Yesterday, I made a stop at Walmart for a couple of items; and as I came from the back of the store to the front in the center aisle between the men's and women's clothing, the scene inside made me beam with pride.Over my head, all I saw was Alabama decorations.  More than it being about sports, I took a moment to realize the spirit of "family" and pride that surpasses every boundary whether it be racial, social, economical, sexual orientation, or even gender.  We are undoubtedly united by sports; but the heritage of Alabama is rich, with each of us having our own reasons for loving the places we live.

Last night, I came across this video, featuring an original song by Birmingham native Latrisha Redmon. Welcome to Alabama!
