WATCH: Man successfully prank called Nick Saban

A Tennessee man with a phenomenal southern accent somehow managed to successfully prank call Nick Saban over the weekend.

When Saban picked up the phone, the man introduced himself as “98” and then asked about Alabama recruiting “his boy,” a kicker out of “Happy Valley.”

Saban seemed to be fooled by the call considering he answered all of the prankster’s questions. But it was kind of impressive to hear how well Saban sounded on the phone when he clearly didn’t know the person on the other end, and he was on vacation at the time.

      Why would a guy from Happy Valley Pennsylvania have a Southern accent?

    Ha ha! Somebody made a prank call. Oh the new ground these millennials cover on a daily basis, what would we do without them….

      “Millennials” is used in the media to infantilize, discredit, and instill distrust of an educated, hard-working, low-earning, fed up generation of 30-somethings living through the worst of capitalism, police brutality, government corruption, and a resurgence of hate violence.

      The way millennials are referred to is nothing short of gaslighting. They inherited an environment and society that is unsustainable, but their protest and demand for revolutionary change is written off as some sort of tantrum.

      No, Bob and Karen, you’re killing us all.

      But here’s the thing, you’re only convincing yourselves that they’re a generation of gold stars and participation trophies. In their relatively short adulthood thus far, they’ve proven to everyone that they can innovate, adapt, and persist despite the barriers to progress you’ve created.

      Turn off Sean Hannity.

      LOL. I’m not hurt, nor am I a millennial.

      Good effort, though.

    UKBB does have a point every generation has looked down on the desires for change the next generation has called for and implied their weak or stupid in some way shape or form. That being said even if a change they call for may be positive not all of the changes a new generation gets end up that way, each new generation has a tendency to take a good change wayyy to far to the point that society responds and goes way to far in the other direction. That has been the history of this country since the 2 party system was founded. And now instead of the old working with the next gen they look at them as children who will make the same mistakes and stand their ground. Of course if your rich then nothing needs to change unless it stops them from seeing how you keep your money. By the way this comes from someone with a conservative view on most things.
