Birmingham Jews love their Crimson Tide

Birmingham Jews love their Crimson TideON THANKSGIVING at my son’s house, I found myself at the end of a long dinner table, some in-town family members on my left. They were chatting about college football, especially the Alabama-Auburn game that would be played two nights later. No surprise there — that’s what people in Birmingham do on Thanksgiving.
