Bama Playlist: This Takes a Weird Turn

With a week off you would think I would have a treasure trove of things to write about, but Bama just makes things not fun. Their coach is a listless, football monger that pumps out championship after championship. I respect the utter lack of joy he takes in getting paid millions.


So what do we do? We remember we have beat them before. We remember that football is fun and after this week, the regular season is half way over. (SHIT!) And we talk about a creepy doll house that was built on little girls grave which also served as the location of her post-mortem birthday parties!

The Earles family Christmas card, circa 1948

Did you get all of that? I know it was a lot to digest. Yes Alabama is weird, and a little behind the times and apparently absolutely terrifying.

Little Nadine Earles sadly passed away in 1933. Her father, Captain James ‘Good Idea Having’ Earles, was in the middle of building his daughter a playhouse. Now, I am not here to make fun of a little girl, or child death, but her parents decided it would be a good idea to move her playhouse ON TOP OF HER GRAVE! Also, as I said before, they held birthday parties there many times. How this has not been made into a horror series yet is beyond me. Apparently, this monument of pants-destruction is still intact in in Lanett, AL. If anyone visits and makes it back, do not ever contact me. I’ve seen Asian horror films, I know how that shit works. Oh and if Alabama isn’t creepy enough, there is also a playground in the middle of the cemetery so the lost souls can have a swing. GTFO BAMA!

That whole thing might be a little dark, but hey we play the Tide this week and they make everything dark and terrible. I hear Texas is having a cold front though, that’s exciting. And College Station should be a ton of fun this weekend. So let’s remember to enjoy these last two months of football. Be loud, stay safe and BTHOalabama!
