BIRMINGHAM (not England) -- Greetings from Alabama, a place Nick Saban supposedly calls home (don't know if I believe him or not).
Cool town with some of the best eats in the South. Have already cleaned some ribs at the World Famous Dreamland, and killed some green fried tomatoes at the Whistle Stop in Irondale.
Here for the nuptials of Joe 'Gator Clause' Goodman and his lovely new bride Sarah. All of Birmingham's social elite is here, along with celebrities like Tim Tebow, Urban Meyer, Saban, Jacques Martin and a host of friends from The Miami Herald and Sun-Sentinel.
OK, Tebow, Meyer, Sabes and JM aren't here. But they sure are missing out on a great weekend in Sweet Home, Alabama.
That's the cake pictured above. Looking forward to tearing into it later on.
Tomorrow's report from Savannah,Ga. Have a date with some shrimp and grits.
