Finebaum And Saban Magazine CoverOnly hours after news broke that University of Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron‘s  mom and girlfriend appeared together on the cover of Access Magazine, parody covers began surfacing on the internet.

Given today’s culture of high technology, it was only a matter of time.

The magazine serves the Mobile, Alabama area and bills itself as “The Bay’s First Women’s Magazine!”.

McCarron’s mom, Dee Bonner, and girlfriend, model and former Miss Alabama USA Katherine Webb, posed at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile in July for an article in the magazine’s “September Fashion and Football” issue.

This parody image which surfaced depicts the faces of  ESPN radio host Paul Finebaum and University of Alabama head football coach Nick Saban in place of the beautiful ladies.

Although the point of the parody cover is best interpreted by the observer, no doubt detractors of Finebaum and  rivals of the Crimson Tide will find it amusing.  Such is life at the top and both Finebaum and Saban are at the top of their respective professions.

A similar, although more harsh, parody GIF went viral yesterday depicting the same two gentlemen. It originated on a blog penned by a Texas A&M supporter.  The GIF spread so quickly that a second server was required to supply the demand.

If given the choice between the two framed magazine covers, rest assured the one of “AJ’s Girls” will be the one hanging on my wall.  I’ll leave the other for the less tasteless sports fans who don’t recognize true beauty when it hits them in the faces.
