I grew up in North Dakota where I attended a rural school grades K-12. Our school was built in the mid-60's to consolidate the area's small town schools. School founders chose the mascot Corvairs, which is a car that is no longer made. Our junior varsity team was the Corvettes and the junior high team was the Comets (another obsolete car). Drawing cars for team spirit posters was always interesting, to say the least. That's why I was very entertained when I read this list of school mascots. Note the Colorado mascots: Brush Beetdiggers and Rocky Ford Meloneers.
