A defensive deity, inventor of the Concussion.
This poll has been making its way around the net the last day or so. I don't put a ton a stock in this type of thing, but I can see why it shook out the way it did. The simple fact is, for many folks around the county, they have a certain view of the south, and states like Alabama, that has been shaped by Hollywood, the media, politics, etc. Other than, "they love football" they know little to nothing about us. To many, we're are just racist, backwards living bumpkins who don't have dentists or internet access. And Alabama certainly has its fair share of problems, but man it is a hell of a place to live IMO. It has it all... 4 true seasons of weather, incredible food, nice beaches, rivers and lakes all over, mountains in the north, great state parks, beautiful women, some good universities, and yes, good football. Maybe most importantly, the people of the state care about each other (more than most others). I don't expect people who have never been east of the Mississippi or south of the Mason-Dixon line to understand any of that stuff. And I sort of hope they never do, because to be honest, I like Alabama the way it is, and I don't want them moving in and screwing up a good thing.
