LITTLE ROCK, AR - Can you guess Arkansas School for the Deaf's mascot?

How about the leopards? Get it, "The Deaf Leopards" . . .  like the band "Def Leppard"?

The Little Rock school is quite proud of their clever play on words. When a Little Rock resident found out the band was playing in their city, he created a petition to convince the band to meet the students.

The petition was a success; over 1400 people signed, and the Deaf Leopards got to meet Def Leppard!

On their unforgettable night, the students took backstage photos along with their school's sports scoreboard.

Although they may not get to enjoy music the same way most people do, these students look like they know how to rock and roll!
