This 10 Year Old Bama Fan Broke Down The National Championship Game In A Way That Was Anything But Elementary
I don't want to say I wasn't left in awe by listening to a 4th grader go off the rip in giving a six minute exposition on the entirety of the National Championship game. When I was his age, my range of descriptions for sporting events I was emotionally invested in began at "stupid" and ended at "awesome". So, once I got to around the three minute mark I couldn't help but wonder if this wiz kid was wasting his seemingly limitless potential on college football's most foregone conclusion.
What I will say is that I would simply refuse to believe this 4th grader wasn't being fed talking points off-screen if he were rolling with anyone other than the Tide. Like, if there was a fanbase that's home to elementary schoolers who take a break from their 2 percent milk to turn their lunch hour into a legitimate SEC round table that would make ESPN's coverage look lackluster then it resides in Tuscaloosa. This is just another sign of the deep South's obsession with college football, and I'd say it's one that's a litttttttle better for their brand than every Bama fan with an arrest warrant screaming 'Roll Tide' while being taken into custody.
This kid has probably considered Nick Saban an actual god since he was old enough to wipe his own ass, but - to his credit - his form of worship is anything but blind. Alabama football is definitely a religion, but - contrary to most religions - it's not one whose virtues are increasingly hard to detect.
