Keggy the Keg

If you think about it, Keggy the Keg, the unofficial mascot of Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, is hands down the most relevant mascot in college sports.

Keggy is perenially ranked as among Dartmouth's finest anthropomorphic beer kegs. He came to Dartmouth in the fall of 2003, debuting at the Homecoming football game against Columbia University. [...]

Keggy was ruthlessly kidnapped from his home in the library of Sigma Nu and held hostage for several days (left), suffering one torn off eye and and a badly damaged nose. After a ransom note was sent to Keggy's Jacko creators, Hanover Police began a town-wide manhunt for Keggy's captors. He was eventually rescued (albeit suffering significant injuries), and after extensive physical therapy, he returned to his normal activities of cheering on Dartmouth sports teams. | Keggy's blog | Wikipedia entry - via Super Punch

This is crazy! I just read on Time magazine's website "One Day In America" that New Hampshire is the #1 drinkinest state in the union! 40 Gallons of alcohol per person consumed every year!!

I surprised he/she gets away with it. Most colleges these days are so anti alcohol that you can't even have beer on their campus grounds unless it is at an event where they get part of the profits.
Hey at least they don't have to worry about some group calling it a Racist & degrading emblem to their particular race.
