Back By Popular Demand: Your Friday Hoo Doo Thread

Somebody has to do something about the injury bug in Tuscaloosa. May as well be us.

OK, folks. We have heard you.

We know that you miss the Friday Hoo Doo thread, and that we are at least partly to blame for Alabama’s poor injury luck. The problem is, any one person has only so many stories to tell. I do not have the time or creativity to make something up every week just so we can have a thread.

I do, however, have an idea and modest proposal. None of these traditions are really about the writers anyway, they belong to the community at large. Why not feature some of your own infamous moments, in full color?

I have created a new email account,, for the express purpose of receiving Hoo Doo photo and video submissions. We will review them and select one each week during the season to feature. As usual, readers will comment below with their own tales.

The only criteria, being that this is a #familyblawg and all, is that all submissions must be PG rated. Please include a quick story behind the visual and permission to post. Videos will be published to Youtube if you send me a file, or you can send a link if it is already on the web somewhere that will allow an embed. Photos can generally be uploaded with no issues. Also, tell me how you wish to be credited, by name or your RBR username.

OK, I’ll start.

My mother(RIP) was a good churchgoing lady and had an affinity for a particular gospel singer named Babbie Mason. When I was about 12 she put my tone deaf self up to making a little karaoke-style video and well, you got eyes and ears. Enjoy laughing at my expense, I deserve it.

I figure that should be enough to get us through the Duke game with no major injuries, as long as y’all bring the heat as well. Have at it, but let’s not get too raunchy, aight?

Hoo Doo away, for the good of the team, and think about any photos or videos you have to submit to Football Loki in the future.

Roll Tide.
