Watch: Elephant in Bear Bryant hat kicks football
The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is in Birmingham this week, so it makes sense the elephants would play a little football.
One elephant dressed up like legendary Crimson Tide coach Bear Bryant and showed off its kicking skills. It isn't exactly clear if the animal has been trained to do this or is simply reacting to have a projectile thrown at it.
The good news for Bama fans is it doesn't look like the elephant could even kick the ball far enough to let an Auburn player return it for a touchdown. Give the beast a scholarship.
