S.I.’s “Shocker” Cover Really is Shocking
Before the Wichita State Shockers were knocked out by Kentucky we were joking about their mascot. The Shocker. That name probably had a veeeery different connotation back when they first chose it. Times have changed and so has the mental image of a “shocker”
We were even joking that the students should do the “shocker” hand gesture in support of their team.
Well, guess what one of our observant Neckline callers noticed! Check out this recent Sports Illustrated cover featuring a Wichita State player surrounded by students….
Look closer. Over the player’s right shoulder. Notice what the cute co-ed is doing with her fingers…
It’s the Shocker! In fact, MOST of the students are doing the international hand sign for “two in the pink, one in the stink”
Wow. It makes the Miner Pick Axe seem a little prudish. Your move, Susquehanna State “Strangers”.
