Nick Saban Enters the Pearly Gates

It’s funny because it’s true:

After Nick Saban dies and enters the Pearly Gates, God takes him on a tour. He shows him a little two-bedroom house with a faded Alabama banner hanging from the front porch.

“This is your house, coach,” God says happily.”Most people don’t get their own houses up here.” Nick looks at the house, then turns around and looks at the one sitting on top of the hill. It’s a huge, beautiful two-story mansion with white marble columns and little patios under all the windows. LSU flags line both sides of the sidewalk and a huge LSU banner hangs between the marble columns.

“Thanks for the house, God,” Nick says. “But let me ask you a question. I get this little two-bedroom house with a faded banner and Les Miles gets a mansion with LSU banners and LSU flags flying all over the place. Why is that?”

God looks at him seriously for a moment, then says, “Nick, that’s not Les Miles’s house. That’s mine!”

At least Nick made it to heaven, right?
