ESPN Uses Golden Girls Theme Song to Salute the SEC's Animal Mascots Let's thank each one for being a friend

Do you enjoy looking at adorable animals and singing along to "Thank You for Being a Friend," the Andrew Gold song whose cover by Cynthia Fee rightfully belongs to Blanche, Rose, Sophia and Dorothy from The Golden Girls?

Then ESPN's new spot by McKinney is for you.

Well, you and the mascots for Mississippi State ("Bully"), Arkansas ("Tusk"), Texas A&M ("Reveille"), Auburn ("War Eagle"), Louisiana State ("Mike"), Georgia ("Uga"), South Carolina ("Sir Big Spur") and Tennessee ("Smokey").

The ad, "Animals," features the mascots for the Southeastern Conference schools to help launch the SEC Network, a new national sports network from ESPN that debuts Aug. 14.
