[BLEEP] YOU, MASCOT! Mr. C

Written by Juan Cena on Friday, March 05 2010 and posted in SWRT

Nothing says that you are a strong, formidable team like an old white-haired guy as a mascot. Vanderbilt University was named after Cornelius Vanderbilt, who donated had donated an endowment of one million dollars to the then-named Central College in Nashville (the school was renamed in his honor after his death). Vanderbilt was nicknamed "The Commodore" due to his interests in shipping and railroads, though he never served in the military.
Vanderbilt university adopted the name "Commodores" for it's athletic teams. The mascot designed to look like an 19th century naval commodore. Sadly, it's a pretty old looking commodore with gray hair and Elvis-like sideburns. Yeah, pretty intimidating. Stupid is more like it.
The white haired mascot really does nothing to promote the school as an athletic powerhouse. Mind you, Vanderbilt University has a lack of desire to be an athletic powerhouse in the first place. But honestly, The Commodores could do a lot better. How about a makeover where Mr. C looks more like Lionel Richie?


At least he'd be more relevant to the modern athlete.
If anything, Mr. C's white hair speaks reminds me of Cornelius Vanderbilt's most famous living male descendant, Anderson Cooper.



You can come up with your own joke on your own. I ain't touching that one.
