FRESNO, Calif. - The Fresno State women's basketball team has a new addition to its travel party for the 2011-12 season. Crazy Monkey will join the Bulldogs on the road this year and share his adventures.
Each time the `Dogs hit the road, Crazy Monkey and a student-athlete or coach will share what happens away from Fresno, Calif.
Crazy Monkey was a present from assistant coach Sadiaa Jones and former assistant Becky Gonzalez to associate head coach Brett Frank. Coach Frank thought that Crazy Monkey would be the perfect traveling companion for the team and now he travels wherever the `Dogs go.
The Bulldogs embarked on their first road trip of the season to Los Angeles to face USC. Crazy Monkey enjoyed his first bus ride with the team. On the way to Los Angeles Crazy Monkey and the team watched a movie, `Something borrowed' and somehow managed to avoid traffic on the way to the hotel.
After settling in at the hotel, Crazy Monkey experienced his first practice. He watched as the `Dogs prepared for their first game of the season. After practice, it was off to his first team meal of the season. The Bulldogs ate at ESPN Zone while watching the Thursday night NFL game.
On game-day, Crazy Monkey was first from Fresno State to sit on the bench. He looked on as the team warmed up for the game. During the game, he cheered the Bulldogs on with coach Frank's parents, who were in town to see the `Dogs too.
Crazy Monkey and the team loaded the bus and headed back home. He is excited to hit the road again next weekend as Fresno State heads to Pepperdine and Cal Poly.
"We Are Your Team" -- The Bulldogs hit the road again Nov. 18-20. The `Dogs take on Pepperdine and then travel to Cal Poly. For tickets log on to gobulldogs.com or call 278-DOGS.
