Well-known Georgia tractorist Dave Helton sent me a very nice photo this morning of something he describes as an Alabama bass boat.

I report, you decide:

Now, maybe I'm just trying too hard to make excuses, but the guy's red ball cap does have the University of Alabama logo on it, and there are many Bama fans outside of Alabama, so this might more accurately be labeled a Crimson Tide bass boat, so as not to offend the rest of us here in the state who would have been smart enough to strap a styrofoam cooler on there.

Dumb ol' hick.

1,001 uses for leftover home insulation.

Or are those egg cartons strapped to the bargain-basement captain's chair?

It does appear to be insulation board, which makes the exclusion of a cooler even more unforgiveable. I mean, he could have built one in instead of strapping one on! Sheesh. These Bama fans are something.

aren't you glad I lost that picture of you?

Ya gotta have a beer cooler on board! That boat is definitely lacking! And a dangling stringer for the catch.

Yes I am, Dave!
