Traveler vs. Bevo

Traveler vs. BevoThe L.A. Times’ Bill Plaschke and David Wharton break down the all-important battle of the mascots at the 2006 Rose Bowl — Plaschke describing being constantly horrified in Bevo’s presence, David Wharton gets personal and asks Traveler where he lives.

A few interesting factoids from the two articles:

  • This is the 14th Bevo that the Longhorns have had. And USC is on its 7th Traveler.
  • Bevo XIV’s real name is Sunrise Studly.
  • Traveler has been ridden by celebrities including Salma Hayek (and Fabio!)

Sure, these might be what you call “Sunday fluff pieces”. But quite honestly, I’m just happy to read a piece about the game that doesn’t talk about Reggie Bush going pro or how the 2005 Trojans would have done against a team from the 1950’s.
