    Berkely must have been winning. That'd drive any tree to drink.

    They actually make fun of this incident all the time on the Adam Carolla morning show in L.A. The guy who plays "Drunk Girl" on SNL comes in and plays Drunk Tree Mascot Girl on the morning show. It's hilarious.

    If you had to dress up as a tree, you'd probably want to get drunk too. It's not even a good looking tree...that must be the cheesiest mascot I've ever seen! Did her mommy make her costume for her? :rofl: I guess that's why she's a FIFTH year biology student, because she doesn't have the intelligence to realize if she put the alcohol in her water bottle instead of in a flask, nobody would have given it a second look. :uhh:

    It looks like there was at least one attempt at a make-over. Here's the glamour shot:

    :rofl: Even with the giant smile, that tree looks sad. Apparently those smart students at Stanford aren't very creative when it comes to finding a mascot...or maybe that is creative, but more that it misses the mark a bit. What's their team name? Does the opposing team bring lighters to the game? :biggrin:

    I think the team name is the Cardinals. Go figure. Was a tree outfit easier to make than a bird suit?:confused:

    :rofl: That's even worse, that the mascot doesn't even match the team name. :rofl: A cardinal would be much better. At least it would have wings it could flap and do stuff.
