Face it! This guy's noggin is notorious

  • You've seen his massive mug at sporting events across the country
  • Who is the man behind the grimace?

His giant, eye-bulging grimace has become a tradition at University of Alabama sporting events. He’s even taken it on the road to try and distract the pros at games across the country. That oversized cardboard cutout face has even landed him on Conan.   

But who is the man whose mug strikes fear into the heart of not-so-easily-distracted athletes?

HLN’s Carlos Diaz introduces us to Jack Blankenship and gets the backstory on his notorious noggin.
