The state of Alabama erupted in celebration following the Crimson Tide’s 52-24 win over Ohio State in the CFB Playoff National Championship Game. The win gave Nick Saban a record seventh championship and turned Tuscaloosa into one giant block party.
While students flocked the streets, one man felt like running. That man was Forrest Gump. Starting in Greenbow, the former Alabama return man and ping-pong world champion was seen sprinting through the streets of Tuscaloosa in the wee hours of the night.

It was a humorous sight in the middle of a massive celebration on “The Strip.” I will not pretend to be shocked that college kids decided to gather in masses to celebrate a championship despite an ongoing pandemic. College kids are going to be dumbs college kids. We’ve picked enough fights on the internet over last month that this I refuse to get involved in another one. Regardless of the circumstances, footage from the celebration is a sight to behold.
