Funny Church Signs You'll See in the South During Football Season
Sometimes, a church sign in the South just can’t help but make its allegiance known with, say, a “Roll Tide” or “War Eagle.” It starts innocently enough. The guy that edits the church sign each week gets worked up, slips in a dig, retreats. A sign guy in enemy territory claps back, waits patiently. A holy Hatfield-McCoy situation breaks out. In the distance, gameday chants ring. Yes, even our churches talk smack.
Down here, football is something akin to religion. We break bread in the form of chicken wings, celebrate fellowship with a tailgate, and pray for a miracle every now and then—or to land a Hail Mary pass in the fourth quarter. So it’s only natural that the lines might blur at times between football and real church. (It’s on holy ground, luckily, and kept mostly civil.) Here are 11 hilarious times church signs talked smack during football season.

Well, the Bulldawgs must’ve caught wind of the message Bama sign guy was sending and clapped back. Did this feud occur the week before the National Championship, perhaps?

We’re imagining this is what every Atlanta Falcons fan thinks each week. That Super Bowl loss was one that even church couldn’t make sense of.
