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.
