Congratulations Zippy

Ohio dot com reports this afternoon that Zippy, mascot of the University of Akron, won Capital One National Mascot of the Year. Zippy defeated Goldy Gopher from the University of Minnesota in the final round.

The U. Akron community voted early and often, but no doubt the Minnesota faithful did as well. Clearly Zippy has garnered broader appeal.

Now if only the basketball team could get into the post season.

UPDATE: PsychoBilly puts it all in perspective.
