Alabama’s National Championship victory is celebrated in the streets of Tuscaloosa
Tuscaloosa, Alabama — The happiest place on Earth was once again Tuscaloosa as The University of Alabama Crimson Tide claimed their 3rd National Championship in 4 years. Crowds of fans looking to celebrate took to the streets of The Druid City moments after the Tide’s dominating victory over Notre Dame.
Ground Zero for the celebration was the area of University Boulevard known as “The Strip”, which is located between The Houndstooth Bar and Egan’s Bar. Police initially kept fans out of the streets, but they eventually relented and allowed the celebration to pour out from the sidewalks. The party was then in full swing.
The fans who couldn’t make the trip to Miami, Florida got to experience the next best thing. They cheered well into the night in support of the Crimson Tide and just a few blocks down from Bryant-Denny Stadium.
Tuscaloosa citizens have gotten a lot of practice in celebrating on “The Strip” with the National Championship victory over Texas in 2010 and LSU in 2012 along with the celebrations this season after the LSU victory, the back to back losses by Kansas State and Oregon, and the clinching of the SEC Championship.
This celebration, though, trumped them all.
It was a celebration of Alabama’s 15th National Championship. It was a celebration of a dominating victory against Notre Dame, a school that has had Alabama’s number in past meetings. It was a celebration of Nick Saban’s “Process”. It was a celebration of all things Crimson Tide.
It was a celebration to set the stage for an attempt to pull of a historic three-peat next season.
