I like how Tommy looks like he's getting ready to go after that seagull with his sword! Linking with Skywatch Friday. Click on the link to check out great skies from around the world!!

This life-sized bronze statue is Tommy Trojan, the University of Southern California's collegiate symbol and a favorite meeting spot on campus since 1930. I took this last weekend just before the dreadful USC vs. Washington State game. As a USC graduate, I feel like I paid for part of this statue (even back then it was an expensive university). More accurately, it was my wife who paid for part of this statue, as I was in school full-time working on my doctorate of pharmacy degree and she was paying most of the bills. When I graduated, she was given an honorary "Ph.T." degree (putting hubby through). I think she still has that diploma somewhere!
