Check out some historic hardware at the Bryant Museum

The Bryant Museum has a new exhibit up called CALIFORNIA ROSES TO SOUTHERN SUGAR that celebrates Alabama's post season accomplishments. As most of you know, the Crimson Tide holds the record for most bowl appearances (53) and most bowl victories (30) and the exhibit features eight trophies from the Rose, Sugar, Cotton and Orange Bowls. Photographs, videos and other artifacts from Bama's bowl games are included as well. If you're from out of town, make sure and check it out on game day.

Even if you don't stop by the Museum on game day, you can still enjoy the fruit of their labors inside Bryant-Denny Stadium. The Bryant Museum and WVUA are joining forces once again to present Crimson Classics, a series of replays of famous Bama games. The games will air on Fridays at 9:00 p.m. and again Saturday mornings at 10 a.m. on WVUA. Episodes will also play on the screens inside Bryant-Denny Stadium when gates open. The first week's game is the 1985 Georgia game.

There's also a new interview show called Crimson Comments featuring lengthy interviews with former Tide legends like Shaun Alexander, Harry Gilmer, Lee Roy Jordan, Chris Samuels, etc. Those will air at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesdays on WVUA.

Saturday also marks the annual Paul William "Bear" Bryant namesake day at the Bryant Museum. If you're named after the legendary Bama coach, the museum wants you to stop by and register your name with them.
