Eternal Pelicus

ETERNAL PELICUS
A Centurion wanders the ages and the continents in his quest to find Pelicus. He tirelessly searches because since the Fall of Rome only Pelicus represents the ideals of Empire: striving for glory through achievement and honor, physical and mental perfection, dedication to one’s craft and celebration of the human spirit.

Appearing for the first time in the current era at the Chicago convention of referees in 1998, the Centurion demanded to know who, indeed, was Pelicus. From his military bearing and antiquated manner his intent was mistaken to be evil. Nonetheless, the Northern California Rugby Referees Society stood as one in a great chorus, proudly and defiantly calling “I am Pelicus!”

Bob Woerner of the Eastern Rockies joined the flock at that moment, an act of courage and camaraderie that earned him a mascot pelican.

The Centurion reported back to the Senate, who were pleased to adopt the NorCal Society as their representatives in this modern age.

Mr. Woerner then traveled to New Zealand and was photographed holding the Bledisloe Cup with the pelican peaking from his pocket. The Senate was pleased to award him the sobriquet Pelicus Ubiquitous.

Other pelici then clamored for nomenclature. As their merit is proven, names are bestowed. Members of the Society may petition the Senate on behalf of worthy candidates.

One note of caution: Matt Eason mocked the Senate by proposing a name in pig-Latin for himself. Thus he will be known unto the tenth generation as Pelicus Littlus Dickus. After performing some good works he then petitioned to have his name extended. Thus, he was granted the appendage Priapismus.

When awardees of Pelicus names greet each other they make the sign of the Pelican and hail each other by their macaronic names.

The Senate makes a weekly pronouncement regarding the events of the flock and issues periodic bulletins announcing new members and other worthy events.

HAIL PELICUS!
