Sleeping Tiger, Hidden Bulldog

In preparation of Butler's men's basketball NCAA Tournament appearance on Thursday, March 19, 2009 (12:20 p.m.) I thought I would offer up a little video illustration of how I think things might go on the court between the Butler Bulldogs and the LSU Tigers.

It just so happens that LSU has a nice little kitty named, Mike, who serves as their mascot. He's a friendly little feline and in this video, I wait until he falls asleep to rest up for the big day of our game and then I make my sneak attack. Just watch the video and you'll get the picture...

I hope that you enjoyed that little bit of home (or office) video. I certainly hope it inspires our real-life Butler Bulldogs to do the same on Thursday.

Of course, the game will be broadcast live on CBS and while you could watch it at home, why not join up with some fellow Bulldogs and enjoy the game? Fellow Butler fans are gathering all over the country to watch the big game and you should too! For a complete listing of the official viewing parties visit www.butler.edu/alumni.

Those Bulldogs in Indianapolis can gather at...
  • Moe & Johnny's, mid-town Indianapolis, IN located at 5380 North College Avenue.
  • Champp’s, downtown Indianapolis, IN located at 49 W. Maryland Street.
Here's to a great game on Thursday; enjoyed with Butler family and friends! Go Dawgs!

Before I sign off, I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick's Day! I'm not sure what the point of this day is, but people keep giving me a hard time for not wearing the color green. My name is "Blue." I don't do "green." Got it?!

In tribute to my "Blue II Facts" in the post below, I give you this statement of fact: Blue II was once pinched on St. Patty's Day for not wearing green...ONCE.

Finally, I leave you with another video in honor of this holiday. It comes from Mobile, Alabama and the subject of this news story is a leprechaun. It's now an oldie, but still a goodie and yes, this is for real. Even a bulldog mascot with his own blog couldn't even make this up. Enjoy...

May the luck of the Irish be with the Dawgs this week in GREENsboro, North Carolina!

Even as an LSU fan I was laughing outloud about your video depicting a bulldog attack a tiger and his house.

But, I'm almost positive that wasn't a real tiger. Therefore not sure if the video is a politically correct.

Should be a good game Thursday.

The Real Deal,

It should be a great game on Thursday! I'm looking forward to it.

Thanks for seeing the humor in that piece. It's merely fun, that's all.

Good luck to you and your team this week.

Blue II

If we ever play a team with a cardboard box as a mascot they'll be toast. Way to go Blue.
