Any compilation of bizarre college mascots always includes the beloved Sammy the Slug, official representative of the UC Santa Cruz Banana Slugs. But why choose the banana slug to represent your team?

Twitchy doesn’t often cover cricket, but there’s a lot of excitement today at the Indian Premier League, which is welcoming the newest member of the family: the Rising Pune Supergiants.
