Video: Mississippi State players and lion share ‘Maroon & White’ chant

It’s not exactly Simba peering over Pride Rock before letting out an epic, pulse-pumping roar in the way that only Disney can do best, but this is really cool in its own right.

The Mississippi State baseball team is in Omaha as one of two SEC representatives at the 2013 College World Series (along with LSU). During some off time, the Bulldogs headed over to the zoo, but they could not have known they’d have a fan in one of the lions on the grounds.

That is a very distinct, very epic “Maroon & White” chant between the team and its new lion mascot.
