Unlike the Auburn Tigers, Spirit – the AU eagle – was not on his game as he led the team into the stadium. Auburn, who has one of the most celebrated pregame traditions led by their brave bird, didn’t feel the effects after Spirit flew into the press box window.
He seemed fine, for those wondering, although next time he’ll have to avoid hard liquor until after the game. Either that, or he’ll have to continue to fly rambunctiously if it means Auburn wins, which they did today in thrilling fashion.
Of course there’s video. This courtesy of War Eagle Reader.
