Rollback Tide? BCS Trophy Displayed At Wal-Mart

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.

A Quick Recap Of A Wild And Wacky Sports Day

Luckily for Ziegler, all of the girlishness is offset by the manly gold chain he wears around his neck. That said, there can be no more embarrassing part of the ensemble than the garish Walmart bag.

Your full recap of the crazy day after the jump.
