Show your team spirit!

Last Friday, we joined a happy flock of football fans in downtown Florence that were gathered for a festive pep rally to cheer on our local Lions! I graduated from The University of North Alabama in 2004, and although our Saturdays are usually devoted to the Alabama Crimson Tide, I'm always interested in cheering for the UNA lions. The three of us showed our lion pride that warm Friday, decked out in purple and gold. We enjoyed mingling through the crowd and listening to the marching band. Our two live African Lion mascots, Leo III and Una, were even on site for the pep rally, watching the fans from the comfort of their travelling trailer. Hudson didn't seem too interested in watching the two beautiful beasts as they lazed in their temporaray holding cages, but as always, he enjoyed the hustle and bustle of the crowd. He did seem to enjoy visiting with the furry Leo mascot, and as a special treat, he got his first photograph with Lions Head Coach, Terry Bowden, a legendary member of college football’s most famous coaching family. We loved teaching Hudson about showing his team spirit....now he just needs to attend a UNA game! Roar Lions!

Hudson was really checking Terry Bowden out!! I can't believe he wasn't afraid of the mascot. Cute shirts!
