Thanks to his success as a national championship-winning quarterback for Alabama and his relationship with America’s girlfriend, Katherine Webb, AJ McCarron’s day-to-day affairs have become a central focus for many sports fans. On Tuesday, one of his seemingly lesser moments was publicized. A Reddit user named RollTide03 posted a picture to the popular social media site that showed McCarron’s SUV with a boot on it. The photo was funny for a number of reasons — star athletes usually get VIP treatment around college campuses — especially at a football crazy school like Bama, so to see McCarron’s get fitted for a boot was shocking. Also, people on the ‘net love laughing at the misfortune of others, so this photo was an automatic winner. But it didn’t take long for McCarron to shoot down the story. The quarterback responded to someone over Twitter who asked him about the boot by saying it was a mistake that was quickly corrected. “nope sure wasn’t parked illegally. They messed up the tickets. So I got that [censored] off right then. Haha sry to ruin Ur tweet,” he wrote. McCarron then turned his aim toward the media for blowing up the story on what he suggested was a slow news day: news hurting that bad that y’all have to write ab me getting a boot on my car haha.. Man news is hurting. I got it right off & drove away — AJ McCarron (@10AJMcCarron) February 19, 2013 Yeah, it probably was a slow news day Tuesday, but, again, McCarron’s car getting a boot is pretty funny, even if the book was placed as a mistake. Then again, if Nick Saban’s car gets ticketed in Alabama, then McCarron’s probably would be too.
