WuShock: A True Original

WuShock: A True Original

If the Jayhawks couldn’t be in the Final Four (much to the dismay of the huge Kansas basketball fans in this Iowa household), there is some consolation in seeing the Wichita State Shockers make it to the Final Four  – along with one of the sports world’s stranger mascots WUShock – which for the uninitiated is a figure based on a shock (or bundle) of wheat!! (“What is THAT?” I remember thinking when I first moved to Wichita in the late 1980’s for a job on the local newspaper.)

Go Shockers!
