Neil Patrick Harris is loved by everyone, isn’t he? From being the lovable little Doogie Howser when he was a kid to making appearances has a weed-smoking, binge-drinking version of himself in the “Harold and Kumar” franchise to hosting one of the most captivating celebrity variety shows on television, he does just about everything.
Add being the Alabama Crimson Tide’s mascot to his list.
No one ever really sees who is inside those big furry costumes, but you have to imagine that they are pretty colorful characters. According to Fansided, Harris, who is a VERY colorful character, was dressed as Big Al at the Tide’s season opening game in Texas against Wisconsin.
During the season premiere of “Best Time Ever”, Harris made his way to Arlington for the big game with Alabama fans and newlyweds, Oronde and Teresha Hamilton. Only, they didn’t know he was there. Nobody did. He was hidden by going undercover as Big Al.
How cool is it that Harris was in the costume at the game? Can you imagine if you took a picture with Big Al and two weeks later found out that it was actually NEIL FREAKING PATRICK FREAKING HARRIS?
I really hope ESPN gets him for College Gameday this weekend. After all, it is in Tuscaloosa.
