Reverend Alabama Fan Threatens Beat Writer With Baseball Bat


On Sunday,’s Michael Casagrande published an article comparing Alabama to their next opponent, LSU. There was nothing too crazy written by Michael — it’s mostly statistics on the two teams with a good number of them favoring Alabama.

For whatever reason, this set off an Alabama fan, who is apparently a reverend, so much that he emailed Michael threatening to beat him up with a baseball bat. (Again, the article really isn’t a big deal.)

This vague threat of violence was emailed to me by a reverend. Not kidding.

Reverend Bama fan wasn’t done there, either. He then told Michael to take his talents to Auburn before dropping physical threats again:

The reverend, Round 2.

The reverend may be pissed, but it looks like the story is a big hit.

He won’t be happy if he knew the story that started this rage is the most read story on our site today.
