Alabama fans are crazy. You knew that already. It’s the outward demonstrations of their craziness, however, that keep on surprising us.
On Monday, an anti-Alabama Facebook page posted a photo of a pregnant woman who had written on her baby bump, “If Bama wins tonight I’m naming this baby Saban.” She even had the “a” in “naming” written in script, a la the Crimson Tide’s logo.
Well, Alabama dominated Notre Dame, 42–14, in the BCS title game. So a hospital could very well be welcoming little baby Saban into the world in the not-too-distant future.
While we respect the zealotry of Crimson Tide fans — they provide us with great story material, after all — we question the baby name choice in this instance. First, we don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl. Second, If the fan pictured follows through on her promise, the child will accidentally be called “Satan” by a teacher at some point. It’s just bound to happen.
That is, unless it attends Nick Saban High School.
