It’s been awhile since I’ve posted and I apologize. I’m going to start with a family picture. My Uncle Steve, who lives in Mobile, owns a float building company and designs floats for Mobile’s Mardi Gras. He has five or six parades that he does each year.

One of the groups he makes floats for had a theme of “red” for their parade this year. He had floats like “Little Red Riding Hood”, “Red Ants at a Picnic”, and “A Red Apple for the Teacher.” My favorite float was one officially titled, “Our Blood Runs Red.” The float was, as you may have guessed from the picture above, about Alabama football. I particularly like the fact that Alabama had to go back six years to find an Iron Bowl score they like. However, what I like most was the other name people gave for the float: Redneck.

The other person besides me in the picture is my Uncle Steve. And, if you look closely at the elephant, you can see an AU sticker on it.
