Fans encouraged to say farewell to "Mr. Two-Bits"



He retired once before, but was lured back into his familiar role.

Now it appears Florida's "Mr. Two-Bits'' is ready to hang it up for good this time.

Tampa resident George Edmondson, who has led the cheer at Gator games for 60 years, will retire at the end of the season.

Edmondson, 86, will be honored prior to kickoff of this weekend's Homecoming game against Kentucky. Fans are encouraged to arrive early for the ceremony, and to wear orange.
