Roll Tide Yuletide
I see no sign of peace on earth and little evidence of good will to men, but in the South, with the certain exception of fervent Auburn fans, many football lovers' one Christmas desire is for yet another national collegiate championship for the University of Alabama. Even in this stodgy household, we will likely be shouting "SEC" and not because the Securities and Exchange Commission is about to pay us a visit, but because we too partake of Bread and Circus to distract for awhile from the grim proceedings of our daily lives. Yes, many televisions in Dixie will be the focal point when the title game is played, and even those who abhor violence will hope a great deal of it is visited on those Golden Domers by the angry elephant carrying the old pigskin.
