‘Bama Fan to Name Her Baby ‘Saban’?
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.
