The New “Welcome To Alabama, Home Of The Crystal Ball” Picture Is Fake, But It’s Still Cool
Alabama loves its football. We all know that much.
So when a picture starts circulating showing that the I-20 State Line from Mississippi to Alabama has changed its “Welcome To Alabama the Beautiful” sign to read “Welcome to Alabama, the Home of the Crystal Ball”, some people can probably believe it.
But sadly, it’s not real. It is, however, one heck of a Photoshop job.

One last shot, for comparison’s sake:
