I am going to take so many selfies

The new statue is glorious outside Bryant Denny Stadium:

I suspect you won’t be alone in taking selfies there. Don’t hurt yourself doing it.


That looks amazing. This is why I wish we’d drift away from the red tailed hawk thing and go towards a large animal like an elk or a moose.

They actually put it in a perfect spot to avoid people getting hurt. Also, I am lying. I don’t take photos of myself.

The cool part is the artist who did this is a guy from Africa with an eye patch which makes it more Heavy Metal :metal: than I suspected.

Do you have any info on the artist? This sounds like it could be an interesting story.
