The annual Alabama Fan Day will take place Sunday at Bryant-Denny Stadium. Fans will get an early glimpse at the 2014 Crimson Tide by watching a team practice, and then they’ll get the chance to collect autographs from players and coaches.
One fan is very excited for the festivities.
Thanks to Busted Coverage, we get to meet 32-year-old Bobby Hunter, an Alabama fan who began to camp out for Fan Day at 10 a.m. Wednesday morning – a full 103 hours before practice begins on Sunday. For real.
Hunter told Busted Coverage that he’s using vacation time from work to camp out and that he’ll sleep in the tailgating chair for all four nights to maintain his first spot in line.
He also has a well-crafted sign depicting the extent of his fandom.
The bottom apparently reads: “To all Bama fans: If you want to go to heaven and walk the streets of gold, just remember the password, ‘Roll Tide Roll.’”
If that doesn’t bring a tear to your eye, I don’t know what will.
Busted Coverage also has a 10-minute audio interview with Hunter, where he further explains his passion for Alabama football and what he loves about Fan Day.
