Go Eagles!

When I walk the kids home from school, we pass a flag outside one of our neighbors' homes that reads, "Go Beavers." Not too rare in our neck of Cascadia to see a Beavers flag. DQ asked me what the flag said. So now whenever we pass it, she says, "Go Beavers go!"

Since this would dismay her grandparents, both alums of the rival University of Oregon, I had to teach her "Go Ducks Go!" too. Then she started extrapolating... Go Moose! Go Zebras! Go Rhinos!

Then, at breakfast this morning, "Go Turtles!" Her daddy quickly corrected her. "We never say Go Turtles, honey."

You should get her a University of California Santa Cruz t-shirt. Their mascot...the mighty Banana Slug.

Go Slugs!! Take that Daddy :)

Or how about the Evergreen State Geoducks? (pronounced Gooey-ducks for you non-Cascadians).

Although one may fear the turtle, one never actually says, "Go, Turtles." Rather, "Go, Terps."

But we never say that, either. Something you and I (and the rest of the ACC) can agree on.
