William and Mary New Mascot: Asparagus!

There have been many colorful mascots over the years on college sports, but I bet you never thought you'd see an official mascot made of asparagus!

After a painstaking search for the most reoresentative mascot for their hallowed institution, William & Mary college somehow settled upon this humble vegetable as the embodiment of their school spirit. This may seem a strange choice, but if it's between that and yet another demeaning Native American-themed mascot, I heartily endorse this random vegetable without hesitation. Go asparugus go!

William and Mary New Mascot: Asparagus!

Go spears, go! That could be a new chant for College of William & Mary students, if administrators approve an asparagus stalk as the school's next mascot. Known collectively as the Tribe, the sports teams of the Williamsburg, Va., school have been without furry representation since a 2006 NCAA ruling eliminated its feathered Native American logo, the Associated Press reports. Since April, the school has solicited suggestions for a new mascot. Submissions close on June 30.//

Asparagus....? How lame. Besides, asparagus cannot defend itself.
No, go with the times and have an inter-racial bisexual, pro-Muslim/anti-American/Heil obama couple, replete with tattoos and body piercings.

That mascot name sucks,how about the Minute Men, or the Colonials,but Asparagus, Pat and Agnes Pascall would go nuts over this.

If they are going too change the name of William & Mary mascot,then they need too change D.C.'s Team name, Redskins!!!

Scottsdale Community College in Arizona has the Fighting Artichokes. I still have my mug & key lanyard with the mascot on them from when my daughter attended. Go Veggies!

I attend WM and they have yet to name a new mascot. Most people here hate the suggestion of the asparagus and the likely hood of it being chosen is incredibly low. A wren is much more likely, as is a WASP.
