Why I Love Me Some Wichita State

D.E.L.I.N.O and the family DeShields witnessed the Wichita St Shockers mop the floor up with the Buckeyes, give the game back to them in minutes, and eventually prevail while dropping the proverbial deuce on brackets near and far.

Between my kids getting hopped up on the free Lemonheads and my avoiding the bread-based Staples Center treats, I fell madly in love with those scrappy Kansas kids.

Reason One - Their mascot.

From the NY Times - For the uninitiated, the team’s nickname is the Shockers, shortened from Wheat Shockers. The Shockers have a mascot, WuShock, which is a cluster of wheat with arms and legs.

He reminds me of my beloved Delaware Blue Rocks' equally as brilliant mascot - CELERY!!!

Reason 2...
