Dan and I had a conversation/argument last week about what makes a good high school mascot.
Dan favors alliteration (that trend runs thick through Davis County, from Woods Cross Wildcats up to the Layton Lancers)
I appreciate when a mascot reflects area history like the Jordan Beat Diggers or Lehi Pioneers.
But you can't beat a Provo High Bulldog. You really can't. Good old victorious Vic the Bulldog. He doesn't alliterate. He has nothing to do with Provo's founding. But he's a sturdy, trusty, adorable friend. Loyal to the end.
Now, it's your turn. What do you think makes a good mascot? What was your high school name and mascot. Did your mascot have a name? Is there an awesome mascot in your current town?
If you read this and don't comment you have no school spirit and you smell weird.
