You know it’s going to be a good day when you get to quote Yosemite Sam on the sports page.
The mascots of two of Region 1A West’s final four teams are colors, and if you ever thought coming up with a caricature of a Tide is difficult, try personifying Blue or Maroon. George Wythe created a scowly-faced toughie, fists clenched, in rolled up sleeves and a toboggan – a longshoreman, maybe? – to represent its Maroon. Well played, George Wythe.
