If you’re so emotionally invested in a team, that you’re willing to commit a crime to show your allegiance....You’ve got some serious problems.

Remember, it’s just entertainment.

Check out the movie Big Fan about an obsessed NY Giants fan. Lead character regularly calls sports radio and eventually commits a crime.

The lead character was also a loser in his mid-30s who still lived with his mom. Unlike this tree-killer, who is apparently a 62 year old loser living in Dadeville.

The jail is full of them here in Columbus on fall weekends. And I'm not talking about drunk kids puking on the sidewalk, I'm talking about "adults" who commit arson, assault and vandalism in their belief that it makes them Buckeye fans.

Not to an average University of Alabama fan who never attended the University of Alabama.

I've lived all over the country. I've seen all kinds of fans of different universities with outstanding football traditions. As I sit here, a few hundred miles away, the University of Alabama is the only situation I've seen where fans honestly believe they are better in the eyes of God because they support a particular college football team. And the fans I speak about generally never attended a class in Tuscaloosa.

I believe if you could take an anonymous poll, the majority of Alabama fans who didn't attend the University of Alabama (and quite possibly a majority of those who did) are cheering Mr. Updyke.
