ON 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.
On my right was a family member from another state.
“What is it with you people in Alabama?” he teasingly chided me. “All you care about is college football!”
“Yep,” I answered.
