Daaa Bears

October 14, 2010

Well, it’s official. We Are…Ole Miss. And our new on-field mascot is a Black Bear.          

For better or worse, that’s who we are going to be. As much as I was sad to see Col. Rebel go, I ready to finally move on. I found this really funny and hope that the Rebel fans will embrace it and not get stuck on what’s long been gone. As many of you know, the University of Florida mascot Al has a female friend (Alberta) who frequently accompanies him on the sidelines.

We really need to have a Mama Bear to keep him company. This would really complete the picture (for me) and be a huge money-maker for the female Rebel fans. Undoubtedly we will have a lot of fans make fun of this move for a number of years, but it will eventually die out and our children won’t remember a time without the Bear. I’m pretty indifferent, but am glad that a decision has finally been made. Admiral Ackbar had lasers, but this bear would have made pretty short work of him in close quarters.
