Mary Farr, according to WBRC in Birmingham, Alabama, lost her left eye in a 1970s plane crash.

This year, she decided to turn that into yet another way to show her Crimson Tide pride.

That's right. Farr has an artificial eye that is crimson and sports "BAMA" written in easily visible white.

"Why not?" she told the TV station. "I mean if you have to have any eye, a fake eye, you might as well have one that says 'Bama' on it. I'm wearing it for every game this year."

We should expect no less from Ms. Farr; Bama is her middle name. No really. According to WBRC, her middle name is actually Bama.

There might come a time when the sports fan world at large is familiar with the name Eddy Pineiro.

Here's why:

Yes, that's Pineiro -- who has committed to the University of Alabama -- hitting a 73-yard field goal. The NFL record is 64.

All the usual caveats apply here, of course: This is the Internet, so we can't trust anything to be 100 percent real. It's also a non-competition moment, so we aren't suggesting Pineiro will one day get the Crimson Tide three points from their own end zone. And then there's this: The kick took place in Davie, Florida, and likely aided by winds from one of South Florida's notorious storms.

Still, wow.

Not bad for a guy who, according to AL.com, originally was set to play soccer at Florida Atlantic, ended up at ASA College in his native North Miami Beach, Florida, because of NCAA clearance issues, recently switched to football, has yet to kick in a college game ... and was a virtual unknown to major college coaches until a kicking camp earlier this month.
