We had a special visit this afternoon from Butler University Mascots, Blue II & III (aka "Trip"), who were in town with their basketball team for a game against Washington, D.C.'s own George Washington University.
And while it was too late for them to get in on our National Pet Radio contest, these handsome devils were itching to show their NPR love (so excited, in fact, that they could barely sit still).
Blue II and Trip have caused quite the stir around the capital for making the ultimate diplomatic move - crossing university lines for a photoshoot with Georgetown's bulldog mascots Jack and Jack, Jr.
Surely these aren't the the only school mascots who love NPR, right?
