Lee Corso was recently in Tuscaloosa for an Alabama football game when he noticed a ‘special phone’ near the Bama bench. He asked Head Coach Nick Saban what it was used for and was told it was a ‘Hotline to God’. Lee asked if he could use it, Saban replied, “Sure, but it will cost you $200.” Lee scratched his head, but thought, “What the heck, I could use some help picking games.” He pulled out his wallet and paid $200. Lee’s picks were spot-on that week.
The following week, Lee was in Athens when he noticed the same phone on the Bulldogs bench. He asked what the telephone was for and Kirby Smart told him, “It’s a Hotline to God. If you want to use it, it will cost you $500.” Recalling the previous week, Lee immediately pulled out his wallet and made the call. Again, Lee’s picks were perfect.
The next weekend, Lee was in Fayetteville, Ar when he noticed the same telephone by the Razorbacks ’ bench. He asked Sam Pittman ,”Is that the Hotline to God?” Sam replied, “Yes, and if you want to use it, it will cost you 50 cents.” Lee looked incredulously at Sam and said, “Wait a second, I just paid $200 at Alabama and $500 at Georgia to use the same phone. Why do the Razorbacks only charge 50cents?” Sam replied, “Because in Fayetteville , it’s a local call…Welcome to God’s Country.” WPS!
