We can’t stand Alabama, but as fans of the University of South Carolina we don’t sweat them too much. Why not? Because last time they “rolled” into Columbia, S.C. our beloved Fighting Gamecocks waxed that No. 1 ass.
Anyway, this week we are ALL Alabamans … and we are ALL screaming “ROLL TIDE!” after a group of college students were busted in Walton County, Florida for … gasp! Enjoying spring break.
“What you’re about to see is hard to believe,” tightly wadded local TV anchor Tom Lewis of WJHG TV 7 reports.
The report goes on to describe how these hooligans are in jeopardy of losing their scholarships because of atrocities like “leaving pizza under beds” and “spilling beer.”
The horror, right?
The money line? When the reporter asks one of the spring breakers if he thinks it’s funny to be arrested (real probing journalism there).
“It’s hilarious. Roll Tide,” the young man responds.
Damn right, dude. “Roll tide!”
Again … maybe if law enforcement focused a little more on real crime and a little less time cracking down on underage drinking, all of us would be safer.
