The New & Improved Snappy

Written by Sean Valant

Monday, July 1st, 2013

It has been historically noted that Snappy hasn’t always been in the best of shape.  To be fair, eating up the competition can create a caloric surplus, resulting in excessive weight gain.  Also, those long hours sitting in front of a computer can negatively impact one’s physique.  Snappy was once even compared to a blue salamander, which is clearly an insult to a proud gator.  At any rate, Snappy has been in the gym, working on his fitness.  It’s likely that you’ve gotten a glimpse of the new and improved Snappy in recent weeks on this very blog, but let’s revisit Snappy’s look over the years, and touch on some of the highlights.

It is a rarely-known fact that Snappy threw out the first pitch at a Houston Astros game a few years ago:

 

Every now and again, we’d see Snappy roaming around the HostGator offices and rubbing elbows with his colleagues:

 

Truth be told, Snappy has even been spotted on the roof of the Houston office:

 

As Snappy began to see more and more pictures of himself, he began to really consider getting into better shape. The HostGator Austin building has a pretty stellar gym, Snappy was seen hitting the treadmill in there more and more. It seems like all that hard work has finally paid off, because this is what Snappy looks like today!

Clearly this is a far more fit gator, ready to take on the world! Snappy has never felt better, and with summer now upon us, Snappy intends to take his fitness to the next level, perhaps even participating in an Ironman triathlon… assuming there’s no Irongator triathlons he can enter. Snappy would also like to get out and about. Maybe you know of some location or function at which Snappy could appear, if so be sure to let us know by emailing feedback@hostgator.com ATTN: Blog
