Rising sophomore receiver Julio Jones gave Tide fans a lot of thrills last season. He really had his first "Hello World" moments when the Tide put up 35 points in the first half against the then #1-ranked Georgia Bulldogs in Athens last season. Then he made the catch that essentially beat LSU in Coach Saban's return to Red Stick (that's the French translation of "Baton Rouge").

But perhaps none of those was even his most impressive moment of 2008. A 'Bama beat reporter just discovered that Julio played over half the season with a sports hernia that required surgery after the season ended. Which makes this highlight from the 2nd quarter against LSU just seem out-of-this-world incredible to me:

That clip makes me so happy. :) Football draweth nigh!
