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. https://guhoyas.com/sports/2018/6/6/trads-gu-hoya-html.aspx But to hell with it, I'm going with the Fighting Shrubs today. I may keep the Stonewalls handy for future reference though.
