A photo of a Libyan rebel sporting an AU T-shirt has the Internet buzzing.

Washington Post sportswriter Dan Steinberg blogged about the photo, August 25, after readers submitted a picture of the armed man, clad in camouflage pants, and an AU Blue Crew T-shirt. The rebel can also be seen praying in a video.

The Blue Crew, AU’s student spirit squad, fills the bleachers at Bender Arena during basketball games and other sporting events. Their bright, blue shirts feature a fierce Clawed the Eagle in a hard hat.
