God is Good, Nick is Great, I Just Blew a .08

Sometimes the Comedy Gods just tee it up. Case in point: MZone reader JR sent us the following that had us howling.

First, check out this picture...


It's from the online edition of Alabama's TimesDaily and the caption read:
University of Alabama head coach Nick Saban receives a kiss from Colette Connell of Tuscaloosa as he is mobbed by Alabama fans at the Tuscaloosa Regional Airport Wednesday.
Colette Connell. Remeber that name. Because she was also mentioned in this Tuscaloosa News article the same day reporting on Saban's arrival:

Colette Connell, one of the more exuberant fans at the airport, even had her own Saban cheer: “Praise the Lord, God is so good, Nick is now in the Bama hood."

Later that day, Connell was arrested for driving under the influence.
Hopefully God is good enough to recommend a good lawyer. Also, we here at the MZone would like to praise the Lord for making blogging so easy with stories like this.

P.S. I wonder if Nick could smell the alcohol on her breath in the picture above.

The video is even better.

If you people think Benny & Yost's take on "Bear Cartoon Violence" was pure satire, think again.

I saw that vid yesterday BiB, you couldn't satire that up any better. That shit is pure gold for any Auburn fan. How about the geezer later in the video asking Saban to sign his chest? Just damn.

I am laughing so hard my side hurts. Classic stuff.

Poor Saban looks like he walked onto the set of My Name is Earl.

Andy,

This is why I'm working my tail off right now - so that I can afford to buy some Hill Country ranch property some day. My wife and I have already agreed we're going to call it the "RUNNOFT"

P.S. Nick must have figured he landed at the wrong airport and was back in Baton Rouge on Saturday night where you can smell the bourbon in the stands at field level. Who says you can't go home again?

Erik at has that chick's arrest mug shot up on his blog site for those that care to see.

Is it me, or did the Fox station insert a fast-forward blur about mid-way through the video since yesterday? It's the part right after Chester first "adjusts his collar" for the man boob autograph request. I think they inserted that blur to save some Tuscaloosa face.

Someone should really keep stats on birth names in AL to see a rise in the given birth names,
For boys: Nick, Nicholas, Phin-Killer, F. Nick (Auburn fan)
For girls: Saban, Nicole, Laces-Out

TitleIX said...

MIAMI skank vs. 'BAMA skank.

Smooching a married man, blasphemy, bad white rapping and a DUI? Do we have a new candidate for the Blog Co-ed Showdown?

When your entire fanbase is on SSDI and lives in trailers, throngs are readily available to show up mid-day at the airport during the week...drunk. The funny thing is that word leaked out about the crowd showing up at the airport. All those crimson necks thought they could sneak their Camaros and F150s out of the sheds and down to the airport to see the second coming of Bahr, but the title pawn folks got wind of it and it was repo-mania while the manboob autographs were being sought.

Fortunately, there was a truck stop near the Tuscaloosa airport. Suffice it to say that a .08 wasn't the only thing that got blown that afternoon and the bammers that either were or brought a female were able to "negotiate" a ride home.

The had his index finger together with his thumb, his hand was about a foot from his chest, Nick was signing something for him that is why he is looking down.

NS put this on himself, HE WENT OUT INTO THE CROWD.

For the barners/furry ratines on this site...

Michigan is still paying Chris Webber right?

AS for trailers, excuse me if I don't point out that driving through 90% of Michigan is a ghetto full of trailers and unemployment....nice job sending all of you auto-industry down here, where its appreciated and not unionized/taxed/restricted to death by economic warfare artists.

And if you are a barner...well then, you are the most hipocritical moron I've seen on the internet, such big words coming from the farm...I didn't know barners could say such things, see illiterates like Carnell Williams and James Brooks are my only experiences with barners...

Nice job cheating with Tubs for the past 6 years, your 7-8th and record probation is coming...

They interviewed that woman on the news here in Tuscaloosa. She just seems to be bat-shit crazy with or without alcohol. Wow...just wow.

...just meant to say that the video is incredible. Makes "My Name is Earl" look intellectual. Nick looks to be truly in shock...

Here's a "pre-kiss" interview:

Bammer pays Saban $32M over 8 years GUARANTEED MONEY, with NO BUYOUT clause. As one of bammer's famous alums (and a true representative of both the team and the fan base) once said "Stupid is as stupid does"...
