BustedCoverage- If you’re an Alabama fan looking for love, we have the place for you, BAMAmeetup.com, a dating site for Alabama fans. BAMAmeetup.com is a dating site that offers profile creation, matching, and searching – along with messaging through an email network and various events with the goal of helping Alabama fans find love with other Alabama fans.
“We’re thrilled to offer this service to Alabama fans,” said Shane Munson, Sports Dating Inc.’s Founder. “We released a dating site for Kentucky fans in July 2015 and have had a tremendous response. When looking at other fan bases to offer this service, Alabama has a great following and was an obvious choice.”
Black People Meet? White People Meet? Christian Mingle? J Date? None of those sites bring like minded people together quite like 'BAMA Meetup'. It seems ridiculous to say a person's sports fanhood could say more about them than their skin color or spirituality, but when that allegiance is to the University of Alabama then it is absolutely true. After all, who do you think is a more universally praised figure in the South, Jesus Christ or Nick Saban? If it was the difference between back-to-back National Championships you can bet your ass Alabama fans would renounce their faith. Shit, some of this people screaming 'Roll Tide!' every Saturday are the most racist people on the planet, but that's not going to stop them from rooting for Derrick Henry when the game is on the line. If you're a Bama fan then there is a strong to very strong chance that that's what you identify yourself with the most. Race is only skin deep and religious views can change over time, but once that blood runs Crimson it runs Crimson forever. Nothing says "till death do us part" quite like a mutual understanding of your partner's tendency to live and die depending on the outcome of a weekly football game.
I actually think the best thing to come out of this site isn't the fact that it makes it easier for Bama fans to fraternize, but that it saves non-Bama fans from accidentally interacting with Bama fans. Ever dated a fan of a rival team? I don't care how much you love the person, it's the most unbearable feeling one can experience. I am not saying I would ever lay my hands on a woman, but I am saying that the time I went out with a Rangers fans was by far the closest I have ever been. Sit in the same room with a person that you're sleeping while they are rooting vehemently against your team and you might just find yourself starting to sympathize with Ray Rice. Let's just say that if the postgame sex isn't filled with hair pulling, ass slapping, and fueled by hatred then your doing it wrong. I would imagine that loathing feeling is only exacerbated by being a college football fan in the South. There is just too much on the line on a week-to-week basis to introduce that conflict of interest. So yeah, I am glad that the Tide finally has a place to get their collective love life rolling, but I am just as happy for the Auburn fans that had all their nemesis' moved to one online cess pool.
