I finally loaded a few pics from our trip down to Bear's home last weekend. The videos from the stadium weren't anything you couldn't get a sense of from TV, and the flipcup and bag skull vids may be too incriminating for unapproved posting, but here's what I got.
You may get a kick out of this correction that ran in the Tuscaloosa paper Saturday morning. Thanks to the Microtel for sliding it under my door!
More thanks to Microtel, for their lovely elephant towel:
Despite the brutality on the field, the sky looked very pretty:
And while it's been mentioned here by several other travelers, it bears (get it?) repeating: we owe the Alabama fans some serious hospitality when they come up next fall. Their friendliness and courtesy is of the highest value, even when gently rebuking. Some PSU douchea was makin a stink in the pizza shop friday night about the lack of cabs and a friendly Alabamian was conversant with him. PSU guy kept querying and querying, 'but why aren't they just lined up out here on the strip.' I was just about to shout him down myself, when Bama dude quipped: 'hey, we're cosmopolitan here, but we're not metro.'
And a special thanks to BSD's Paige and RBR's Nico for showing us a great time in Birmingham. I hope you make it up next year; I'd be psyched to return the favor. Off the field and on!
