The last time the Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge competition for Montana was held in Missoula was back in 1998, and the host team is pulling out all the stops this weekend to make this a memorable event.
Really, GuySpeed? You are making this too easy. Pitting our lovable mascot up against some of the (dare we say...) unattractive school mascots is just simply too unfair for our rivals. First, it was Otto the Orange which lost by a whopping 84% of the votes, and now this week, everyone's obvious favorite furry grizzly bear is up against yet another slightly odd looking team spirit costumed characte
With a vote of 84%, Monte Bear sent the over-sized Syracuse orange mascot rolling back home with its vine tucked between its legs (orange's have legs?) and will move on to the next round in the March Mascot Madness contest.
I realize we have been a bit bracket crazy lately, but when we see our lovable Monte Bear in need of help in an online March Madness mascot duel, those of us with Montana pride can't help but rush to his aid.
When you think of pre-game ceremonies at WA/GRIZ stadium, what song do you think of? Thats right! "Welcome to the jungle"! It is the song that Monte triumphantly makes his debut too every home game. Well tonight you will hear this song again, as the Griz prepare to whop the snot out of the Northern Iowa Panthers...
