Homegrown banners on PDD

I’m a little late this year, but here is the annual call. We’re looking for your Homegrown photos! The guidelines are the same as always. We’ll rotate Homegrown images in that extremely horizontal and hard-to-fit-a-photo-into space at the top of the page during next week’s festivities.

Does anybody know the history behind the Homegrown Chicken as a mascot?

Don’t get me wrong, the Chicken is cool, but I still don’t understand how it became the mascot. If anybody has any insight into this historical mystery, let me know.

Memories, like the kickballs of my mind

Just a heads up: Friday night’s Homegrown Winter Fiasco has moved Murder of Crows (featuring Gaelynn Lea & Alan Sparhawk) to Carmody Irish Pub @ 11:30PM, and the Acceleratii to the Rex Bar @ 12:30AM. That’s why it’s called a fiasco, folks.
