A wonderful Southern state. From Huntsville in the north to Mobile in the south, Alabama has a lot to offer. The entire state is steeped in history, with a lot of civil rights precedents set in Montgomery. Home to University of Alabama, which provides great SEC football year after year. Head down to the gulf shores, and relax as warm breezes blow in off the Gulf of Mexico. Everyone here is friendly and happy, unlike most parts of the United States. I see how some people have taken to saying BAMA as a sign of disrespect, mainly in the Washington DC area. That's fine.. keep your silly perceptions. I would much rather be sipping a margarita on the beach in Mobile instead of dodging bullets in DC. The only thing in DC is criminals and politicians..so just more criminals. All you yankees can stay up north, noone wants you down here anyways. God bless Alabama!
Washington DC resident: Damn it's cold. I can't even get out to shovel my driveway with all the bullets flying around.

Alabama resisdent: Gee, that's too bad. I'm gonna head down to the beach and watch the hotties in their bikinis walk by. Hey bartender, bring us another pitcher of margaritas.

Originally, a Bama was a southerner (from Alabama, for instance) trying to blend in up north, but was so obviously country that it didn't work.
Now it's more general and just means something funny-looking, unsophisticated or country as hell.
"Why is dude still wearing BUM Equipment? That's some Bama shit!"

A short term for Alabama. The way many Alabamians actually refer to their home state.

A great place to live, filled with people who are kind, hard working, and helpful. It's often insulted by movies and television shows that depict Alabamians as good-for-nothing white-trash, when in all reality, Bama's full of very intelligent and talented people.
I have lived in Bama my entire life.
