I normally pull for the underdog in most athletic contests, unless I have a real rooting interest in a particular team. When an SEC squad plays in a BCS Championship Game, that constitutes a real rooting interest. So I would have been pulling for Alabama to beat Notre Dame a week from Monday in Miami anyway.
But now I want the Tide to kick the hell out of the Irish.
As we told you a few weeks back, several Notre Dame fans were buying up and tweeting about T-shirts bearing the message: Catholics vs. Cousins…
Ah, a nice jab at the stereotype of inbred Southerners.
Well now Irish fans are buying up another offensive shirt that also makes fun of Alabamans and Southerners:
As we suggested last time around, maybe it’s time for folks in the Yellowhammer State to start printing “Pachyderms vs. Pedophiles” shirts to see if any Notre Dame fans take offense.
Just a shirt? Sure. A shirt — a second shirt — that insults millions of Americans who happen to live in the South. And this one has the added gall to insult millions of Americans across the country who can’t afford nicer homes. Classy.
So congrats, Notre Dame fans. I’d taken up for you earlier this year when ESPN’s Rick Reilly decided to rip your football program. Now you’ve turned the one man south of the Mason-Dixon line who respects your history and tradition against you. Very much against you.
Anyone know where a man can buy a Houndstooth hat?
