Huckleberries Past: It’s Not ‘T-Wolve’

From Huckleberries print column of May 18, 1994): “No. No. No. No. For years, we've lived with a high school mascot nicknamed after a chest rub: Viks. Now, Lake City High basketball coach Jim Winger is trying to saddle us with a literarily incorrect pet name for the new mascot in town: “T-Wolve” or “Timberwolve.” He used those adjectives five times in a girls' basketball camp announcement. There's no such animal in Webster's. It's “wolf” dagnabit. No wonder the SAT scores are falling.”

Question: Which Coeur d'Alene high school mascot do you like best — Viks or T-Wolves?
