I don’t know who won that Iron Bowl caption contest, but it was fun to watch. It was a surprisingly civil competition, which makes me wonder: Are Alabama and Auburn fans the key to bringing the country together politically? No matter. Too complicated.

This contest referenced my colleague Ramsey Archibald’s series of compelling data stories about the real non-football differences between Alabama fans and Auburn fans. To sum it up: Alabama fans love MMA cage fighting stuff. Auburn fans prefer golf.
