Horse-napping

"Tech Beauty", September 20, 1963
Fun article on the tech horse mascots, which is a very cool tradition.  I didn't realize that each one had a different name (for some reason I thought they were all named "Midnight Matador"with a roman numeral after, a la Reveille or UGA).  I also didn't realize how many of these horses have been involved in tragic and sometimes fatal accidents.

Wow, it is the week of rooster bowl and there hasn't been any trash talk? Sad.

Hard to talk trash after reading that. Pitiful.
