Big Parking Lot Rooster

A large rooster stands all by itself in a downtown parking lot. Nobody seemed to know why it was there or how long ago it appeared. It is brightly colored and may have something to do with the USC Gamecocks football team, but that is just speculation.

Cockle-doodle-don't park there if you're not a Gamecocks fan.
