    Am watching the whole sports staff of a local TV crew, along with mouth Paul Finebaum and Alabama coach Nick Saban sitting in someone's kitchen eating breakfast -- made by a catered chef.
    No sports, all yucks -- and unfunny at that.
    Last year, they played football out on the lawn. this year, the camera is focusing on Saban eating breakfast with Finebaum and the sports director fawning over him like a child taking his first shit on a potty.
    Hey guys, who the fuck cares?

    The 90,000 that shows up for the intrasquad game.

    Not defending it, but there are people who will watch.

    OK... Is it news? Does it show objectivity?

    Objectivity? This is football, and you're talking objectivity?

    Local TV news?
    I know some people think Alabama is another planet, but dude, seriously, why would you think local TV news would want/need to be objective?

    Is it news?

    Yes, the "news" is our people are buddies enough with coach to eat with him!!! Hopefully AP will pick it up.
