Message from JFK

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=285E1jy7c-k

John F. Kennedy recorded this message after Alabama's 1961 regular season, congratulating them for going undefeated. Originally played during a rally, evidently. Not quite the same as flying them to the White House like they do now, but still pretty interesting, and a reminder of our history; 1961 would go on to be the year Bear Bryant won his first National Championship at Alabama.

Incidentally, some have joked that this may be where the term 'bammer' came from...
