A Reddit user sneaked onto the field of Bryant-Denny stadium under the cover of darkness, and left his mark in the dirt.
The Redditor, going by the handle chief_tuskaloosa, made his way onto the field while attending a wedding reception in the North ‘Zone’ area. According to the RollTide.com, the Zones can be rented out for $3,500, and does not include “Audio Visual Needs; Catering; Insurance; Overtime labor; Field Lighting.”
Finding an unlocked door leading to the outside stands, he “did what anybody would do,” and made his way to the field.
Bryant-Denny is in the midst of its yearly field resurfacing, so there is no turf to be found. The anonymous Redditor then tagged the field by inscribing ‘r/cfb’ in the sand. That’s the Subreddit – or subgroup – for college football, for those of you that don’t know the first thing about Reddit.
Here are the shots the Redditor took while sneaking around the hallowed grounds (we brightened up the originals a bit to show off more detail).
Presumably this one is the North end zone:
And here’s the field itself, looking (we think) end zone to end zone:
And finally, the tagging of the field.
The Redditor says he erased his work after snapping the photos. Still, after an incident like this, Alabama fans may have to give up their claim that they don’t junk up their own campus the way Auburn fans do.
What say you, Tide fans? Is this Barner-level vandalism, or just someone that was too full of Bama, and took an opportunity all of us would take?
