One of the schools up here has decided to adopt a new mascot.
I vote for Snowflakes.
I just think it catches the spirit of six months of the year up here, especially months when school's in session.
And it gives a sense of one of the major features of many folks around here, our whiteness--a place where three Lutheran churches at a major intersection counts as diversity.
Just imagine, the cheers!
Fear the fighting 'Flakes!
All your snow base are belong to us!
May the 'Flakes be with you!
There would be other advantages, too. For example, the football team could use the "blizzard" instead of the "blitz." Other teams wouldn't know what hit them.
And every student would be unique and special!
