Knee deep in a lot of work related distractions, so posting is very light (again), but there is an issue that needs to be addressed.
Our beloved "Classic" Charlie Cardinal has gone missing. My speculation is that he's been kidnapped and replaced by a goofy looking cheap imitator. They pictured us as rubes and thought that we'd be unaware of their deception, but no... this cannot stand. Photographic evidence discloses the deception...

Am I the only one that sees the difference? This is like when Bugs Bunny dresses as Pete Puma's relative. He looks kinda like a puma, but something is just off.
This is a travesty! Charlie "Classic" has been an institution at ol' Ball U. To think he can be slid out the door for the demented "New Coke" Charlie without our indignation is appalling.
We should seek, nay... demand justice for our fallen comrade. Much like the "New Coke" bungle made by the Coca-Cola corporation, this decision needs to be overturned. Rise with me to demand our "Classic" Charlie be restored to his rightful place at the sidelines of the next Cardinal game!!!Sign the iPetition
and fight for our beloved "Classic" Charlie!!!Update (09/12/2006 9:15 PM CT):
Since our little petition is picking up steam, I have set the petition to send to President Gora and Coach Richards of the BSU Cheerleading squad. It is currently set to send on October 1st, but can be adjusted. Any thoughts on others who should be included?
