This post has very little to do with college football and a shit ton to do with college football fashion. So, my Chip&Pepper University Alabama retro tee was supposed to arrive via free ground shipping from UPS on Monday. When I arrived, the UPS notice was waiting for me, telling me that I needed to be home to sign for the package. I signed the back of the UPS slip and noted I wanted the package to be left and re-posted the original. Same thing happened on day two, so I tried again. Today was the final day for shipping, and once again, I arrived home after the 2:00-5:00 p.m. UPS drop off time. I was pissed until I discovered that I could pick it up at the UPS center in Bogart. I was stoked and planned to pick it up after work. Then, I began my afternoon constitutional saunter down Boulevard. When I turned down Boulevard from Virginia, I saw the huge brown turd of the UPS truck parked about half a block up the street. I began to sprint. I was nearing the truck when it pulled away from the curb. I said fuck, but didn't stop pursuit. Instead, I became George Teague pursuing Lamar Thomas in the 1992(actually 3) Sugar Bowl and I knew I would catch the truck if the driver stopped again before heading to the top of the hill. Fortunately, the driver stopped a few houses down and I evaded a white Honda while quickly crossing the street to catch the driver. He was very nice and gladly gave me the package containing my shirt. I went home and tried it on, and it was pretty much worth the wait and trouble. Pretty bad ass!
