Bama Players Read To Kids For Dr. Seuss's Birthday

Theodore Seuss Geisel was a big part of many of our childhoods and even now, kids still enjoy the stories of "Dr. Seuss"

Saturday, March 2nd is his birthday. He died in 1991 at the age of 87.

Saturday, at the Tuscaloosa Transportation Museum, Vinnie Sunseri and CJ Mosley will be reading some of Dr. Seuss's most popular stories from noon til about 2pm.

There will also be Dr. Seuss themed activities for the kids, as well as snacks.

I love that our boys do stuff like this. And they do it, even when it isn't publicized. Nick Saban sets this example for them.

When Courtney Upshaw got in trouble at Alabama for a fight with his girlfriend, Saban said the punishment was "internal", but we later found out that Courtney agreed to go on several ride alongs with police officers.

Saban does such a good job of recruiting great young men, as well as building them at the same time.

A few years ago, I worked for a foodservice distributor that a lot of schools get their food from. One of our truck drivers came back with a story from this elementary school of how he was carrying food into the place and in the next room was filled with kids who were being read to by someone. That someone was Nick Saban. This didn't make the news or anything. It's just the way things are with Saban in Tuscaloosa. He cares about the community and our great state and does everything to be a positive part of it, as well as passing that ethic along to his players.


The World's Most Powerful Man Gets To Meet Barack Obama. Again.

For the 3rd time in 4 years, the Alabama football team will be travelling to the White House to meet with the President. At this point, Obama should should just have an Alabama mancave in the West Wing to display all the Bama jerseys he's gonna end up with.

"See you next year" - President Obama, to Nick Saban, THIS TIME LAST YEAR. Roll Tide!

"We don't get many opportunities to meet the president, spend a minute with him, talk to him a minute, have him acknowledge something you accomplished. I think it's something really special for our players. It's really unique for them" - Nick Saban

And since it only happens once a year, you gotta take advantage of the opportunity
