    Pointy, you know as well as I do they're still fighting the Civil War in this state, just as they were in Bryant's time.

    What do Bama fans and maggots have in common?

    They can both live off a dead bear for nearly 30 years.

    Robert E. Lee treated his troops a helluva lot better than Bear did.

    Remember the battle of Junction Boys? Brutal.

    I look forward to the snow covered statue of Tennessee football coach Nathan Bedford Forrest

    On my last trip to Tuscaloosa I discovered that the University of Alabama was the Confederate West Point during the Civil War. There is a marker commemorating that fact near the belltower on campus.

    If by Civil War Icon you mean God....yes. Ugh.

    Great post TBF. That was/is always my favorite Bammer joke. One of the millions.
