Football Christmas has come and gone, and the Alabama faithful did not get the present we wanted. Amazingly enough, though, the sun did come up this morning and life will go on.
Thousands, probably millions of words will be written and spoken about the Alabama-LSU game. I haven’t read or heard any of them yet this morning, but I’m guessing I’ll read or hear the following:
- Alabama needs to improve their kicking game or get another kicker.
- Alabama needs to improve their passing game.
- Somebody needs to find out why one particular dirty player wasn’t ejected from the game.
- Somebody needs to find out why the catch at the goal line was ruled an interception.
When it’s all said and done, it is just a game, but last night’s game was certainly an intense one.
As for the Christmas analogy, I guess it falls apart in the end because we can’t take this present back and get the one we want.
