For all those UAB alums out there....

A few weeks ago, I was walking from my office to my parking lot (approximately 0.7 miles for those keeping track) and noticed something that had seemed to have sprung up seemingly overnight in front of the basketball arena.



What the hell? So I got closer.



The next day was the big reveal. It truly is something for everyone in the local community to be proud of.



A completely awesome, not stupid looking or cartoonish, rubbery dragon! That apparently shoots smoke from its mouth! Yay!



Rarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!

This dragon made my day. Please take a picture of the smoke coming out of its mouth.
My favorite mascot experience has to be the robotic Vanderbilt Commodore that may or may not have a giant inside of it. Hilarious!
