Today is Nick Saban’s birthday.
In case you were unaware, Nick Saban is one of the highest profile, highest paid coaches in sports; $7 million a year. And while that’s all well and good, him having all of that money makes it very difficult to get him a gift that is something he would actually want.
Forget about need, it’s highly unlikely he is in need of anything with all that dough sitting around the house. And so, a question as old as birthdays themselves, what do you get someone who already has it all?
How about a button that says ‘That’s Bullshit’ when you push it? Very classy.
Saban on his birthday present: "I really only got one, it was one of those things where you push the button & it says' 'That's bullshit.'"

Nick Saban, who is one of the more straightforward and no nonsense coaches in football, seems like the perfect recipient for a present like this. It’s likely something you’ll hear him hollering at his bulldozer of a football team the Alabama Crimson Tide anytime he finds the underperforming.
Alabama looks to be well on their way to another undefeated season and likely National Championship. Anything can happen, I guess, but it doesn’t seem like Saban’s Tide looks beatable this year.
And if anyone else says differently, reach for that button and slam on it as quickly as you can.
