CNN: Lowder no fan of Biscuits

A CNN profile of the infamous Bobby Lowder and Colonial Bank's downfall includes that he apparently doesn't include the Biscuits among his city entertainment options.

In 2004, Montgomery got a new minor-league baseball team called the Biscuits. A Colonial marketing executive bought a few season tickets to use with clients. A few days later, while on a business trip, he got a call from his boss. She asked whether he'd bought Biscuits tickets, and when he said yes, she told him to return to Montgomery. "Will I have a job when I get there?" he asked. "No," was the response. Mr. Lowder, he was told later, didn't like the Biscuits.
