The line “I used to be carried in the arms of cheerleaders” is 100% true.
The University of Cincinnati’s football team is unusual in that it has a human child as a mascot, rather than the usual over-sized elk or lion. At the start of each season, local families nominate their children to represent the team for that year. Being preternaturally cute, a four-year-old Matt won by a country mile. He was universally adored, and at the end of each game the cheerleaders would scoop him up for a celebratory lap of the field.
Bonus fact: with young Matt as their mascot, the team had the most successful season in their entire history.
I don’t care what you think about my choice in colleges. I’m proud to say that I attend the University Of Cincinnati and am proud to call myself a member of the Bearcat Marching Band.You may think this town is crap, but I was born and raised here and will be loyal to the red and black always.
