Ragnar loves his peeps, especially his Mom – my sister Rosemary

Regular readers of Balladeer’s Blog are familiar with my sister Rosemary’s dog Ragnar. Since he’s a Terrier he offered to give his expert opinion on the football helmets used by college teams with Terrier names.

wofford terriers helmetSchool: Wofford College 

Team Name: Terriers

Ragnar Says: Wofford hasn’t used this particular helmet design since the late 1980s. They’ve been using incredibly boring BLANK helmets instead. Now what kind of message does that send?  

Highland ScottiesSchool: Highland College

Team Name: Scotties

Ragnar Says: How can you not love this helmet? That handsome fellow is wearing his game face but still conveys what lovable and irresistable scamps we Terriers are.

Carnegie Mellon Tartans helmet with terrierSchool: Carnegie Mellon University

Team Name: Tartans

Ragnar Says: Now THIS is what I’m talking about! A splendid profile and an overall eye-catching helmet. Best of all the Tartans are STILL using this gorgeous, gorgeous helmet! I want to strap that baby on and hit the field!

Hiram Terriers helmetSchool: Hiram College 

Team Name: Terriers

Ragnar Says: This is another sad case where a perfectly good helmet logo of a Terrier in profile gave way to incredibly boring helmets. No Terrier pic, no National Championship either. Coincidence? I think not!

Boston University TerriersSchool: Boston University

Team Name: Terriers

Ragnar Says: Now come ON, Boston University! You guys just embarrassed yourselves with this half-assed effort! No wonder your football team is now defunct. Child, please!
