University of Colorado's Chip named mascot of the year

Yes, it's true. Chip, the University of Colorado at Boulder mascot, has earned top honors in the 2010 Universal Cheerleading Association's mascot competition -- making him a back-to-back national champ. Dan Hawkins sure as hell can't say the same.

The clip above served as Chip's award-winning entry to the UCA contest, showing the anthropomorphic bovine to be far more energetic and interactive than some mascots we could name (like Dinger, for instance). But he should think twice about going pro. To us, the Nuggets' Rocky still rules the roost.
