Can I Get a ‘Roll Tide,’ Please?

It’s only their 18th National Championship: Alabama defeated Ohio State, 52-24, for its third national championship in the College Football Playoff era. In a season significantly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, the Crimson Tide were able to come away with the first championship of 2021 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla and finish […]

‘The Merciless Indian Savages’

Because tomorrow is the Fourth of July — $17.76, baby! — now seems like a good time to recall the words of our Declaration of Independence. Because our public schools are a cesspool of organized ignorance, a few poetic phrases from the preamble expressing lofty sentiments — “all men are created equal,” etc. — are […]

Chiefs Come Back to Win Super Bowl; Halftime Show Unexpectedly Goes NC-17

  Does America want to see a middle-aged Puerto Rican woman shake her rump and climb a stripper pole? Like it or not, that’s what millions of Americans watched in the Super Bowl halftime show. Jennifer Lopez, age 50, starred in the show, and Todd Starnes was not amused: “Mommy, what’s a stripper pole?” I […]

He’s planning to make changes in 2020, with not dating white women chief among them. It’s a resolution he announced on Twitter […]

University of Tennessee Football Program Has Finally Reached Rock Bottom

  Morgan Hood is a worthless backstabbing whore who, perhaps not coincidentally, attends the University of Tennessee. While it would probably be unfair, even by the trash-talking standards of SEC football rivalry, for me to say that all Tennessee girls are worthless backstabbing whores, I think every Alabama fan will agree that Ms. Hood is […]

Roll Tide!

  After the conclusion of The Other Podcast Saturday night, my colleague John Hoge and I went to dinner with my brother Kirby who, thanks to generous support from the tip-jar hitters is now recuperating here. After dinner, Hoge dropped Kirby and I off at my son Jim’s house, where we watched the Alabama Crimson […]

A Great Football Saturday

For the opening of The Other Podcast, I did “College Football Scoreboard,” figuring that every real American cares as much as I do, because if you don’t love college football, what are you, a Commie? Assuming you are not a Communist, you had to love Saturday, because Alabama won big (of course), and there were […]
