    there was a group of us freshman year that went almost every spring semester weekend to the old theater at the end of the strip. it was fun and a nice introduction to weird culture for a relatively sheltered dork from haleyville.

    i think they still have regular showings at one of the theaters in atlanta.

    I mean at the end of the day we're watching a sport that is little more than simulated violence so cussing in chants seems on brand to me and the family environment stuff a joke. Like most contact sports, football is a sub in for melees and other blood sports being illegal or unseemly today. There will be some cussin' too, folks.

    But that's just me, the sociobiological genious.

    Yeah I’ve never got the idea that Alabama football is or ever has been a “family” environment. Should it be??? Sure but again it’s not, just a myth created by the older crowd.

    Kinda like trying to make Bourbon Street “kid-friendly”.

    I never understood the "love affair" with the song. It doesn't mention Alabama at all. It does mention Tennessee.

    It's not, or shouldn't be though of as a family environment? Really?

    I mean, I can maybe get on board with us clarifying the definition of what a family environment is, but if Alabama football shouldn't be thought of something you can enjoy with your kids then what the hell is the point?

    Again, maybe we shouldn't be clutching our pearls at some things that we do, but geez. Some of my fondest memories of childhood involved going to Alabama games. Help me understand where I'm looking at this the wrong way.

    Country music, also they are from Fort Payne and Lookout Mountain and probably spent a lot of time in the state.

    Not a strong enough case for me. Maybe "My Homes in Alabama" would be more appropriate!
