Have You Called Your Mama Today?

Apparently this was a pretty legendary commercial about 30-35 years ago:

I have just a few reflections. For one, I love how Alabama's coaches have had low, booming voices. In fact, if Nick Saban lacks in anything, that may be the only thing. But Gene Stallings & Coach Bryant just had great voices. I think Coach Bryant came by his by smoking his unfiltered cigarettes.

But also that personal touch at the end of that commercial. Boy that hits you doesn't it? And I guess I decided to post this tonight so that you'll be moved to call your Mama. Because I'm with the Coach on that one: I sure wish I could call mine.
