Son usurps UNC mascot throne

The reign of Rameses XVII ended with the terrible flourish of Greek tragedy -- an "Oedipus Rex" set in the world of football and sheep. After five seasons as the UNC Chapel Hill mascot, the curly-horned monarch was knocked from the throne by a head-butt from his own son Pablo, who hit the elder ram so fiercely that his horn snapped off. His crown broken, Rameses will no more hear the roar of 60,000 fans, or see the Chapel Hill sky explode with fireworks. (Raleigh News & Observer)
