TOYS AND GAMES: Mass Exodus from Alabama
According to a story in The New York Times a mass exodus is taking place from Alabama to Georgia.
With Nick Saban as their witness, a Red Sea of Alabamians has swarmed across the state border to seek:
A) The promised land
B) The Fountain of Youth
C) A new wax museum featuring authentic Bear Bryant figures from the Namath era
D) A location to buy Powerball tickets.
If you guessed D you are correct. Alabama — along with Alaska, Hawaii, Mississippi, Nevada and Utah — does not participate in the Powerball game. Not to worry, the Peach State is good for something, right?
No doubt Alabama’s 45-40 win over Clemson in Monday night’s National Championship Game has created a positive vibe for Alabamians, who could be heard whistling, “Luck Be a Lady” on their journey while hoping to find the success of a random onside kick en route to a $1.3 billion pay day.
A $2 Nassau is one thing, but 22-year-old golfing sensation Jordan Spieth earned $53 million last year according to Golf Digest. Who needs Powerball with a swing like Spieth’s?
Now that the NFL has approved the Rams moving from St. Louis back to Los Angeles — where they left in 1995, will Roman Gabriel come out of retirement to play quarterback?
Finally, don’t you hate it when you don’t forward a chain letter and die the next day?
