(Newser) – Fummmmble! National champion Alabama was showing off its $30,000 crystal bowl trophy over the weekend when a player's father tripped on a rug near the display and sent it crashing to ground, reports the AP. It is now in "thousands of tiny pieces," notes AlabamaLive. The school gained temporary custody of the Waterford bowl after winning the BCS title in January. It sounds like the school will replace it, and the unidentified dad won't be stuck with the bill.
