Been a pretty good week in crimson. It started Saturday at halftime ...
(Note: Two funny things about this: the first, of course, is the ridiculous "controversy" caused by Nick Saban's "University of Auburn" slip; funnier to me is Greg McElroy, who you can clearly see in the background saying, "Boring.")
That's awesome, because it gives me an excuse to do this.
(One other note: my apologies to the president's press secretary, who today lamented the fact that football is actually a timed game, and the winner is declared after a full 60 minutes. Too bad, those damned rules.)
And the postgame Saturday was a lot of fun, also.
The best part came today: the Heisman winner, the SEC champs, the state champs and the national champs all showed up in D.C. for a little federal love.
Fun fact: of Alabama's last four national championships have coincided with the terms of the last three Democratic presidents (Carter, Clinton and Obama). Does that mean Alabama will go blue in 2012? Um, somehow I doubt it.
See you later today. Roll Tide.
