78,000 Bama Fans Show Up to Watch a Practice Game

Last year around this time, I was astounded and almost insulted, that over 92,000 people showed up to watch the Alabama Spring football game know as A-Day. Honestly, 92,000 people to watch a sporting event of absolutely ZERO consequence. Like don’t you have any grass to mow or laundry to wash or something? Saturday baseball isn’t enough? You’d rather watch a game that doesn’t count for anything? Apparently so, because the buzz surrounding Bama football is almost as great as it was last year when Bama was fresh off of hiring Nick Satan Saban.

This Spring, over 78,000 fans showed up to watch A-Day at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa. That was the second highest turnout at A-Day, only second to last year’s Saban-a-palooza. I don’t get it. I really don’t. I guess it’s just the same crowd that defends Bobby Petrino like he’s the patron saint, and Saban like he’s the savior. And you wonder why these money-grabbing unscrupulous coaches will leave any situation for the kesef? It’s because these 78,000 fans will show up to watch any signs of life from their football team and celebrate their head man like he’s a god. Goodness, I wish fewer would have shown up, but Bama football is apparently king.

Now when regular season games come around, Bama fans will be wise to purchase their tickets using Ticket Solutions. That’s one of the site sponsors and they have excellent Alabama football tickets, Arkansas Razorbacks football tickets, Florida Gators football tickets, and they can also provide all your SEC Championship Game Tickets. Now those are the games worth showing up for.
