I initially hated the nickname of “The Beast” for the UCBeast. It seems forced. It brings to mind either a shitty morning zoo slot or some college-town sandwich shop that’s been in continuous operation since like, the mid-1960s and all their sandwiches have funny names and come with sprouts. The only reason anyone eats there is either because of tradition or that the 80+ year old owner is such a character, but the sandwiches are basically indedible. There’s wood-paneling in there and it’s not very clean. Yuck.
I forgot what point I was making, but I made this mascot for UCBeast.
