Yeah, this probably won’t go over well in just about every corner of College Station.
The home of the Texas A&M Aggies, Kyle Field, is in the midst of a mammoth renovation project that will push its capacity from 82,539 (No. 17 nationally) to 106,511 (No. 3). Given the size and scope of the work being done, there are thousands of workers on the site.
And, based on one photograph, at least one of them is an Alabama fan. Or has a twisted sense of humor.
From SBNation.com‘s Doug Keegan:
Ouch. And pretty damn funny too.
That said, you can rest easy, Aggie fans, as ESPN.com writes that “[t]he picture was taken over the weekend and we’re told the Alabama flag has since been taken down.”
So, that’s that.
UPDATED 4:19 p.m. ET: According to FOXSports.com, the crane operator responsible for the prank was fired from his job. That might be a bit of an overkill reaction by whoever was responsible for the man’s firing.
