Hello, Gumps! If you love Alabama and love crosswords then I have a treat for you. Below is an Alabama Crimson Tide themed crossword puzzle. Not every question is about Alabama but I think you’ll figure it out.
Sorry, phone addicts. You will have to go old school and print this out.
[ED.NOTE: This is my first attempt at creating a crossword puzzle and it is not as easy as you might think. So if you are one of those a-holes who feels it necessary to bring up some BS semantics to try and correct me (you know who you are), I swear to gawd I’m going to hunt you down and stab you in the neck with a rusty fork. Other than that, enjoy!]
The answers will be posted on Monday.
