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.
