Thousands line up to get picture taken with Alabama’s national championship trophy

An estimated 6,000 to 9,000 University of Alabama football fans viewed the school’s national championship trophy today at the Skyland Boulevard Walmart in Tuscaloosa, the store’s manager said.
A team for Dr. Pepper, the presenting sponsor of the Coaches’ Trophy, provided the crowd estimate and also took pictures of about 4,500 of those fans with the glittering hardware, manager Chad Souers said. Others took photos with their own cameras.
