Butterfly-Lion-Ruler...It's always possible to get confused...especially if you are me...I get confused easily and this confession takes me back a few years...around thirty when I opened a business of decorating clothing with embroidery and screen printing.
We attempted to target high school sports programs with the thought that it was a business that repeated year after year. Create a customer, do a good job, make them happy and they will be back next year.
One of my first opportunities came when a local coach called and said he wanted some coaches shirts with his high school mascot and the school name embroidered on them. The school called themselves, "the Monarchs".
I had to attend a 3 day training conference so I gave the order to the young lady the I had hired to help me. She did a great job of getting some very nice polo shirts and getting the logo embroidered on the left chest. She was very proud of herself.
The only problem was that she chose the Monarch Butterfly as their logo and the school's mascot was a lion not a butterfly. The shirts were for the football coaching staff, a bunch of very macho men. Fortunately, the coach had a great sense of humor and he let us correct our error and replace the shirts.
Go Butterflies...no I don't think there is a football team in the world would call themselves the "Butterflies" but with the new rules coming down in the NFL, I wouldn't be surprised if all the teams were mandated to choose a butterfly as a Mascot.
"Ladies and gentlemen, here come the Baltimore Butterflies staring Ray Lewis"...sorry about that Ray.
