Navy Men’s Lacrosse ran with these custom HeadWrapz this past weekend in their victory over Johns Hopkins, 8-2. The big decal displayed on the helmet is a large goat. Bill the Goat is the mascot of the United States Naval Academy. Some people believe it may have played a superstitious role in Navy upsetting Hopkins Saturday.

There is a legend that a Navy ship sailed with a pet goat. The goat died during the cruise. The officers preserved the skin to have it mounted when they returned to port. Two young ensigns were entrusted with the skin. On the way to the taxidermist, they stopped by the United States Naval Academy to watch a football game. At half time, one ensign decided to dress up in the goat skin. The crowd appreciated the effort. Navy won the game.
