The Iron Bowl

                                 Let me tell you about SEC college football...

             There's nothing like it. I swear! Okay, I won't swear... but I promise. How's that?

The IRON BOWL is Saturday. What's an Iron Bowl you are asking... it's not a Bowl game at all. It's the rival Alabama/Auburn game. And, those two teams... oh my. Let me tell you, there's fierce loyalty amongst the fans on both sides. To some it's fighting rights.

I happen to know. You see, my family is split right down the middle. My son couldn't be a bigger Bama fan and my husband and I were/are fans as well, not as big as Mike but we always want Bama to win.

On the other hand there are my two daughters... dyed in the wool Auburn fans. Not sure where that came from. None of our family went there.

My son went to U of A in Tuscaloosa. My husband graduated from U of A in Birmingham. So, we got a reason to cheer for Bama, right? Roll Tide Roll.

I will be watching the game alone. Maybe that's best. hehe. Hubby is gone now but I can still hear him yell "Yabba Dabba Do" every time Alabama would score. I'll be doing my own cheering. Nobody to hear me but then again nobody's against me, either. Hmmmm....

  2. That's a great photo of you. My family is scattered and I'm too old to want to travel all over so I stay at home with my little dog. We shared our Thanksgiving dinner with two tenants, plus we took food out to our group of wild turkeys who came by for their Thanksgiving feast. You have a super day, hugs, Edna B.

  4. Love the hat! We love these rivalry games, ours is Georgia/Georgia Tech today also. My husband went to GT and most every other member of our family pulls for Georgia. I will be watching and with GT not having a very good year, hope it isn't a blow-out. Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

  5. Didn't have a dog in the fight but that was one of the most fun games I have seen in a long time. Sorry for you that darn goal post moved at the last moment.

  7. One of my favorite songs by Steely Dan mentions the Crimson Tide. The song is titled Deacons Blues and it’s worth a listen or two if you have never heard it. But then being the loyal Alabama fan you are, Latane, you may already know the tune auite well.
