You know, I sometimes wonder if there are days when Nick Saban looks around and asks, “what have I gotten myself into?”.
Filed under Whoa, oh, Alabama
The state of Alabama need a professional sport team….oh wait.
That’s kind of pathetic. I’ve always wondered what spurs a fully grown adult to indulge in the same type of gooey hero worship with sports stars or celebrities that teenage girls do with boy bands
And I bet those people make fun of the DragonCon types. They’re the exact same creature.
Lucky for them that DragonCon 2014 and West Virginia are scheduled on the same weekend
I just wish the downtown ATL hotels would release the elevator surveillance videos from Fri and Sat nights of DragonCon/Chick Fil A college football kickoff. AL and WVU mixing with the DragonCon attendees – that is people watching GOLD.
Pridefest & the NASCAR Race are that weekend too… 🙂
That’s what makes it the Mother of All Events Weekend
Totally forgot about that … I guess Pridefest also will be centered in Downtown but do a lot of folks coming in for NASCAR stay in downtown hotels?
No doubt about it though – you could bring your whole family to Metro Atlanta for Labor Day weekend and they will all be able to find something to do.
I just wish that Stephen Garcia could be there to report on and take part in both glorious events
delete “take part in both glorious events”
replace with “take part in all four glorious events”
Agree. You can add adult men who wear jerseys of their favorite player to that. To live your life in worship of someone or some thing, neither of which has no direct, meaningful impact on your life whatsoever, is totally beyond me.
My favorites are the pics of of the fat slobs. If they cared as much about their personal health as they did Saban/Bama football, they would be a perfect model for the next P90X series.
+1, Irish. I’ve never understood it. But celebrity worship is rampant today.
The guy in the “Pro Camps” shirt must be his daily lunch delivery guy. Dude is quick and came out of nowhere to blow by that old lady.
She’s probably thinking exactly the same thing I think at the end of each 5K when the 8 month pregnant chick pushing a baby in a stroller blows right past me at the finish line
He created that monster.
No, HB, if I may beg to differ, that monster was already there, Nick just woke it up. Losing to Auburn last year, the way they lost…these people are just barely sane, in a general sense. Think the Pope visiting South America.
Nick is an outlier breaking the streak of head coaches named Mike. After he leaves, they’ll go back to hiring Mikes and normalcy will be resumed in the SEC West
I saw a video of this entitled the “Running of the Gumps”. Classic!
Cue “Chariots of Fire”.
Tasha’s got a little bit too much Alabama on her
Well, on the plus side, that’s obviously the first time many of them have run since the grand opening of the local Krispey Kreme. Exercise is good, regardless of the motivation.
Not if it gives you a heart attack. Some of these folks look like good candidates.
Yep. My brother is an ER doc in Colorado. After a good snowfall, they can pretty much set their clocks as to when they’ll get flooded with patients suffering heart attacks (usually within 12 hours). This is due to all those who venture out to shovel snow (which is a grueling workout) that are in no shape to due so.
They actually ramp up their staff due to this, and this is in the healthy state of Colorado, which couldn’t be any more different than Alabama.
Please tell your brother I wasn’t practicing medicine without a license.
Was it Bama Fat Ass day too?
That’s every day in the Heart of Dixie
…and pretty much anywhere in the deep south.
Experts have even spotted clusters of fatties in Florida, which runs against the notion that somehow Florida is not part of the deep fat fried South
As someone who used to live in Florida, I can attest that, the further south you go, the further north you go. I never saw a lot of fat people in WPB or Naples. Ocala, Live Oak, and the Panhandle? Everywhere.
“the further south you go, the further north you go.”
…the next thing you know, you’re in the middle of New Jersey
Meanwhile… Saturday on the Flats….;-)
Did Saban sign “first” on the first signature? Just like when he comments on ATL journal articles?
