Even in Papenburg, Germany at the Meyer Werft Shipyard where the Disney Fantasy is currently awaiting a float out tomorrow -- an Alabama Crimson Tide fan gives a big thumb's up to the National Championship contenders for Monday night's game. Well, actually it's my friend, Jason Lasecki (Public Relations Director for Disney Cruise Line) who happens to be a Michigan (Go Big Blue!) fan -- the 2012 Sugar Bowl Champs!
When we were working on a project together in November (during the first Alabama vs. LSU match up), we were in Los Angeles, and I brought Jason and other members of the team Alabama sweatshirts. He was such a good sport that he donned the shirt during that game and brought it with him to Germany while promoting the Disney Fantasy's float out on January 8. Of course, another from the team also is there but forgot his Alabama sweatshirt. Yet, don't be too harsh on Jonathan Frontado -- he thought the "A" on the chest stood for "Andi." (That still wins big points with me!)
Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog, the Disney Cruise Line Facebook Page and the Disney Cruise Line News' YouTube Channel for all the latest information about the new Disney ship -- plus, Jason's and Jonathon's travels. They're fun to follow! And you can watch Alabama WIN the national championship game on Monday, January 9 at 7:30 p.m. (CST) on ESPN.
I'm not sure how "folksy" Jason and I will be next September when Michigan and Alabama face off at Cowboy Stadium in Dallas. I hope to be reporting from there and provide you with first-hand knowledge of what happens when Crimson clashes with Blue. (I have a feeling it won't be a nice shade of lavendar.)
Roll Tide Roll!
