I found out this morning that the BCS trophy is now on display at 2 local Wal-mart stores in Tuscaloosa. Read the story here. I think it's hilarious and shows off true Alabama "class."
I'm just glad it wasn't us for once. Thanks, Alabama!
Also found out that they are erecting a statue of Nick Saban now. As if his ego wasn't big enough already. Apparently the Alabama rule is that you get a statue if you win a national championship. I guess the 1/2 million dollars bonus wasn't enough.
Ok, one more Alabama headliner for you...probably the best yet.
The Texas Motor Speedway and the Talledega Superspeedway had a little bet going over the BCS game. The deal was that the loser would fly the other one's flag for a week. But the best line out of the whole story:
"Also, Talladega will receive a shipment of Sonny Bryan’s Smokehouse beef brisket."That was really sweet of Texas to throw in the brisket, too, don't you think??
Ok, one more...
There's an "underground" singer/songwriter out there, Carter Hamric. Maybe you've heard of him, but I haven't. He just recently recorded a song creatively titled, Roll Tide Roll. It became a big hit this December. His next song to-be-released?? It's called Facebook Her. This kid's a genius.
Alright, enough ragging on Alabama.
I need to go finish this weekend's project: Taking down and packing up the Christmas decorations. Ugh. I'm sure most of you did this weeks ago, but I am lazy. I actually keep mine up through January 7th, which is Christmas Day in Egypt. [If you're interested, that link has in-depth info on Christmas in Egypt based on the Coptic Church (a Christian church in a very predominately Muslim country)]. So I use it as an excuse to allow myself to keep everything out until then!
