Mascot Mania

Front Cover
Betty Burdett, Sabrina Barlow, Damien Carey
Texas Review, 2005 - Education - 147 pages
We've all heard that in Texas, high school sports are a religion. What is a religion without Spirit? This book takes a look at the Spirit behind the high schools of Texas--the Mascot that represents each school's "religion." We've discovered that Texans have everything from Bulldogs to Buttons and Panthers to Punchers to bolster team morale and liven the voice of the crowd. Laugh out loud as you peruse the origins of the zanier mascots, and feel that remembered surge of pride when you meet and read about the symbols we all grew up with.
