The Capstone gets ready for Alabama vs. LSU

Posted: Updated:
TUSCALOOSA, AL. (WSFA) -

The Capstone is abuzz as we tick down the clock between Alabama and LSU at Bryant-Denny stadium Saturday night!

Jim Eko is visiting from Vermont. Eko is one of those folks who loves college football and in his mind the SEC is the best.

"It's just a great atmosphere and we love it here," said Eko.

Glenn and Jessica Blair couldn't agree more.

"It's always been that way," Glenn Blair said.

Perhaps between the two the Blair's have the most unusual story. They've been Bama fans for a long time, Bama fans from Houma, Louisiana!

"I can't really explain why I'm Bama all the way," said Glenn Blair.

"For some reason I've never rooted for LSU. Of course when Glenn came along that influenced me even more," said Jessica Blair.

The funny thing about the couple is Mr. Blair never attended the University of Alabama and Mrs. Blair graduated from the LSU Medical School in New Orleans.

"One day I wore a Bama shirt during 'spirit day' at work surrounded by LSU employees and I was told to either change shirts or go home. I ended up changing shirts," Blair said laughingly.

The Louisiana couple brought along their two young daughters Grace and Olivia.

"I think it's cool they're Bama fans. I don't care either way but Bama seems like a pretty cool school to root for," said Grace Blair.

Jim Eko and the Blair's.. rolling with the Tide from different parts of the country.
