Random story from a Buckeye alumnus.

Florida beat us soundly in a bowl game at one point (2006?) and someone put up a 6’ tall Florida gator statue on the corner of 14th and High St (the center of the campus bar area and across the street from the student union) and then filmed people’s reactions from a distance. One dude punched it in the face and then it quickly devolved into a small mob stomping it into oblivion. As I recall, it only lasted a couple hours.

This brings back the memories.

But why?
Also, Go Dawgs!
(Actually, it’s a pretty cool piece of work – lot of detail for only 5” tall!)

I forgot to mention…it’s actually a bottle stopper, with a recessed cork, so it can be on a bottle, or sit on a shelf.
