As you may have noticed, a new poll has been posted at the top of this page. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the situation, I will fill you in on the details.
Prior to the season, Coach Dixon asked us that we find a more creative cheer to replace yelling sucks after each of the opposing players is introduced. Because our duty is to serve Coach Dixon and the team, this was not a request that could be ignored. Rather than try to come up with something on our own and implement it earlier in the season, we decided to take our time and try to involve as many people as possible in the decision-making process. Thus, we used e-mail, flyers, and Facebook to inform students of the upcoming change and to search for the best ideas. After a couple weeks of discussion, a poll was created on this site including the best suggestions.
The poll will be available from now until December 30. The choice that receives the most votes will become the Oakland Zoo’s new pregame intro cheer. The new cheer will be implemented for the first time at the Lafayette game on January 2 and will be used in all future games. Feel free to use the comments section of this post and/or the Facebook group to discuss the options and campaign for your favorite cheer. Let your friends know about this poll and encourage them to vote as well so that as many voices as possible can be heard.
This is your opportunity to impact the future of the Oakland Zoo, so take it seriously. And finally, may the best cheer win!
