I don’t know about you but I let out a big cheer when the Tuscaloosa Thread posted about the “long and taxing walk” to get to the upper deck of Bryant-Denny stadium. I felt like they were speaking up for me. Seriously, have you ever done that hellacious trek? I did once, and I have never entered the stadium again.

I guess I’m not the only one that says “heck no” to agonizing spiraling ramps.

The Tuscaloosa Thread also reported that good news is on the way. “Greg Byrne, the Athletic Director of the University of Alabama, said long-term plans are in the making to add around 20 elevators to the stadium, although it will likely be several years before they come to fruition.”
