Alabama Synagogue Will Not Allow Any 'Roll Tide' or Football Talk

Tristan ThornburghSocial Media StaffSeptember 6, 2013

One of Judaism's High Holy Days, Yom Kippur, falls on a Saturday this year, which happens to coincide with what is likely Alabama football's biggest game of the year, its revenge matchup against the No. 7 Texas A&M Aggies.

While the state of Alabama will be in a frenzy on Sept. 14, those attending synagogue will not be allowed to speak of the game, give high-fives or yell "Roll Tide" for the entire day. Auburn fans are included here as well, so don't think you get a free pass on your "War Eagle" chants.

For those even thinking about speaking of college football, the announcement reminds us that "all of us will suffer" if anyone does.

Hat tip to UpRoxx for the find.
