I just have to say Roll Tide! I am so excited that Bama is 12-0, #1 and that we beat Auburn. I say this very respectfully as I know all my Auburn friends would have been JUST as excited if they had won! My son Philip and my niece Jacki and several friends got to attend the game. I've been to close to a hundred games but never the Alabama - Auburn game. To see Bama win at Tuscaloosa must have been a phenomenal thing! Phil and I certainly had a great time screaming and yelling here at the house. For those of you who just don't understand my fascination with Alabama football, you can read about my family's addiction and long standing tradition as Tide fans here.
Philip sent me the picture above from his cell phone - his view from the student section at Bryant-Denny Stadium. As you may have read in a previous post, Philip has made a commitment not to cut his beard as long as Bama is winning. My mom was a bit uncertain about this but she called me tonight and said "Tell Philip I hope he grows it so long that he has to tuck it into his pants!". Phil and I thought that showed the strength of my mother's passion for Alabama football.
I will end by saying simply, "Roooollllllll Tide Roll!" Now we get ready for Florida!
