Beginning late last night, the social media and website marketing teams began rolling out the Chihuahua’s media platforms. The Facebook page alone already had over 8,900 “likes” by Wednesday morning, compared with the nearly 6,400 who signed a petition on the popular petition website change.org to appeal to MountainStar Sports to change the name of the mascot. There were no specific suggestions on mascot alternatives from the change.org petition.
