I really enjoyed this column sent to me out of the Birmingham News over the weekend:
"The fascination with college football is unhealthy in this state. It has left the realm of good-natured fun and evolved into hatred. If you don't believe that, tune to a call-in sports radio show or log onto one of the al.com sports sites one day. Forget about Alabamians hating someone because of the color of their skin. Many Alabamians hate someone because of the color of their jerseys."
