I needed a light-hearted topic for today — been way too serious lately!
But I am not going where you might think!
High school mascots are often animals: Tigers, Wildcats, Falcons. Sometimes they mimic current professional sports: Patriots, Giants, Raiders, Cubs, Bruins. And sometimes they seem a little bit, well, odd. Like Maroons, Crabbers, Martians, or Nimrods (if you don’t believe me, check out this site).
My high school’s mascot was (still is), the Grey Ghosts. I always kinda liked it! I certainly never heard of another school who used it. When I was in school the pictorial representative looked a bit like Casper, but they’ve made it seem a little more ferocious since then. I can tell you we never had anyone dressed up like a ghost walking the sidelines at football games, although it’s been a long time since I’ve been to one, and maybe they do now
