball this year. Michael Beasley is my boy! Even if it is for just one year. So, after ducking into my Yeti-cube, I needed a quick pick me up and found Bofa D’s Guide to Strange College Mascots.

Lil Red!

Yes, at least I can pour salt on the Cornhusker fans. Bofa says Lil Red looks like a Big Boy rip off but I say he kinda looks like a wang. I mean that in the most heterosexual way possible. Seriously, though, Lid Red is weak as a mascot. I can’t talk much, seeing as Willie the Wildcat is a cat head on a human body. But he does look a helluva lot tougher than any of the area mascots. Whatcha think?

Miscellany: Eating (and Listening) Good in the Neighborhood?

So I was out with my fellow Yetis from work at Applebee’s when low and behold we walked into what looked like an attempt and being almost sports bar-like. It was the one over in Overland Park by I-35. We walked in and they had big flat screens covering their inner bar area. Plus, they had ESPN, Fox Sports, and even the NFL Network on there! Granted CNN was on too but we’ll forget about that. The signal quality was bad so the pictures were kinda flakey.

Some regular vanilla type people palying with the Soundog

The other real interesting thing was the Sprox Soundog setup they had there. The Soundog was this little contraption on the tables that you turn on and then punch the number that correlates to the number on the flatscreen and you can pick up the audio for it. It’s a pretty neat idea but for real sports bars, it might be drown out by the game of the week playing over head. At least it makes a pretty cool fart noise when you first turn it on and keep it real low.
