Top 10 Mascots In Sports
Todd Van Ersnt

Mascots are a very essential part of sports. They give teams a single identifying factor that the crowd can cheer and get behind. Players come and go, but mascots are normally a staple that has lasted as long as the organization itself. Some mascots are great, some are cute, and some are just plain creepy. Here’s my top 10 mascots in sports right now:

10. Benny The Bull (Chicago Bulls)

Look at that face. How could you not love Benny the Bull? He's cute and does adorable antics. Chicago is just one of those teams that everyone knows but most people don't particularly hate or love. Benny makes me like them just a bit more.

9. Mr. Met (NY Mets)

That is one happy baseball head. He's not as creepy as the Cincinnati Reds' Mr. Redhead, and he's been around longer than the Atlanta Braves' Homer. I don't particularly like the Mets, but their mascot seems solid.

8. Super Frog (TCU Horned Frogs)

When your mascot is the Horned Frogs, that can either be a bad thing, or a really bad thing. TCU somehow made it slightly ok with their muscular Super Frog. He's kinda cute, kinda fierce, and fun to watch.

7. Ralph (Colorado University)

Can we just take a minute to appreciate the fact that Colorado University has a full grown bison run across the football field? Super casual.

6. Sooner Schooner (Oklahoma Sooners)

The Sooners just slightly one-up Colorado bison by driving a horse drawn covered wagon around their field.

5. Jaxson De Ville (Jacksonville Jaguars)

I wouldn't be a true Jaxson (someone from Jacksonville) if I didn't have Jaxson De Ville on this list. There are many things mediocre about Jacksonville, namely the Jaguars and traffic. The best thing about going to a Jaguar game is easily watching Jaxson bungee jump, zip line, and ride around on a Segway.

4. Bailey (Los Angeles Kings)

I don't watch a lot of hockey, but there's just something awesome about a lion riding around an ice rink on essentially a four wheeler.

3. Sir Purr (Carolina Panthers)

Like Benny, Sir Purr is just adorable. Just look at him. I'm also a bit biased because I like Cam Newton and he plays for the Panthers.

2. Chief Osceola (Florida State)

I greatly dislike everything about FSU (especially sports related), but their mascot is legit. How awesome is a guy riding around on a horse (named Renegade for the record) and then throwing a flaming spear into the middle of the football field? Well played, FSU, well played. I still don't like y'all.

1. Aubie and Nova (Auburn University)

I may be a bit biased about this one, because I am an Auburn fan. But Aubie is a great mascot. He's won the Mascot National championships 9 times (including this year) and was Capital One's 2014 mascot of the year. Nova is equally as awesome. Officially named War Eagle VII in 2006, Nova flies around the stadium before each game to the cheers and screams of countless fans. It's such a beautiful sight to behold.

Granted, there are tons of mascots in sports today (both official and unofficial). Some are cool, others creepy, and some just downright strange. But they're all fun to watch and help to pump up the crowd. These 10 listed just happen to be some of my favorite. Always remember, War Eagle!

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
