It is well known that in the vegetable kingdom, none is more respected than the fearsome asparagus. That’s why some William & Mary students were wise to nominate it recently as the school’s new athletic mascot.
William & Mary for decades was known as the Indians, but the school changed its nickname to Tribe in the 1980s, and now wants to revamp its mascot. Administration officials said Monday that more than 400 nominations have been submitted, and more than one person has voted for the asparagus. Asparagi?
