[BLEEP] YOU, MASCOT! The Ramblin' Wreck



Ah, the Ramblin' Wreck of Georgia Tech. Nothing says you're a forward looking institution like a nearly 80 year-old motor vehicle as a mascot. The Ramblin' Wreck is a 1930 Ford Model A Sports Coupe. I'm sure that it was the state of the art back in the day. Sadly, that day was when Bobby Bowden was a year old (if that. He was born November 8, 1929).
Do you realize how old the Ramblin' Wreck is? It's four years older than Donald Duck. It's eight years older than Superman. It's six years older than John McCain, for crying out loud!
Not to go Colin Cowherd and dismiss everything that existed before ESPN, but you would think Georgia Tech would want to do more to show itself as a forward thinking organization. Then again, it was responsible for this ad that ran during the broadcasts of Tech football games this year:



Of course as anybody could tell you, the Space Shuttle is 30-40 year old technology. I think my iPod has more computing power than the shuttle's computers do.
