It was our pleasure to have on the delightful Amy Margaret - tailgater extraordinaire, Crimson Tide appreciator, creator and purveyor of beautiful jewelry, island person.
Originally an Alabaman, she now lives on Bainbridge Island, where everyone knows your name.
We talked about Grant’s love life, what it is like living on an island, how to start a jewelry business, community, the best way for hapless partners to buy pretty things for their wives, and ferries, among many other things.
From her website:

Born and raised in Alabama and now living on the West Coast, Amy Margaret, designs and handcrafts jewelry with a deep appreciation of nature and love of people. Her affinity for travel and culture comes through as she incorporates symbols of far eastern philosophy into her colorful and versatile pieces. Her designs shape metal and stone into artful reminders to be happy, stay grateful, and spread the love. These accessories are born from a desire to make every woman look and feel her best.

What Does That Mean?
This inaugural edition of What Does That Mean?, we will explain the meaning of Alabama’s Crimson Tide.
“Early newspaper accounts of the university's football squad simply referred to them as the "varsity" or the "Crimson White". The first nickname popular with the media was the "Thin Red Line", which was used until 1906. Hugh Roberts, former sports editor of the Birmingham Age-Herald, is credited with coining the phrase "Crimson Tide" in an article describing the 1907 Iron Bowl played in Birmingham with Auburn a heavy favorite to win. The game was played in a sea of red mud which stained the Alabama white jerseys crimson. The headline for the article was "Crimson Tied", referring to the 6-6 tie Alabama had with Auburn, who had been heavily favored before the game.”
Per Steely Dan:
“They got a name for the winners in the world
I want a name when I lose
They call Alabama the Crimson Tide
Call me Deacon Blues”
