Tulsa FB Introducing ‘Dog Ambassador’
Starting in 2014, Tulsa’s Golden Hurricane will have a golden retriever to lead them onto the field for football games.
The school’s new “dog ambassador” is, appropriately enough, named Goldie. Because she’s still in training, she won’t commence her football pregame duties until next fall. However, she will be present for the pregame party prior to Tulsa’s September 7th home opener against Colorado State — after which her tenure as the school’s first live animal mascot in decades will begin in earnest.
Based on the football players’ reaction in the video above and the photos below, they’re more than happy to welcome Goldie aboard. Here’s hoping that she can eventually supplant the ridiculous Captain Cane as the school’s official mascot.
