There isn’t a whole heckuva lot to say about this one. The Alabama Crimson Tide — long ago known as the Red Elephants — won the BCS Championship Game on January 7th over Notre Dame. It was Bama’s second title in a row and third in four years.
Yesterday, the Ringling Bros Barnum and Bailey Circus arrived in Birmingham for four days of performances. Eight of the circus’ elephants were decked out in Alabama gear — including a massive houndstooth hat on one — and marched through the city’s streets as a salute to Tide football (and as one great big commercial for the circus).
