Job opening: New Mexico State mascot

Remember the altercation at last year's WAC conference tournament between New Mexico State and Utah State mascots? Ever wonder, "How can I get involved in something like that?"

Well, New Mexico State is looking for a new student to be Pistol Pete. D.J. Downs, who didn't take kindly to having his fake moustache torn off by Big Blue, is graduating, according to the Las Cruces Sun-News:

Wanted: Gun-totin', Wrangler-wearin', moustached cowboy to be the face of the New Mexico State Aggies. Must be able to incite large crowds into screaming frenzies and spirited chants. Must devote many hundreds of hours throughout the school year to perfecting craft. Must be good with kids. Must play nice with other mascots (well, most of the time). Must know when to be the center of attention and when to stick to the sidelines. Must be able to bust a move. Must know every verse of the Aggie Fight Song. Must know all refs and officials are inherently blind. Must be principled, yet a prankster.
