The Alabama Crimson Tide are the main show in the deep south. Hang around town on a Saturday, and you’ll hear chants of “Roll Tide!” all over the place.
Tide fever sweeps through the area, especially during rivalry games, such as when the team squares off against LSU. And even though the red colors run deep, they have nothing to do with politics, as this cartoon shows.
