You can't script endings like this. You just cant.
After Alabama was given one final play, Nick Saban elected to send in freshman kicker Adam Griffith to replace Cade Foster, who had missed three field goals, to kick a 56-yard game-winning field goal.
What happened next is indescribable, and unexplainable.

Chris Davis returned the missed kick 109-yards for the most incredible finish in Iron Bowl history. Alabama's undefeated season comes to an end in the most stunning and remarkable fashion.

Looks like the work of Satan to me.

You have no idea, Evolve. Birmingham shut down over this. There was weeping or there was laughing at people weeping. To say this level of fandom is religious isn't stressing the dedication and fanaticism enough. If these people were Catholic the Pope would tell them to tone it down a bit. And not the new anti-NoB pope, but someone like Ratzinger who was all up in that pomp and circumstance. On the off-chance that I watch TV with commercials, I hear "Roll Tide" more often right now than "Merry Christmas."

On the plus side, the theater was very slow for a Saturday, and I got to lose an awesome boardgame before work since everyone gathered to watch football.

I think I've watched maybe twenty minutes of football in my entire life.

Seems a little goofy honestly.

I'd rather be playing it.

I honestly don't think it has anything to do with football at all. My brother is a die-hard Alabama fan, but if you invited him to play football he would look at you like you suggested flaying his leg and setting it on fire would be a fun time. He didn't even go to school around here. It's a faith. Auburn could win 50 times in a row - he would still insist Alabama is the better team, and that there's something wrong with reality at the moment.

WE MUST HAVE THIS PREVENTED FROM BEING TAUGHT IN SCHOOLS IMMEDIATELY IF NOT SOONER.
GET THE ACLU ON THE LINE.

I do kinda have a problem with the focus on inter-mural sports in schools. It was mandatory attendance at the pep rallies in my high school. The amount of money sports gets compared to other programs is insane, and I would say near half of the events and songs offered in the musical arts are solely to support the sports teams. It only gets worse when you reach college - especially once you consider how none of the athletes are paid. To alter Mitch Hedberg's comments (https://twitter.com/WeMissMitch/status/20263112229789696), University of Alabama is a football team that occasionally educates people.

And not the new anti-NoB pope

How is the new pope anti-me?

For Auburn fans, the Menorah just lasted 15 days, gave birth to Jesus, killed and raped Satan, enlightened everyone and brought them to Nirvana, then flew up to Heaven on a donkey.

For Alabama fans, their team let Auburn win a small skirmish match as a holiday gift; that or this month simply didn't happen.

Alabama Ackbar!! (http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaf/2013/12/02/deadly-shooting-over-alabama-loss-to-auburn/3819905/)



Nekesa Shepherd said Briskey flew into a rage when she saw the sisters and others joking that the Crimson Tide's loss wasn't as bad as if the NBA's Miami Heat had lost a game.
"She said we weren't real Alabama fans because it didn't bother us that they lost. And then she started shooting," Shepherd told The Associated Press.

Shepherd, the mother of three, was shot to death in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the Birmingham suburb of Hoover and the women did not know each other before the party, Coker said.

Seriously, what the hell?

Seriously, what the hell?

Team / local sports fans. Crazy people.

Root for corporate sponsored / less-geographically tied teams and individuals (F1, tennis, MMA)

Avoid the mania.
