In elementary school we were the Bears. Blue and Gold, go Bears. Woohoo. While, the real grizzly bear is very scary, frightening, and the source of 90% of my nightmares (I am simply terrified of bears beyond belief) the actual mascot is.....a little strange. Take a look. See the odd eyes and clumpy fur? It's certainly not the best replication of the bear, that's for sure.
In as you can see, the second picture is of a viking. But could we be the vikings? Noooo. We were the Raiders. And even though the picture is really small, I can tell you this from experience. Our raider is a cute pudgy little viking with a shield and a huge smile. Really people. That's not a raider from my experiences.
But the oddest is this little fireball that we call the Red Riot, which is the mascot of our high school. Look at him...the eyes....the arms....the mouth.....the NOSE. Seriously. What is up with the face of this poor creature? It's rather sad.
But whatever I think of the mascots of the various schools I've been to, I sure am glad I don't have the mascots of these colleges!
