Watch Alabama fans race 100+ yards for Nick Saban's autograph

New, comments

This happened, as it does every year. It never gets old.

Alabama fans raced across Bryant-Denny Stadium on Fan Day in the hopes of getting Nick Saban's autograph. Yes, adults with real lives and jobs trundled across a field as quickly as possible in the hopes of having a football coach sign their merch.

You might think that's a fairly ho-hum thing to watch, since it happens annually, but when shot from four different angles by AL.com and scored to the stadium sound system piping out Mountain's "Mississippi Queen," it becomes a melange of amazement you can't take your eyes off.

Here are some things you could confuse with running Bama fans:

  • A scene from "World War Z."
  • The ending of every episode of "The Amazing Race."
  • TV appraisal time at "The Antiques Roadshow."
  • Disney World, all of it.
  • The running of the bulls.

Update: Redditor Honestly_ has spliced the video of the 109-yard Alabama fan run with the Auburn radio call of the 109-yard "Kick Six" [hat tip to commenter ajkst1]:
