Got an email yesterday from a PR firm asking us to promote a little trip Colts defensive end Robert Mathis took to the Georgia Aquarium. From the PR folks:

NFL Colts starter, Robert Mathis, comes face-to-fin with football-loving Beethoven, a male beluga whale at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, GA. Mathis, a two-time Pro Bowler and Super Bowl champion, checked his stats against the 13-feet long, two-ton animal. Atlanta-native Mathis visited the world’s largest aquarium, home to two beluga whales, whales sharks, manta rays and more, with his family on Wednesday, March 24, 2010.

Mathis is a native of Atlanta, and seems to be doing some local work to bring some pub to the aquarium. I have no idea what stats he checked against Beethoven, but I assume Mathis can fly through the air better than a beluga whale can.

Really, this post is nothing more than an excuse to post a picture of Mathis with a whale. Enjoy.
