Two boys are playing football at this park in a small town in Alabama when one of the boys is suddenly attacked by a crazed Rottweiler. Thinking quickly, the other boy takes a stick and shoves it under the dog's collar, twists it, and breaks the dog's neck, thus saving his friend. A local sports reporter who was strolling by sees the incident and rushes over to interview the boy. He tells the boy he's going to write the story and says, "I'll title it 'Young Bama Fan Saves Friend From Vicious Animal.'" "But I'm not a Bama fan," the little hero replies. "Sorry, since we're in Alabama, I just assumed you were," says the reporter and he starts writing again. He asks "How does Auburn Fan Rescues Friend From Horrific Attack' sound?" "I'm not an Auburn fan either," the boy says. "Oh, I thought everyone in Alabama was either for the Tide or the Tigers. What team do you root for?", the reporter asks. "I'm just visiting my cousin. I'm a Tennessee Vols fan," said the boy. The reporter smiles, starts a new sheet in his notebook and writes: "Vicious Little Redneck From Tennessee Kills Beloved Family Pet".
