A Green Stuff is Making Me Blue

Ok, I'll admit that I might just be suffering a bit from the loss to the Celtics last night, or more accurately, I'm still a bit raw about the number of Celtics fans in attendance. But seeing all that green in the audience made it all the more noticeable that our very own most loved mascot (except for me of course!) is actually the same color!
Can someone explain to me why Stuff has to be green? Could Stuff not be a blue dragon? Wouldn't it make more sense if the mascot had a similar color scheme as the team? What's that you say? There is no such thing as a blue dragon? Only green dragons? Oh, my bad, I forgot that mythical creatures only come in green.
Or maybe he's green in keeping with the play on words of "Stuff the Magic Dragon" instead of "Puff the Magic Dragon" who was green. But come on, that song is well known to be a metaphor for um, well, some other green "stuff." So, shouldn't a fan friendly mascot such as Stuff want to distance himself from such associations.
So, call me crazy, rail away at my audacity for even suggesting something so sacrilege, but I think it would be great to have a blue Stuff.


  1. Not to mention the fact that, traditionally, green dragons had breath of acid, where as blue dragons had breath or electricity. This lightning breath would have fit much better into marketing schemes.

    Yay for D&D!

  2. "I painted a blue duck because I've never seen a blue duck before."

  3. I once saw a Blue Dragon while cliff diving off the shore of Costa Rica. Then again, I was smoking peyote a lot back then.

  4. Outstanding Point! Unveal the new stuff for the playoffs, the Magic should support it because they can sell all new stuff dolls and merchandise.

    Why should the fans wear team colors when the Mascot doesn't??????????

    Heck we should start an online petition on this one!
