Goldfinger...the man with the Midas touch...

Shit, now that song will be stuck in my head all day thanks to Marquette's silly new mascot name-change. The Marquette Gold is our new team name. Now, personally, I don't give a moldy dried fig about sports. I have never attended a Marquette basketball game in my life (and ssshh, it's a secret, there are people here who would consider that a heresy and tie me up to a stake, burning me with old issues of the Tribune, set alight with my own lighter!). I was, personally, proud that Shorewood Highschool's football team set multiple records for losses. We are the home of the noble Greyhounds!

But yeah, so now that Marquette's new mascot is gold, I can't stop thinking of all the silly stuff that can be applied to its new nickname in merchandizing...let's see what comes up on google if you search for gold...hmm...

A Drawstring Bag with Gold Nuggets . Classy! And makes a handy souvenir or weapon to toss at the opposing team if Marquette ever makes it to the Final Four championship...

If you're going to a Marquette event, don't forget to deck yourself out in SParkly Prism Tape! the must-have adhesive accessory for every Marquette Fan ... because we are fabulous.

For $2.50, you can get a lovely Gold Tiara.

For the classier fan, there's Tarte's Social Climber glimmering golden skin moisturizer, only $28 a bottle from

Want to look like an extra from the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie "Arabian Nights"? Then check out these gold slippers

And finally, for the gold sweet-tooth in all of us...there is Godiva and their Gold Ballotin gift box at 1/2 pound. Mmmmmm.....
