I return, admittedly with some fear and trepidation over offending the Tahd Nation, to a subject that continues to puzzle me – Nick Saban’s need to explain his appearance in the film version of Michael Lewis’ The Blind Side.
In response to a few questions at SEC Media Days, Saban again spoke of his personal hope that the ‘Bama fan base would be able to grasp the concept of history.
“I’m hopeful that all of our fans will understand that the movie was a historical event,” Saban said. “And when it happened and occurred, that was a time in history when it occurred.”
I still can’t figure out why that’s a worry, but what the heck.
Here’s the really strange quote from the man:
“Our team has already voted not to go see the movie. They don’t want to endorse something like that I was involved with.”
A vote. The team had a vote. The team had a vote not to endorse what exactly, the movie or LSU?
I’m curious to see what happens when the film gets released in Alabama. Protests? Riots in the streets? Book burnings? Mass hysteria?
