Crashing a wedding is for the birds, as University of Miami's mascot Sebastian the Ibis proved over the weekend when he made a surprise appearance at a Hurricane mega fan's wedding reception. Apparently, the bride paid to have him appear for a few hours—the bird's current rate is $250 to $300—as a gift to her husband. As a bonus, UM threw in Johnson. Social media shows the appearance was a hit with party guests, proving it's great to be a Miami Hurricane during wedding season, unless, of course, you're a Seminole.
