PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - The director of Maine’s Portland Symphony is giving props to the collegiate national football champion Crimson Tide during the Stars and Stripes Spectacular.

Music Director Robert Moody, a Clemson fan, plans to wear an Alabama jersey and conduct the Alabama fight song on the Fourth of July after losing a wager. The event is being held Monday evening on the Eastern Promenade in Portland, Maine.

Moody lost a bet with former Assistant Conductor Norman Huynh, a University of Alabama grad, over the outcome of the championship game.

Huynh played with the University of Alabama’s Million Dollar Band. He’s departing later this month to become associate conductor of the symphony in Portland, Oregon.
