It’s homecoming in Tuscaloosa, Alabama this weekend and that means the locals are about to throw the best damn parade in the SEC. The school will announce a 2012 homecoming queen, hold a pep rally bonfire tonight on campus (full festivities can be found here) and allow die hard Bama fans a chance to show just how crazy they are about the Crimson Tide. Take Bama fan Ray Hornsby – @ibrayman – the owner of TideRides.com. He’s been to a few homecoming parades. There was 2009 when he entered his pimped out Smart Car. Then there was 2008 when he was just getting started in his Alabama homecoming ride obsession. This is the year Ray takes things to the next level with his Alabama football helmet go-kart. According to Ray: I acquired the helmet from someone who bought it from a Sporting Goods Store that was going under.  The Helmet comes with a pedestal that holds it 12 feet in the air.. and a motor that rotates. Of course Ray is spreading the word that his giant helmet is coming to town. Can you blame the guy? When you have the baddest homecoming ride in Tuscaloosa, you puff out your chest a little bit. That’s just how a guy should roll. ROLL TIDE!   Filed under: Football
