I often think that those heads must be heavy and the suits really hot. I wonder if they lose weight during the course of a game?

Ms Menozzi says November 19, 2009

I always feel so bad for the people in these costumes! LOL!

Interesting idea, though – do you have any particular reason for picking the ones featured here? 🙂

Happy TT…

Stephanie says November 19, 2009

How cute! I bet those things get hot though. LOL Have a great Thursday, Paige! *Hugs*

Fun TT! I love the mascots though they scare my kids half to death. I agree those costumes have to be hot! Happy Thursday!

Adelle Laudan says November 19, 2009

They're all great, but I think I like Boomer best! Fun list Happy T13!

Those are really cute! I didn't realize the Buckeyes actually had a mascot of a Buckeye (not sure why not, but there you go). My mom went to Ohio State, and she was gaga over the colors and stuff, but in a very subtle way she had. It wasn't til I moved to the Midwest (I was raised out on the West Coast) that I realize how nutso people are here over college ball.

I once had a Director of Finance (!!) show up in my office not five minutes after a comment that "I guess my favorite team is Ohio State. Not a big fan of football, but my mom went there, so …" He strides into my office, and he's like 6'1".


He was a Michigan fan.

YAY! Let's go Bucky! Umm…not that I'm biased or anything. *VBG*

(And did you know our badger at the zoo is named after him? LOL)

Alice Audrey says November 19, 2009

As soon as I saw Buckeye I thought of Bucky.

Love Brutus, he's got a great name. And Sparty too, always loved a guy in a skirt.
