Alabama fan’s National Title Ring Hat is fantastic (photo)


Roll Tide, indeed. After photos began to surface early in the day, the interwebs have been abuzz on Thursday over the phenomenal hat sported by an Alabama Crimson Tide fan at the SEC Media Days function.

And as things often go in situations like these, the young man with the blingy cranium-capper has been identified, effectively starting the clock on his 15 minutes of fame.

The young man’s name is Shannon Villa. He is (obviously) a die-hard Crimson Tide fan who hails from Birmingham. He took a day off from his job at Walmart to take in the many sights and sounds of SEC Media Days. Villa staked out a spot in the lobby of the Wynfrey Hotel early in the hopes that he could get the BCS National Title cap signed by head coach Nick Saban.

For the Win got the inside scoop on where Villa obtained his amazing lid. It was made by an outfit called Championship Ring Hats, which has its own Facebook page. Villa told the site that it cost him a whopping $300. But if you ask me, it was money well spent.
