So I did a double-take today, in Bradley International Airport on my way to Brussels again, when I saw these fiberglass Huskies--an obvious take-off on the CowParade. Apparently there are Huskies all over the greater Hartford area.
The Husky is, of course, the symbol and mascot of the University of Connecticut at Storrs. UConn's sports teams are nicknamed the Huskies. It's appropriate--although apparently a coincidence--that "UConn" is a homonym for "Yukon." However you spell it, it's the home of the Huskies.
The actual live husky mascot is always named Jonathan, in honor of Connecticut's first governor, Johnathan Trumbull, Sr. I think they're up to Jonathan XII now. I didn't have time to figure out whether these puppies were named Jonathan or not. I had a plane to catch.
