I guess the SEC really does take its football seriously.

“These kind of idiots have the right to VOTE. ugh”

I’d like to say 2 of them won’t vote any longer... but they are likely Dems, and we all know Dems vote long after they’re dead.

I moved to Alabama from Ohio; the difference between the way they look at football is like comparing shooting a bullet and throwing it.

In Alabama football is life and death... literally

You betcha. The 15 years I spent living in SEC country (Georgia and Tennessee) taught me there is no other sport than SEC football. Well, maybe you could mention that a particular NASCAR driver was a fan of one of those teams...

Whoa...SEC football and redneck trailer park televised games. Bad mixture! Some things just don’t go together: Tunafish and jelly sandwich, Pamela Anderson and chastity, neck and tattoo, ... it’s like ike trying to blend an Obama voter with a ‘Bama fan.

I believe this is one of the few Bama counties that isn’t dry. So if they had just allowed the Baptists to fix things...alcohol would never have touched their lips and created this situation (so my minister would say).

I Hope messiah 0bama doesn’t get wind of this. He might move to ban shotguns in the hands of sports fans that have been known to indulge in adult libations...

For a couple of these people, that can be said in the past tense.

There were shots at the Boston College-Notre Dame game as well. J&B, Dewers, Hennessy, “THE” Glen Livet.

Smith retrieved a pistol from his vehicle, and threatened Williams, who armed himself with a shotgun and fired two blasts, striking and killing Dennis Smith, officers said.

Donna Smith then threatened Williams, who shot and killed the woman, they said.

That definitely wasn't the best of ideas, Donna.
