re: 150th anniversary of Battle of Mobile Bay re-enactment at Fort Morgan... - Govt Tide
I have a childhood friend who swore he once saw a ghost while exploring the fort. Supposedly there is a ghost of a confederate soldier killed in this battle that haunts the fort. ...

re: 150th anniversary of Battle of Mobile Bay re-enactment at Fort Morgan... - Govt Tide
I haven't been to Fort Morgan itself in years. There is an annual Civil War reenactment in my hometown that I'very been to once and have to admit it's pretty cool. You can always tell when it's going on because you can hear the cannons going off from the other side of town. It's amazing how loud tho...

150th anniversary of Battle of Mobile Bay re-enactment at Fort Morgan... - Govt Tide
....is this weekend. For anyone in Gulf Shores/Orange Beach this weekend you may want to check out Fort Morgan this Saturday. They're are having a large reenactment of both the battle at the fort itself and the naval battle. It's a really cool event if you're a Civil War history buff. P.S. It's...

re: Who are the best one hit wonders in music? - Govt Tide
"real one hit wonders" I heard a song that epitomizes a true one hit wonder. I almost forgot about the song before hearing it on 80s on 8 and they didn't have another hit that I know of. The chorus in this song is catchy and addictive as heck and puts you in a good mood. The Other Ones - Holid...

"such as I-65 from Mobile to Montgomery or I-10 from Pensacola to Tallahassee" I didn't think it was physically possible to find a more boring stretch of interstate in the Eastern U.S than Mobile to Montgomery.

It's hard to take what you say seriously when you equate metro Birmingham with "Huntsville, Montgomery Savannah, Tallahassee, and yes Augusta".

re: Seriously, if not Bham -- where should the SEC - Govt Tide
I concede your first few points but the last sentence is a joke. Nearly all of the handful of jobs at the SEC headquarters are lucrative jobs financially. Having to live in Bham isn't going to stop bright people from moving there to take a position especially given what these positions pay. It sure ...

"Birmingham is 212,000, Augusta is 195,000" So? Lowly Montgomery is 202,000 and isn't close to Augusta and is nowhere even remotely close to Birmingham. Mobile (metro) at 600,000 (based on same criteria you judge Augusta) is as important as Augusta and has a port as big and important as Savannah ...

This is true. Atlanta is it's own entity apart from Georgia. Atlanta is the Southeast's version of the Los Angeles area except that it has even less of an identity than L.A. Atlanta is a sprawling bloated soulless monster of a metro full of transplants with no identity. It's why it's considered one ...

"Alabama is 4.6 mil" Where did the other 250,000 Alabama residents go since the last annual census. "Birmingham (metro) is more Augusta (750,000) than Atlanta" That explains the 250,000 missing Alabama residents in your post. Apparently most of them migrated to metro Augusta and inflated A...

This is BS and kinda like saying the NY Mets have just as many fans nationally as the NY Yankees.

It probably is generational to a degree because you never heard of these incidents until about the last 15 years or when the internet and cell phone technology exploded onto the scene.

re: Seriously, if not Bham -- where should the SEC - Govt Tide
I agree that Bham isn't as much of a melting pot as Nashville although I'd add MSU to the list of UA, AU, and UT grads and to a lesser extent LSU and Ole Miss grads that dominate the area. Nashville feels more equally dominated by UT, UA/UK, and AU fans in that order with plenty of other SEC fanbase...
