AP: Bryant play a hit for Shakespeare Festival

AP: The 26 years since legendary Alabama coach Paul “Bear” Bryant died have not dimmed his fame nor the urge for ‘Bama fans to revel in his story. Now a drama about the dirt poor Arkansas farm boy who became a college football icon is coming to the city where he showcased the Crimson Tide and recorded many of his 323 victories. . . .To add a little nostalgia, the Birmingham performances are being sponsored by Coca-Cola and Golden Flake, which also sponsored Bryant’s popular Sunday afternoon television shows. The shows, which featured Bryant drinking Coke and eating Golden Flake potato chips while narrating replays of the previous day’s game, are recreated in the play. (enitre AP report embedded below)
