Ralphie The Buffalo
RALPHIE THE BUFFALO is the name of the live mascot of the University of Colorado Buffaloes
Colorado Buffaloes
. Ralphie has been called one of the best live mascots in sports, and she is often erroneously labeled male. The team of "Ralphie Handlers," who are varsity student-athletes, run Ralphie around Folsom Field , the University of Colorado's football field, in a horse shoe pattern before each half of each home game. It takes five Ralphie Handlers to run her around the field: two up front on each side to steer her around the field, two in the back on each side to help guide her, and one in far back to control her speed, called the "loop" position. Ralphie can reach speeds of 25 miles per hour (40 km/h). Female bison are used because they are smaller and less aggressive, as well as for insurance reasons, although Ralphie has knocked over her handlers on more than one occasion

Pound (mass)
The POUND or POUND-MASS is a unit of mass used in the imperial , United States customary and other systems of measurement . A number of different definitions have been used; the most common today is the international avoirdupois pound, which is legally defined as exactly 6999453592370000000♠0.45359237 kilograms , and which is divided into 16 avoirdupois ounces . The international standard symbol for the avoirdupois pound is LB; an alternative symbol is LBM (for most pound definitions), # (chiefly in the U.S. ), and ℔ or ″̶ (specifically for the apothecaries\' pound ). The unit is descended from the Roman libra (hence the abbreviation "lb"). The English word pound is cognate with, among others, German Pfund, Dutch pond, and Swedish pund. All ultimately derive from a borrowing into Proto-Germanic of the Latin expression lībra pondō ("a pound by weight"), in which the word pondō is the ablative case of the Latin noun pondus ("weight")
