Nick Saban’s Car Got Ticketed by Attendant Hoping for Alabama Tickets

Nick Saban may be a god in Alabama, and he may have his own statue, but even he’s not immune to receiving parking tickets.

Saban was in downtown Birmingham Monday to speak to a Monday Morning Quarterback Club in the Harbert Center. Media members left the club after hearing Saban speak, saw a parking meter attendant beginning to ticket the coach’s car.

After saying she was just doing her job, the woman joked that it might help her score tickets to a Bama game. Here is a video of the car being ticketed courtesy of al.com.

If Saban will drop an s-bomb over a question about conference realignment, I can only imagine his reaction to receiving a parking ticket. That probably wasn’t a pretty scene.

    Good for the parking attendant.  Celebrities should not be above the law.  Look at Andrew Bynum and the number of parking  spaces he took up  right after the loss to Dallas.

    I’m guessing she didn’t know it was Saban’s car when she began doing it.

    I assume a red zone is a fire hydrant…should have towed the mother…

    So what if it was Saban’s automobile. If you’re in violation throw the flag.

    How in the many moons of Saturn is this news? Just because I’m an Alabama fan and only lack a shrine to the team because of space concerns doesn’t mean that I think he’s infallible. Ultra-rich megacoach gets fined for much less than a lunch at Ruth’s Chris. Film at 11. Ugh. That said, when Alabama destroys both Tigers in the SEC, this won’t matter. Even though kickoff is 11 days, 7 hours, and 32 minutes from now, Bama-LSU isn’t that big a deal.

    While it may generate emails and comments, it’s really interesting that this is something found on a sports page. I hope that running this here is not an indicator of the quality of news… oops, wait a minute, I’ve got to move my car, I think it’s illegally parked! Gotta go!

    Alas, you are probably correct.
