Hello, my Alabama friends. No, that title stinks. RIP ENGLE IS EATING YOUR CAKE AND YOU WILL LIKE IT.

Many months ago, your very own kleph posted a nice little thread over at BSD. That post exploded, revealing to me that Alabama fans and PSU fans may share a cultural bond reminiscent of the way in which Brits and Americans often get along quite naturally. It also further revealed that I am an insane person. Do not mess with me; I am insane.

Anyway, the time has come. Before we go anywhere, I must post a special picture. A picture that is near and dear to my heart. The Tide and the Lions first met in the 1959 Liberty Bowl. PSU won 7-0. After the game, the organizers - who were apparently awesome and full of foresight - forced the two coaches - Bear Bryant and Rip Engle - to share cake.

The picture is amazing on many levels. First, Rip Engle is smiling like a devil because he knows this is a priceless, priceless moment. That face is the greatest example of "s**t-eating grin". Second, Betty Draper is involved for some reason. Third, Bear unmistakably wants to murder Rip, but Rip's got the knife. And hey, Bear says to himself, it is good cake.

And with that, I wish you guys a good game, hopefully free of injuries and full of fine football.
