I know you shouldn’t tar an entire fan base because of the actions of a few crackpots, but between Harvey Updyke and this bitch, damn, Alabama, just damn.
Filed under Whoa, oh, Alabama
Living among these fan bases, I can believe almost anything. Best Auburn taunt I’ve heard: “Hey Saban, gotta second?”
“Hey Georgia, can you leave the tip?”
“Georgia, why don’t you catch the tip for me, too?”
“Georgia, I don’t need your stinkin’ tips!”
God Almighty, that’s messed up!
I blame Todd Grantham.
This reply can’t be topped. Move along.
How can you say that when you know it’s Bobo’s fault!
For the win! Grab the crayons!!
“The victim’s sister, Nekesa Shepherd, said she witnessed the killing and had no doubt it was about football…”
You people laugh and joke but I do blame Todd Grantham.
Alcohol “might” have been involved.
Don’t forget the fatal shooting involving the LSU v. Alabama games a few years ago.
To your larger point, there is a fundamental difference in the culture of Alabama and that of Georgia. The players that grow up in that environment imbibe the myopic obsession with winning football games at a level that exceeds all other states. Nick Saban is the perfect obsessive compulsive perfectionist to exaggerate these characteristics.
Besides this shooting and the social media nuts that got after Foster, I actually thought Alabama folks were taking this fairly well. On the other hand, I haven’t left my basement since Saturday night, so my perspective might be a little skewed.
There are basements in Alabama? You must be from the northern part of the State.
The fact that BD hasn’t left his basement since the Bama loss in the Iron Bowl says something, too.
Sometimes Alabama fans have difficulty accepting the fact that tomorrow is another day and we have to depend on the kindness of strangers like a Harry Potter.
If you see a person wearing an Auburn sweatshirt, he probably went to Auburn….if they’re wearing a Bama sweatshirt, they probably went to Walmart!!!
Giggled at that one.
I tell you what, BD – if I were Foster, I’d be a little nervous right now.
He’s probably reading the insert directions to a new Zimmer he just purchased.
Hint. They make medical devices that remove skin.
That’s not all they make…Richt has a Zimmer.
“Basement” 4 x 8 cement and iron-lined box stuffed with Spam, MRE’s, ham radio, and enough guns & ammo to hold-off UScar’s zombie nation when the time comes. “Basement” indeed.
Dude, everybody’s got their nutjobs, everybody. We all live in glass houses when it comes to trying to generalize about an entire group of people based on one kook, two, or even three. Nuts are nuts, we just don’t lock them up like we used to.
Yep. Sad but true. Nutjobs everywhere.
Actually, maybe Paul Finebaum was right after all. He said that Georgia fans don’t care enough. He pontificated that Alabama fans would never tolerate Mark Richt because they cared a lot more than their Dawg counterparts.
I saw Paul on ESPN and was amazed at the miniature elephant size of his ears, the proportions of which would make a Tuberville jealous
You’re too kind, DIF. Paul Finebaum looks like a walking penis wearing glasses and a necktie. His nose and ears are just surplus tissue that was not scraped away during circumcision.
Good point. I think maybe his handlers will have to get him an inpatient ear reduction procedure, have him fitted for a toupe or enlarge his skull to distract the attention of viewers from a head made for a radio network .
LOL, y’all funny.
How do they compare to the Neil Diamond/Mitch Albom scale? I’d always thought those two had the biggest ears on the planet.
My 12 year old told me he looks like Mr Burns from the Simpsons.
I think that’s a fair statement.
There are significantly more people in Alabama than Georgia that tie their existence/worth to college football and more importantly, the Iron Bowl.
They really do say “Who you fer?” when they meet you.
A friend of mine used to install and service network systems in small banks throughout the South. In Alabama banks, the lobby would frequently…not once, frequently include a bust of Bear Bryant AND Shug Jordan. Or perhaps a framed panorama of Bryan-Denny Stadium AND Jordan-Hare stadium. I’ve never seen anything like this in any bank I’ve set foot in here.
FWIW, I once attended summer classes at Bama so I’ve kicked about over there too.
“so I’ve kicked about over there too”
Bama football, it is serious business. Hell, they will even poison trees. Shoot people. Why not. At least they do not shoot their coaches. They are smart enough not to do that, after all their coaches win a damn bunch of games and titles.
“after all their coaches win a damn bunch of games and titles” so why not shoot a Heat fan
Would the Athletic Board and AD be willing to go after Ed Oregeron now that he resinged from USC. He is suppose to be a solid DC.
On second thought those Alabama fans might shoot their coaches after those calls late in the Auburn game. It is one thing to have a pass deflected and to let a W/O get behind you in the open.
Coach O is a recruiter and a DL coach. I don’t think he is known as a good defensive coordinator.
Ed is presently staked out in the back yard of a safe house in Compton to keep him from gnawing off the head of Pat Haden. Until that bad mojo is gone Ed’s agent will not make him available for interviews.
That little issue will never keep him from his next job, wherein he hires Lane Kiffin as his chief recruiter, and Monte as the DC
When Haden hired another coach, Ed sarcastically told him to kiss off. Then when he found out who, he realized he had inadvertently recommended the new coach. Then he recommended sometrhing else to Haden but unfortunately Haden’s dick was too short.
With all due respect to the deceased, this doesn’t seem like the typical Alabama football related violence which usually involves a few more rednecks.
I thought I was doing well by not screaming obscenities off the back deck. Little did I know my that my cool, self-controlled manner could be endangering myself.
Let it out BD! You have got to go ahead and scream. Or better yet hit something, ..like take out a revolver and shoot a big pillow on the sofa. That always makes me feel better. Just a little personal property damage. No harm done.
Why would the “bitch” carry a gun into a football party.? Only in Alabama…Hoover Alabama. …
They don’t shoot their coaches, but Bill Curry got a brick thrown through his office window. This makes the tea bagger seem mild.
This makes occupy wallstreet seem mild…wait at least no one was raped.
Brandon…this is Alabama…football is serious there…makes the whole Occupy movement like a kindergarten field trip.
Yep. Lucky no one blew up a church.
BD, I sypmathize. I did leave my basement after the way we lost to Auburn, but a few things down there were reduced to splinters.
Finebaum has now replaced Colin Cowherd as the sports guy I most want to physically assault (well, he’s number 2 now that Olbermann is back at ESPN). He is such an insufferable little twerp
For comparison sake, I cannot envision a group of Gwinnett County rednecks getting to the point of shooting someone over a Georgia game, or poisoning trees. I keep harping that the whole state of Alabama is rigged for Tide football. In a similar vein, the whole state lives for the Tide. It must be nice that they have something that successful to hang on to, but only in Alabama is this not a surprise.
Not the whole state HB….there are lots of Awbun fans, too…and they live for the brief moments like the Miracle of the Dead Trees. You really do have to live there a while to get this.
I have to say: our whole street is full of Bama people and several houses had crowds over on Saturday. We left the house after the game and all of our neighbors were out playing with their kids in the yard. Chatter seemed upbeat, no one sounded angry. I have to give them some credit for that. After the SECCG last year we could barely crawl out our door to get some food for our kids.
Correct. Today’s Gwinnett County rednecks are more likely to shoot someone over the outcome of a soccer game or a bullfight.
Yea. I can’t imagine UGA fans ever behaving this badly.
I am definitely not condoning the egging of Murray’s house but can’t believe you are comparing that to murder.
No, but it is a good analogy for nut-cases being associated with all fans.
Or how about this one Patin…not murder, or even tree-murder, still pretty nutty though:
Now Scorp…there’s a place you might need your gun. Ya know traveling to and from in the ghetto.
“It was over a football game,” said Shepherd. “I’m never going to forget it because she died in my arms.”
Now I know why I never took my gun to Grant Field.
Just too much Bama in that one…
