Despite being a member for quite a while now, I just recently browsed this forum topic for the first time. It seems to be the perfect place for these pics.
These are displays created by me and some of the staff here at the Carnegie Museum, to celebrate the three recent visits to the Super Bowl by our hometown Steelers. They went on public display in the front of the museum for about two weeks prior to each of the three games. The visitors really loved them, and it was fun to put them together.
All of the specimens were carefully handled by us and all were returned unharmed to the collection. In other words - "no specimens were injured during this project"
Note the stuffed cardinal specimens in honor of the Arizona Cardinals, and the green and yellow "Packers" cetoniines trapped in the corner by the Black'n'Gold (that didn't go so well in real life, as any of you Green Bay fans will happily remember...)

Looks great! I hope this results in sports fans taking a look at entomology.
