Roll Tide! (please indulge me).


 I’ve taken a much needed break from politics and political blogging.  I haven’t been on Orange for of months, ever since it totally sold out with that PBS “skin” and then its founder went on a couple of tirades against the very people who built-up his little bloggy empire (and who’ve made him his pile over the past 5 years).  At this point, I’ve no intention of going back.

 Docudharma is the quieter, saner, version of Orange:  all the politics, half the freakyness (well, 1/10th of the freakyness).  So this is where I now come to lurk or very occasionally comment or diary.  But I haven’t come here very much lately.

 But today, this Sunday morning, in the full flush of last night’s walloping of Florida by Alabama (and humiliation of that sanctimonious twit, Tebow), I simply feel compelled to visit this Best Political Blog and (virtually) shout:  Roll Tide!

 In Alabama we have one of the top aerospace research and development cities in all the world (Huntsville), the thriving and tradition-steeped-yet-forward-thinking deep water port city of Mobile, one of the globe’s most innovated bio-tech and bio-med hubs in Birmingham and beautiful sites and scenery, from the pristine Cahaba River to the glorious Little River Canyon.  Yet, sadly, especially in the world of politics, Alabama is burdened with disappointments.  

 So that’s why it’s so damn nice when — even if it’s in the realm of college football and not in the realm of Senatorial elections — there’s something to celebrate here.  And celebrating we are!  Except for the Auburn people.  But they don’t really count.

 All the best – and, again, Roll Tide.

    I don’t know the slightest thing about football. But I was born in Huntsville, my dad worked for NASA for most of the earth orbiting and moon landing stuff up until the shuttle came around, and my daughter’s boyfriend lives in Mobile.

    I miss seeing you around.

    I’ll indulge but I don’t know wtf you’re talking about.

    Crimson Tide is a fancy way of saying red tide as far as I’m concerned.

  1. Hmmm.  I lived outside of Huntsville for a year as an outside agitator about 40 years ago.  I have ex-in-laws there.  And some great stories.  And I’ve been a closet Tide Supporter for a long time.  Since the Bear.  Since Willie Joe.

    To me, nothing is sweeter today than Bama’s beating that sanctimonious proponent of “facial evangelism” Tim Tebow and Urban Meyer, his crypto-sadistic boss.  And making Tebow cry makes it especially wonderful.

    I know these sentiments aren’t exactly enlightened. So be it.  It’s a pleasure nonetheless.

  2. I gather this is a big deal? heh. UF is my alma mater but I dont do football….not now, not then, not ever.

    Congratulations… I guess. 🙂
