Well, yesterday Rick and Bubba rolled into town for their latest book, Rick and Bubba for President. If you are not familiar with Rick & Bubba, they are a huge radio morning show primarily played in the South (along with a few places in the North – Maine and Alaska comes to mind).
I took advantage of their visit to Huntsville and attended Books-A-Million to grab their book along with the crew’s autographs. It was a very long wait – 3 hours – and even they were surprised how huge the crowd became. But I grabbed their autograph on my book, along with a few pictures (which came out badly as the interns were taking the pics (can’t blame them, they were new to the scenario and probably never seen or handled such a huge crowd.
The biggest highlight was when they were heading onto their bus – I happened to of stopped them to get their autograph on my General Lee. Hit the jump to see the pictures from the event! Oh, and you can click them for a bigger pic.

Don Juan loved the idea of autographing the car (he is a huge Dukes of Hazzard fan). As I told Bubba inside, he was shocked when he saw it behind the bus as according to him: “I thought you had a model car you wanted to sign, not a real one!”
