There are subtle signs year in and year out that alert us to the fact summer has transitioned into fall.
The leaves changing and littering the lawn. Temperatures taking a precipitous dip and not coming back up. LSU fans blowing up the phones of the opposition the week before a big game.
Oh yeah, it’s football season.
Yes, those wacky Bayou Bengal fans are back to their silly cell hijinks yet again, nagging certain Alabama players ahead of their huge SEC showdown this weekend.
Much like it’s been with Tim Tebow — minus the death threats, presumably — in the past, it seems as if Tide starting quarterback Greg McElroy is the prime target of their middle school tactics.
“I think Greg had some blocked calls today,” Crimson Tide linebacker Cory Reamer said according to the Mobile Press-Register. “I don’t know what that was about, but my phone has not rang, thank goodness. I won’t be changing my number this year.”
As I’ve said in the past, kudos to a minority of the LSU fans for having the resourcefulness to keep finding a way to get their fingers on the opposition’s numbers. Then again, when you have no life, I guess it’d be easy to find the time to to devote your resources to such an inane hobby.
