That’s Using Your Noggin

Albert Gator, the mascot of the University of Florida, saved a fan from a foul ball during the teams game against North Carolina. Albert did so by sacrificing his cranium.

A video tweeted by the team shows Albert Gator sitting next to a young fan in the stands during the team’s Tuesday game against the University of North Florida when a foul ball comes in their direction.

The mascot uses his arms and body to protect the boy and the foul ball ends up bouncing off Albert Gator’s foam-filled head.

The mascot feigned injury for the amused crowd while the young boy pretended to give him CPR.

Nice heads up by the mascot. I’ve attempted to catch a foul ball with my bare hand, and I can tell you it hurts like hell. It certainly would have injured the child.
