New mascot could be positive change for Seward County Community College

Most people think that the mascot of the Seward County Saints is that funny looking guy in a robe outside of the bookstore. What most people don’t know, is that funny little guy is fact the mascot of the bookstore. It has recently been brought up that Seward County should adopt an official mascot. Polls were taken, and one of the most interesting ideas was that of a St. Bernard. When most people think of a Saint Bernard, they think Beethoven. When I think of the St. Bernard, I get an intense image of Cujo, that rabid dog from the Stephen King novel. Having a 200-hundred pound dog, with a foaming mouth, and deep red eyes — who would want to come to Seward County and play us? It’s probably pretty safe to say that when asked what is more scary, Cujo or Grumpy from Snow White and the Seven Drawfs? The majority is probably going to say Cujo. We don’t want a mascot that looks like something from Walt Disney’s sketch book, we want a mascot that is going to intimidate our opponents, and make them lose focus on the game. What better than something from the mind of the master of terror himself? The process of getting an official mascot is a long and drawn out process, that will be made longer by the rejecting of the St. Bernard. So why not nominate the St. Bernard and allow all students to vote yes, or no? Time is of the essence, and we need to adopt our official mascot while we still can. The world is going to end in 2012 so let’s get down to business.
