Yes, I voted for Zippy!

What's left? Where's the next mountain for Zippy?

Somewhere, Rolf Harris is celebrating like a madman. Hope he tied his kangaroo down first!

I wanted to vote for Zippy, but Capital One wanted so much personal information to log in that I decided not to give it to them. I'm glad to see that Zippy won, but not at the expense of my getting even more telemarketing calls and junk mail.

More popular than The Don. Unlike Honest Joe, Zippy obviously knew how to get out the vote (Yes, yes, I know it was national. Lighten up!).

The Roo probably posesses more brains than the local govt GoodFellas & skirts combined.

Congrats, Zippy. BTW, XYZ!

How funny to see a can't stater calling out Akron. Look in the webster dictionary under loser and you'll see can't state. Btw, all the bb's at kent telling their students to vote against zippy failed. Zippy's second to no one including the nut.

As a Univ of Akron alumni, I always got tired of people asking "why is the mascot a kangaroo?" I am so thrilled to see Zippy be named #1!!!!

Zippy Rocks!
