St. John's Also Excited About Ambiguous Weather-Based Mascot

Our college sports teams are rocketing into the 21st Century on a wave of aggressive, overcaffeinated, lightning-themed spirit creatures. Why is that bird looking at me like that? Is he smiling or mad? Get out of my soul, winged devil! » 9/22/09 5:30pm 9/22/09 5:30pm
