Alabama football fans will have to wait another week to see Tua.
2020 has been the year of delays and postponements. Alabama football should have started their season this weekend, but it was delayed due to COVID-19. Instead of that, there was supposed to be a documentary on FOX about Tua’s recovery from a devastating hip injury. Well, fans are going to have to wait a little longer.
The documentary has been delayed a week due to weather delays in live sporting. FOX had drag racing on the channel, but it went over considerably. Instead of continuing the delayed schedule and playing the documentary after this live event, they decided to continue with scheduled broadcasting and push it back until Saturday. Tua Tagovailoa himself broke the news to fans on social media.
This news certainly disappointed plenty of Alabama football fans. Many scheduled their Sunday around watching this documentary just for it to never air. Instead, they watched hours of NHRA racing in hopes of seeing “Tua.”
Many vented their frustrations on Twitter.
The frustration is understandable. Most Alabama football fans haven’t seen any content regarding their Hawaiian prince since his hip injury. Miami Dolphins fans are wanting to get to know as much about their new face of the franchise as possible. Without a typical NFL Draft season or NFL preseason, people have been begging to get inside Tua’s head. Like most Alabama players, Tua’s contact with the media was minimal in college. He posted on social media and did his typical interviews, but it’ll be nothing compared to the press he will get in Miami.
While both Alabama and Miami fans are upset, there is nothing we can do about it now. We’ll just have to mark our calendars for Saturday, the day before Miami’s season opener. It’s a bummer to have the documentary postponed, but it just gives us something to look forward to this week.
