For our RBR newbs, Friday Hoodoo is a sacred event that dates back to 2007. It is our weekly attempt to curry favor with the Football Gods by admitting our moral, intellectual, and cultural shortcomings in a very public manner. In plain English, along with our Sweetheart submission, we tell embarrassing stories from our past in hope that Alabama gets a W.


1. Embarrassing Admission. This is the classic and most used sacrifice. We have all done some stupid things over the years and the internet is the perfect venue for spilling the beans.

2. Eat something horrible or disgusting. The gods love physical sacrifice and what better way to show your dedication then by eating something that may lead to a trip to the ER? (by reading this you absolve RBR and SBNation of any liability for medical expenses related to or caused by your hoodoo)

This week the opponent is Texas A&M. We have been waiting damn near 10 months to enact revenge on Manziel and company and today is the day we secure a victory. 5026 already dropped his admission earlier in the week. It is now your turn to bring out the big guns, leave nothing behind, lay it all on the table and spill your soul for our beloved Crimson Tide. The football gods demand a sacrifice and the time is NOW..

Why Bammer is stupid...

If you listened to our podcast this week you'd know that my sacrifice was one that took both bravery and stupidity. Do not try this at home folks. Seriously, this hurt, a lot.

A few thoughts:

1. The banana didn't help. In fact, it made it much worse.

2. Once I drank all the milk (which did help) and ate the banana (which didn't) the combo of all that AND the pepper made me extremely nauseous. Bad idea.

3. WARNING: Hot coffee, though delicious, does not help with the burning.

4. I cut the video short cause I had to go get some ice, which helped a little.

5. One person in the hall way thought something really bad just a happened because I was walking around, with my hands over my mouth and tears running down my face.

6. Touching my eyes WAS AN AWFUL IDEA.

We better win by 50.

Roll Tide.
