Aubie and Big Al Unite for Literacy
Apparently, the best motivation to spark the reading interest of youngsters in the state of Alabama is to unite the two rivalry schools' mascots in a statewide literacy campaign. On the site, teachers may also download coloring book pages featuring Aubie and Big Al wearing the famous hat worn by none other than dr. Seuss' Cat in the Hat. No, the two mascots aren't going to a rave circa 1991, but hopefully, this campaign will engender a more-literate Iron Bowl in future years. However, someone should probably inform the AEA that being literate is usually not synonymously viewed by Alabamans with winning the Iron Bowl.
