V-Reds Unveil New Mascot

The Varsity Reds added a mascot to the arsenal last night - "Prospect".  He seemed to be a big hit with the younger V-Reds fans and is no doubt a reference to the V-Red Prospects program.  Welcome to the V-Reds, Prospect.

That's such a great idea! Speaking of which, what would have been your entry?

A squirrel would be better than this. You guys are losing it.

Myself and an avid UNB fan were just talking about Prospect and have a question. What about the other Varsity teams at UNB? Does this mascot represent them very well? This suit couldn't have been cheap. I guess the only thing that matters at UNB is men’s hockey. At least a Squirrel would represent all the varsity teams equally, don’t you think?

I have to agree that Prospect is going to look pretty silly at a volleyball or basketball game. (He already looks stupid at the rink.) Maybe he'll slip into a Speedo to promote the swim team!! It's apparent that hockey is #1 at UNB.

I think prospect was only the effort of those involved in hockey (including the prospects program)and nationals, and has nothing to do with the v-reds corporately. I'm sure if other teams wanted to organize volunteers and put forth the effort towards a joint mascot, the hockey team would be willing partners.
All v-red teams undertake initiatives for themselves from time to time. As for hockey being number 1, yeah, most schools have favorites.
