There is a saying on the internet for people coming late with news. /Duckworth’d. For the few of you that don’t know, it eludes to the passing of long time Portland Trailblazer’s center Kevin Duckworth, who quietly passed a few years ago. Yesterday news hit the web like a wildfire, some crazy ass Alabama fan poisoned the oak trees at Toomer’s Corner. In classic whackass form he called Paul Finebaum’s radio show and announced his act.
Those unfamiliar with the joint, it’s a lot featuring several large oak trees, many of them several decades old, that are rolled (se photo) after big Auburn victories. But it goes beyond that. To Auburn it’s their grotto, their Howard’s rock. It’s just plain special. And now it’s ruined. Done. Those trees that have been the mark of several generations are likely not going to make it through a chemical blast that will slowly suck the life of them. All because some asshole can’t handle the fact that the University of Auburn had a little success.
There is always talk about the biggest rivalry in college football, and Alabama/Auburn is right up there with Michigan/Ohio State when it comes to the top. There is also a point where it’s no longer about the rivalry, and more about being a brainless fuckface that ruins the fun a rivalry entails for everyone.
I don’t curse on here too much, but to the idiot that decided to pull this stunt. Not only do I hope you’re taken down in a court of law. I hope your ousted by the Alabama Crimson Tide fan base (whom I know MOST probably agree with me). I hope your forced only to read about games in your tiny 8×8 cell next fall. And when you pass, I hope that the Bear himself kicks your ass. That little stunt you pulled wasn’t revenge, or about the rivalry. It was about your small dick, and inability to deal with it.
I’m a Gator. I don’t care for either school. But I do respect traditions other universities have. I take offense when people ruin something for no fucking reason. Especially when that something takes decades to grow.
Piss off dude.
According to AL.com, $50,000 bond and a Class C felony charge of criminal mischief. Good work. Pray your judge isn’t an Auburn grad.
