I am the food gatherer tonight. Stef is with us. We called an order to the Lazy Dog. Sandwiches and other delights. Roxie rode shotgun and waited in the car while I picked up the grub.
I wore a Yale sweatshirt. It kept me warm and made me look a lot smarter than I am.
On the way back I tuned around on the radio. There was a lo-fi sports broadcast at the end of the dial. UC Irvine was playing Pepperdine.
Yale has a bulldog. UCONN, a huskie. UC Irvine is the anteaters¹!
I love that name!
A popular chant among UCI students during athletic events is “Zot, Zot, Zot!” Zot is the sound made by the tongue of the anteater in the comic strip B.C. as it flicks out to catch an ant. – Wikipedia
California has other unusual team nicknames. UC Santa Barbara’s team are the Gauchos. UC Santa Cruz, banana slugs.
I need something anteater to wear.
¹ – Are the anteaters? I don’t know. And should the “A” be uppercase? Are they actually, The Anteaters? Quick, someone get me an English teacher.
