If you hurry you can still get in line to see the BCS Championship Trophy down at the Tuscaloosa, Ala., Wal-Mart, where it will be on display today for the masses who will also appreciate the store’s low, low prices on trucker caps and plastic dinnerware. It’s part of a mini-tour that will also find the trophy at the Gardendale, Ala., Wal-Mart on Sunday, before it heads to the University of Alabama campus for good. One oogle per customer, please.
Anyway, too bad nobody wanted to see it. Here’s a twitpic of the line today to view the trophy … wait, do I detect shoplifting occurring in aisle seven? Call security! It’s a madhouse, as you can see.
