Oklahoma State mascot “Pistol Pete” is based on one of the Old West’s most renowned quick-draw practitioners. Cute, right? (Sue Ogrocki/Associated Press)

Oklahoma State has a pretty cool mascot, Pistol Pete. But he’s cool in a more or less adult, or at least post-childhood, way, from the bloody, revenge-fueled back story of the real guy to the mascot’s grim countenance.

Little wonder this young Cowboys fan appears upset when confronted with ol’ Pistol Pete.
