‘Bama: 9/11 Avatar Should be Bryant Hat


Wednesday is September 11th, the 12th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on New York’s World Trade Center. And the official Facebook page for Alabama athletics is asking users to change their profile photo to ... Bear Bryant’s hat?

Reads the official post:

“September 11, 2013 marks the centennial of the birth of legendary football coach Paul W. ‘Bear’ Bryant. To celebrate Coach Bryant’s life and legacy, we are asking all Alabama football fans to change their profile pictures to this image on September 11th. Save this photo to your computer, then upload it as a new profile picture then learn more about the Centennial Celebration at bryant100.com.”

Facebook user Logan Mackenzie Turberville has the best response to this: “This makes me embarrassed to be an Alabama fan and just in general blows my mind. It’s crass and in incredibly poor taste.”
