A-10, Blue Blob, Call Me Maybe, Carly Rae Jepsen, Chris Mack, Xavier Basketball
Do you think when Carly Rae Jepsen released her infectiously annoying bubble gum single “Call Me Maybe”, that eventually middle-aged basketball coaches would be releasing parodies of her breakout hit with a muppet riding shotgun? I’m guessing the execs at Interscope Records didn’t plan for this.
Literally like a week ago, I was gently urged not to make fun of opposing teams this season, but come on! I agreed at the time, but come on! Must…resist..urge…aaaarrrrrrggggg!
In all seriousness, Chris Mack is obviously a cool dude who doesn’t take himself too seriously. I applaud the effort, even if I decry the song choice. I’m hearing Anthony Grant is planning to release his parody of Rebecca Black’s “Friday” the end of the week.

A-10, Atlantic 10, Blue Blob, Charlie Sheen, Xavier, Xavier Blue Blob
I was totally on board with this move to the Atlantic 10 before today. But while browsing through this A-10 guide, I found out that this is Xavier’s mascot? What is the Blue Blob? He looks like the redheaded stepchild of Grimace. It’s as if Cookie Monster and the Philly Phanatic had a love child. He looks like a bean bag chair with hair. I’m not sure we can go through with this move now. I just can’t deal with this. My mind has been blown.
Xavier’s Blue Blob
Geez, Xavier. You’re the Musketeers, the least you could do is dress a guy up to look like Charlie Sheen in The Three Musketeers.
