Alabama fan sports crimson artificial eye with ‘BAMA’ written on it

Tuesday September 8th, 2015

An Alabama football fan is using her artificial eye to show just how deep her love of the Crimson Tide goes.

Mary Farr lost her left eye in 1975 in a plane crash, so she had a crimson artificial eye with “BAMA” written in white made in anticipation of the 2015 season.

Farr is a true Alabama super fan, as not only did she graduate from the school in the 1960’s but also her middle name is even Bama, a name she got not from the state or school, but from her grandmother, who was named Alabama, according to WBRC-FOX 6.

The Crimson Tide diehard said she plans to wear the extreme new eyepiece for all of the team’s games this year.

As outlandish as the prosthetic is, Farr is not the first to have the idea, as a Seahawks fan also has an artificial eye with the team’s logo drawn on it.
