Hangin' with the cheerleaders

October 12, 2010

Hey CAM,

It must be nice to hang out with the cheerleaders on the sidelines. When did you start such a sweet gig and how can I join you?

Cam’s response:

Well, CSU has had a spirit squad well before we became Colorado State University; we’re talking back to the Aggie days. I got here until the late 1940s and have been on the sideline ever since (before me, Peanuts the bulldog was the mascot – and trust me, he was a real dog).

1934 spirit squad

I found this photo of some dandy gents who were part of the 1934 spirit squad. I dig the “A” on the pant leg; I hope to see a pair or two in the bookstore soon (hint, hint).

But as far as people such as you joining the spirit squad on the sidelines, we have security to prevent that, so you’d best refrain.

Your mascot in horns,
Cam the Ram
