Cardinals “rivalry” breaks out over BCS National Championship Game - A Hunt and Peck

Yeah, not really, but that is the more interesting headline.

If a fan knows anything about Adam Wainwright, non-baseball, it is probably the fact that he is from Georgia. That or he loves barbecue. For now, let’s focus on the Georgia thing because that is what is relevant here.

Monday night the Alabama Crimson Tide took on the Georgia Bulldogs in the BCS National Championship game. As a native Georgian, Waino was understandable excited. So excited, he was in attendance for the game sporting the Dawgs apparel.

Unortunatley for Waino, his team was unable to hold on to the substantial lead it had built into the fourth quarter, partially due to a gutsy change a quarterback from Nick Saban, replacing Jalen Hurts with freshman Tua Tagovailoa. Tagovailoa is from Hawaii, which brought another set of allegiance into play from another Cardinal:

Kolten Wong seemed pretty happy for the player from his native state.

So you win some, you lose some.
