The Legendary Bear Bryant


Paul "Bear" Bryant - Died January 26, 1983 at the age of 69. He was the legendary head coach of University of Alabama's football team.

What a great coach he was. He took the Crimson Tide on a winning streak that no fan will ever forget. We still love you Bear!

Once, when my judo club from Ft. Benning, GA, had a meet in Tuscaloosa, we all went out afterwards for dinner with Bear Bryant ( he and the major who was the head of our club were old college buddies ). We had so much fun - Bear Bryant was crazy. There was a fish tank at the restaurant we were at - he put his hand a pulled out a goldfish and ate it! That was back in 1962.
