Let's make like this tree

The Stanford Tree is quickly becoming my favorite college mascot. Sure, he lacks the cartoonish lovability of the Syracuse Orange, the staying power of the UGA bulldog, or the understated creepiness of Vandy's Mr. Commodore.

But what he lacks in traditional appeal, he more than makes up for in drunken antics.

He was busted for being wasted at a Stanford/Cal basketball game in February 2006 (he blew a .157), and then was banned by the NCAA a few months later.

I guess I can't be sure the tree was drunk (on gin, I'm assuming) in the photo above, but I'd like to think so.
