CSULB’s New Mascot Search

I was told by a professor that whoever wins CSULB’s new mascot search, the people behind it won’t be compensated. An ad agency will pick it up to further develop it. Sad, considering all the things the mascot is going to be put on.

What kind of message does that send to the art students? I would never do that. Anyway, I like the sharks, krakens, and stingrays. I know the marine biology department is behind the sharks, considering all the publicity that surrounds The Shark Lab (Animal Planet, The LAist, Spectrum News). And I saw someone mention how sharks can tie in with Steven Spielberg’s Jaws (1975), but if I’m being honest, the school worships him enough.

BIG3 – Ice Cube’s 3-on-3 Basketball League

“After Kobe retired,” Ice Cube says, seated upstairs in Mendenhall’s roomy lounge, post combine, “I was like, ‘Man this dude scored 60 points his last game, but it’s over.’ And why? Because of the wear and tear of the NBA—82 games, plus playoffs, back-to-backs. I was like, ‘What can we do to still see these dudes play and take out the wear and tear?'”

Adidas

I’m all about my Superclouds and Cloudfoam Ultra sandals. And of course, the patented Superstar sneakers. I have a variety of them but I swear I’m not a sneakerhead. I’m just saying, this is an Adidas house.

The tags pictured are from a jacket I recently purchased.

For those who need to be schooled:

Adi’s brother, Rudolf, founded Puma. And before they were fighting against each other, they were fighting amongst each other for Nazi Germany.

Los Angeles Chargers Logo

The San Diego Chargers are now moving back to Los Angeles! The Los Angeles Rams now have a crosstown rival. The last time The Chargers and The Rams were both stationed in LA simultaneously was in 1960! And the last time LA had 2 pro football teams was in 1994.

Other headline: Is Chargers’ new logo the product of a Dodgers-Lightning hookup?
