Nick Saban shares quirky story about bathing in the lake every day

Nick Saban loves the water, his boat and to do activities that involve them both.

Most recently, the Alabama football coach had a viral moment on Lake Tuscaloosa when he took some of his players out on his boat and ran out of gas.

Then Thursday at his Nick's Kids Foundation charity golf tournament, he spoke to reporters and had a particularly quirky answer when asked about what he likes to do for fun in the summer. Of course, he likes to swim in the lake, but he also enjoys regularly bathing in it - although his wife, Terry, apparently doesn't care for it.

Here's part of his exchange with reporters at the event.

Saban: I like playing golf. I love the lake. I swim in the lake, take a bath in the lake every day, and everybody kills me over that. People don't take baths in the lake. I gotta have Ivory soap so it floats, you know? Miss Terry doesn't, but I like that.

Question: You're not worried about snakes or anything?

Saban: Are you kidding me? I grew up in West Virginia. If you worry about snakes, you can't do anything.

Question: What about snapping turtles?

Saban: I don't worry about them either.

In honor of his delightfully charming and odd story about his summer activities, here's Saban chatting with Tim Tebow and ESPN's Marty Smith and then jumping off his boat garage on Lake Burton in Georgia.
