The GOP Primary is going to be much more interesting than it was in 2012....

The excitement is palpable today in the Magic City. Birmingham, the birthplace of Taylor Hicks, beat out other major international cities Lima, Peru and Ufa, Russia for the honor of hosting the event. An event that features some of these exciting sports:
- Canoe Polo
- Trampoline (Synchronized, ...
| Political Talk|| What Happened to Romney in Ohio... - FairhopeTider on 1/21/15 at 12:52 pm|
SIAP but I stumbled across this report last night. Its all about Ohio but obviously that was a microcosm of what happened nationally. Seemed pretty interesting considering Romney is testing the waters again. It sheds some light on how awful a campaign Romney ran. I like Romney but some of these exce...
| Political Talk|| A Simple Change To The SOTU: Question Time - FairhopeTider on 1/20/15 at 8:45 pm|
Instead of the usual boring, scripted response from the minority party....Have a 30 minute Question Time right there in the chamber.
Its been this way for years before Obama, but the POTUS lives in a bubble. They rarely, if ever, put themselves in a situation that isn't 100% controlled or manufa...

| Political Talk|| Who Will The GOP Nominate Out Of This Group? - FairhopeTider on 1/10/15 at 7:11 am|
I'm sure that I'm forgetting a few names but that's a pretty deep bench and a much stronger field than 2012. Much like the 2014 SECW, it doesn't mean the winner of that group will win it all, but it will be...
| Movie/TV Board|| Die Hard with a Vengeance Alternate Ending - FairhopeTider on 1/7/15 at 8:59 am|
I'm sure this has been posted before but this is the first time I've seen this clip. Pretty dark scene for John McClane. Seems out of character and I can understand why they didn't use it...but its still a solid scene. Would've been awesome if they had used it and never did another Die Hard movie ag...
| More Sports Board|| College Football Playoff schedule going forward.... - FairhopeTider on 1/6/15 at 8:47 am|
It looks like next year, the two semifinals will be played on New Year's Eve. Not sure what to make of that. Seems unusual to have such a big sporting event on New Year's Eve, when a lot of people still work that day and the second game might not finish until around midnight.
The setup for the N...
| Alabama Sports Board|| Now that we've all processed the Sugar Bowl loss... - FairhopeTider on 1/4/15 at 2:22 pm|
TL/DR....but I think these are some reasonable assessments:
- Alabama won the SEC, beat our rivals, and made the first ever CFB playoff. Really difficult to get upset over that and literally every other program, minus 2 at the moment, would trade places with us for that success. Losing to OSU doe...
| Movie/TV Board|| Goldeneye - FairhopeTider on 1/4/15 at 10:05 am|
Pretty good Bond movie and probably without a doubt its Brosnan's best. Its not that over the top but it keeps you entertained. The franchise kind of went off the rails for the next three movies.
My God what an awful soundtrack though.
| Alabama Sports Board|| Treating 2nd and Short as a throwaway down - FairhopeTider on 1/2/15 at 9:25 am|
Let me say that I'm still a Kiffin fan and we wouldn't have been in the Final Four this year without him. However, last night we got stuck in the mindset of forcing things on offense instead of going with what was working. That seems to be a trend in some of our bigger game losses over the years. It...
| Alabama Sports Board|| Another disturbing pattern - FairhopeTider on 1/2/15 at 12:44 am|
Our inability to close out the second quarter and start the third quarter. That's been a bad trend all season long. Not sure what we do at halftime but our opponents seem to come out smelling blood....

I'm sure most of y'all have seen this story already. Very tragic and senseless. Hard to imagine something like that happening in that part of Bham. He was basically killed over $20. Everything that is being said about him basically says he came to the US for a better life, waited his turn to become ...

| Alabama Sports Board|| ESPN's Championship Drive - FairhopeTider on 12/12/14 at 8:59 am|
Watched a majority of it last night. Two hour panel featuring Pollack, Kanell, and Galloway. Even though its the usual cast of characters, you'd never know Alabama was in the playoff. It was actually kind of astonishing. No doubt in my mind that in the media's eyes, Oregon is the favorite going into...
| Coaching Changes|| AU Beat Writer claims CWM is being offered full control of the defense.. - FairhopeTider on 12/11/14 at 11:39 am|
Meaning Muschamp has full control over all decisions concerning the defensive side of the ball from recruiting to in-game decisions and can't be overturned by Malzahn. Basically, it sounds like they're saying Muschamp is being offered Defensive Head Coach.
This is all from Jay G. Tate. Can't see ...

| Alabama Sports Board|| Two Things I Like About This Team - FairhopeTider on 12/8/14 at 10:15 am|
There are a lot of things to like about this team, but we've gone over them plenty on this board. Here are two more that I really like.
1) This is probably the first time in Saban's tenure at UA that the team at the end of the year is heads and shoulders above the one that took the field at the e...
