Alabama’s Fan’s Face An Instant Hit [VIDEO]

If you watch college basketball like I do you can’t help but be distracted by the face signs that fans and students have been holding up in the background during a game.

Fans are doing everything they can to distract or mess with the opposing teams during the game. Celebrity heads have included a snarling Saddam Hussein, a grinning Hulk Hogan, a sultry Marilyn Monroe, and recently an Alabama’s fan face is all the rage on the net.

Alabama freshman Jack Blankenship thought those big heads were a fun idea, but he wanted to add his own clever twist to the trend. As a result, the Tuscaloosa native has begun showing up to Crimson Tide basketball games this month with a giant picture of his own contorted face in tow.

ESPN2 cameras caught him with the sign during Alabama’s 69-67 overtime victory over Ole Miss on Feb. 4, prompting announcer Pam Ward to remark, “This guy … who does that? I mean, who makes a picture of themselves?” Birmingham News photographer Hal Yeager also captured Blankenship making the same unusual facial expression as he is in the picture during Tuesday’s loss to Florida.

Since the photo and video hit the social media sites it has turned Blankenship into an instant celebrity  on campus whether he likes it or not. He has gained 200 Twitter followers and he’s now recognized everywhere on campus.

Blankenship plans to launch a stand-up comedy club at Alabama soon and aspires to be a comedian someday. In the meantime, he’ll keep bringing his now-famous sign to basketball games — perhaps with some new twists.

Maybe Scott and Lisa should show up at the next concert with their faces blown up and wave them in the crowd. Wait a minute…their heads are already blown up! LOL
