Nick Saban Arrested!!!!!

I need to preface that this is a joke. LOL! I forget that not everyone is from Alabama and understand how folks live and die collage football around here.

Nick Saban is the former Miami Dolphins Head Coach and was hired by the University of AL to turn their losing team back into the winning champions of the glory days of the late Paul "Bear" Bryant. Alabama beat the GA Bulldogs last weekend for the first time since 1992.

Of late, Alabama fans have been beside themselves. And this is bleeding over to the other side as I got this in an email from an Auburn fan.........

Subject: AP-Tuscaloosa - Nick Saban Arrested!

AP-Tuscaloosa - Authorities arrested Alabama head coach Nick Saban in the predawn hours Monday at his home in Tuscaloosa on animal cruelty charges. Saban, 56, was charged with 85 counts of animal cruelty in an alleged attack which occurred Saturday night in Athens, Georgia. Police said that as many as 92,138 witnesses saw Saban and a large group of violent young men under his control hit, kick, crush and destroy a large pack of mostly-docile bulldogs.

One officer was quoted as saying, "I haven't seen bulldogs treated this badly since the Michael Vick case."

I am not from AL, but can still certainly appreciate the football humor in this one ( mom to three boys playing right now).
