It is National Signing Day 2011 and the University of Alabama is doing very well at this point of the day. The pleasant news that Pagan signed with Alabama was probably the biggest news of the day thus far.
But the real story of the day isn’t the recruits, the rankings or all the allegations that one school or another is cheating.
The most important thing of the day is Fax Cam available at RollTide.com.
This innovation allows Alabama fans to view the fax machine as it receives the official paperwork from recruits.
Yes. Fans really are willing to stare at a fax machine as names come rolling in.
Of course, there was a better reason to watch fax cam.
The University’s athletic department wisely allows some attractive women wearing short skirts to retrieve the faxes and post a list of the new signees.
It is the most interesting innovation in television since MTV launched the Real World or CBS gave us I Love Lucy.
If UA were smart, it would expand Fax Girl’s role. Perhaps keeping fax cam for everyday faxes. They could retrieve faxes for Mal Moore one day and then Nick Saban the next. Five days a week. All fax cam.
I know I’d tune in. I’m betting a few other guys would too.
