October is also big time (American) college football month and another long tradition is me teasing S. about his college mascots. For context: Becky's house is big time LSU household (Louisiana State University mascot is a tiger (geaux tigers), my mom went to University of Michigan (home of the Wolverines), U of M's big rival is Michigan State (home of the Spartans), lots of my friends went to or have kids that went to University of Georgia (UGA mascot: bulldog), Georgia Tech's mascot is the Yellow Jacket (buzzzzz). See how this goes. Tough mascots, right? Fighting, really tough mascots right? That strike fear into their opponents.
What is S's mascot for the first college he went to for undergrad?
It's the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (Golden) Retrievers!
Watch out....they'll lick you to death (hee hee).
He didn't have any Golden Retriever gear so guess what he got for his b-day....(that's one stern looking dog there....)
Wonder if Miss Rosie is a big UMBC fan?
|Stella thinks UMBC stands for University of Maryland Bella Campus.|
Oh BTW, S's other mascots: Penn State Nittany Lions (now extinct) and University of Delaware Blue Hens (where do I start???)
While everyone else is enjoying college football, Morph and I will be reading new quilt magazines and sewing.
