Who's got the "Bulldog Spirit"? Fresno State athletes, sure. But how about firefighters, a mailman and a girl playing hopscotch?
These folks and more sing the tune in a promotional video released Wednesday by Fresno State. The release was linked to Traditions Day, part of the Weeks of Welcome program on campus.
"Bulldog Spirit" is most closely linked to the late Jim Sweeney, who coached the Bulldogs' football team for 19 seasons. After Sweeney died in February 2013, former players sang the song at a memorial service held at Bulldog Stadium.
The video intercuts clips of Bulldog sports with moments of everyday people, young and old, declaring "I've got that Bulldog spirit, down in my toes."
During Traditions Day, Fresno State students learned how to get involved in life outside the classroom with activities such as Vintage Days, student government and Greek life.
