Fresno State decided to update their mascot last year. They said the old gray Timeout looked, fat, lazy, and disheveled. And, with the athletic department’s new no-drinking policy, that wasn’t the look they were going for. So, they gave Timeout a make-over. He was trimmer. Taller. Meaner. More muscular.
He was also brown.
Fresno State alumni and fans weren’t pleased. Okay, that’s a generalization… me and everyone I know weren’t pleased. It just wasn’t the same old Timeout.
Anyway, Fresno State is trying to make amends by letting fans vote on the future of Timeout’s look. Unfortunately, we can’t get the fat, funny, beer-guzzling bulldog back, but we do have a chance to get rid of the brown Chip N’ Dale look alike.
So, do me a favor. Even if you don’t care about Fresno State (which you should) go here and cast your vote (which should be gray).
