Let’s figure this out together: so Florida State, known as the Seminoles (as in ‘Seminoles,’ not to be confused with ponies), now has a horse suit for a mascot?
The Seminoles are actually keeping their Native American Chief Osceola but have announced the addition of “Cimarron” (as in a horse, not to be confused with a popular cinnamon roll). Cimarron apparently existed as an FSU mascot during an era known as no-one-remembers-this-at-all, and has been reintroduced.
Cimarron has his own Twitter account, will make his presence felt at upcoming Florida State sporting events and is also available for birthday parties (I made that last one up – but he should be).
FSU released a statement explaining, in part:
“Cimarron has been revived to give a promotional presence at other designated events.”
A separate statement released by a bitter rival said the following:
“He’s an imposter! I’d ride him like Zorro!”
