The majority of my illustrious high school career was at Central Secondary school where our mascot was none other than the Golden Ghost. Yep, a ghost. Pretty intimidating, right? Well I guess they can’t be killed, that’ something… I can’t seem to find a picture of this little guy on the web, but unless they updated him since my time at the school he was definitely the opposite of scary. Wore a smile on his face from what I recall.
The high school I graduated from had the Raider as the mascot. Not that original, but you know who else was a Raider at this school – Paul Haggis. That makes it cooler somehow.
I never went to pep rallies or football games when I was in high school so I guess I never really cared all that much about school pride/spirit while I was in high school. Maybe if I did I would be all proud of being a ghost at some point. Meh.
