I agree with the recent letter "Change the Jazz mascot" (March 24). The Jazz should have a "Select a Mascot" contest to select a new mascot that is more representative of Utah. A new mascot such as a profession, an animal, a bird, etc. would be great. The contestants would list the mascot with a short essay on why the name would best represent Utah.
