(Orlando Sentinel) – Red-hot slugger J.J. Schwarz and the Florida Gators baseball team are a pretty big deal these days and enter the College World Series favorites to win it all.
Even so, rock star status seemed to quite a ways off – until Thursday.
The Gators’ arrived to Gainesville Regional Airport for their flight to Omaha and soon were greeted by famous tongue and lip logo of the Rolling Stones.
The iconic image first appeared on the cover of the 1971 album “Sticky Fingers” and has been identified with the band ever since. These days, it appears on the side of the plane the band uses when touring.
Since the band was not using the plane Thursday during its current tour, the Gators ended up on the Stones’ Boeing 737-400 for the team’s trip to Nebraska.
I mean the gators were already heavy favorites to win it, but they might as well go ahead and hand them the trophy now right?
Such a baller way to come into town.
– Oh hey, how did you guys get here?
– Just took the Rolling Stones private plane, No Big Deal
Good luck topping that.
