You know sometimes watching the game in person is great. For instance, watching Alabama/Clemson in Glendale in person meant you could see just how small the windows Deshaun Watson was throwing into were, and how hard he had to run just to get into something like a reasonable throwing position. You could also see the shoulders of everyone on the Clemson sideline slump when Alabama pulled off the onside kick, because everyone on the field knew they were in an arena ball situation, and that one possession stolen was the entire ballgame.
Ooh! We also saw Rob Huebel, who was there because he went to Clemson, something you just found out was a real thing. DESPICABLE ME IS WRITTEN ABOUT STEVE SPURRIER. He’s the fart gun.
Anyway, you also miss some things you can only see on television, like Derrick Henry refusing to allow Jacob Coker to replace the fluids in his body. We saw this for the first time this morning, nearly a year after the game, and that’s a shame because it is DELIGHTFUL. If you can’t make it to the game, whatever game you happen to be going to, remember: it’s moments like these that you’ll get while people in the stands are trying to avoid getting into a fight with the drunk lady from Alabama being held back by her children.
p.s. You can’t avoid getting into a fight with the drunk lady from Alabama, she simply won’t let it happen.
You’re gonna fight her. Roll Tide.
