    Jesse Williams gets to speak with Australian Prime Minister

    You had to admit, this is pretty cool.

    This is also her very first Skype call - made to talk to a player for Alabama

    And her Wiki entry:

    Honey Badger can take what the Tide gives him and like it.

    Wow. How very cool. This had to be so much more special to him than meeting the American President. He deserves that special recognition from the head of HIS government. I can just imagine how he felt after the call.

    Jesse was a beautiful monster that wondered into our lives for a short time and took us to back to back titles. Im gonna miss him, hope he has a long great pro career.

    Considering she probably knows nothing about American football, that was a very nice thing for her to do.

    I can just see her watching the game, wondering why they're wearing helmets and why they don't kick the ball more often (ala Rugby).

    That said, I think Jesse would literally kill some people playing rugby. It's probably a good thing he came to play in a sport where protective gear is mandatory.

    Gotta believe after seeing him in the goal line offense, Jules was trying to sweet-talk him into playing silly mid-off for the Oz cricket team



    against England in the Ashes during the NFL offseason.

    Re: Jesse Williams gets to speak with Australian Prime Minister

    One of my all time favorites. I'm really going to miss his playing. My favorite play was when EL was running behind him at the goal line and Jesse popped Manti and absolutely flattened the safety. I laughed hard and long at that one.

    Anyone seen DownUnder posting anymore? I haven't seen them in a long time. Great poster. He was family or close family friends.
    Please stand behind our troops or feel free to stand in front of them.

    Loved Tha Monster! Wish we could have had him in the program the whole time. He'll be making big money at the next level.

    I kept wishing they had given him the ball and he scored a touchdown in the goal line formation. That would have been historical!

    Aussie Aussie Aussie! Oi Oi Oi!
    "What I would like for every football team to do that we play is to sit there and say, ĎI hate playing against these guys. I hate playing them. Their effort, their toughness, relentless resiliency, go out every play and focus, play the next day, compete for 60 minutes in the game, I canít handle that.í Thatís the kind of football team we want." - Coach Nick Saban, January 4, 2007

    Yeah, I am still here. Enjoyed every minute of the game, except the minute JW was hurt.

    Most Aussies would rather meet @thamonstar than the Prime Minister anyway, so she went for street cred.

    It has been a great cpl of years watching the Tide from up close and afar, and I will continue to be a fan. Bama has a whole new fan base as a result of Jesse.

    looking forward to seeing #16 next yr.
