    We might have reached peak look-alike. We now have teams that will be going through their third and fourth LAL treatment in the coming weeks. I'm going to try and keep things as fresh as I can, but there might be some ideas that are just way out there.

    Like this one.

    I've already done a proper thread and a DC politician thread, so this time I decided to keep up with mini-theme of the season about weird mascots. Sure, Jack the Bulldog is their mascot, but officially they are the Hoyas. For the last 44 years (yes, I'm old), I simply just assumed that "hoya" was some sort of uppity word bulldog. Boy, was I mistaken...


    Apparently, a Hoya is a climbing or sprawling evergreen shrub with ornamental foliage and waxy flowers, native to Southeast Asia and the Pacific and grown as a greenhouse or indoor plant. Yeah, the Georgetown Fighting Asian Shrubs. Wow. Mind = blown.

    Of course, to save face, the official explanation has something to do with Stonewalls (is that really better?) and Latin.


    But to hell with it, I'm going with the Fighting Shrubs today. I may keep the Stonewalls handy for future reference though.

    When you go out there, you shoot for way out in right field with a tennis puck! ;) It was funny and disturbing at the same time! I was chuckling the whole time though...

    What’s even funnier is imagining a Georgetown fan coming to the site for the first time, seeing the look-alikes and wondering, “WTF?”

    Flora and Fauna. Hmm. Perhaps some weed got in there?
