It’s Midnight and I’m Blogging

I have decided to post a random personal blog once a week, although I can’t guarantee I’ll remember or always have anything interesting to say…

For tonight, however, I do have a good story. This past Saturday, my dad and I went to see the Alabama Crimson Tide play.

I’m a huge college football fan, as are my parents. My dad has loved the Tide since forever, but he’s only been to one actual game, and an A-Day. This was my third game, thanks to the fact that my Jesse took me to watch them against Virginia Tech.

Anyway, we had a wonderful Saturday. We reached Tuscaloosa early and briefly tailgated with a couple of really nice strangers. The game was amazing. Our opponent was the Colorado State Rams. There’s clearly work to be done, but we won and I enjoyed doing the “Rammer Jammer” cheer.

Dad bought me a collector’s cup and a stuffed elephant, decorated with the Alabama “A,” which is too similar to the one for the Atlanta Braves if you ask me. I took some pictures, none worthy of this blog. Just Google “Bryant-Denny stadium.” It’s magnificent. The atmosphere is electric. And I totally fan-girled on the Walk of Champions. No shame!

As always, I hope this post finds you well. Be ready for better posts in October. Lol. (Although I’m sure there will be more talk of the Crimson Tide before the season is over.)

The Iron Bowl 2016

Friends of mine who are Auburn fans talked a lot of trash last week, mostly because the Tigers’ defense has straightened up lately. But you can’t really do much with an offense that can’t score touchdowns. Needless to say, the Alabama Crimson Tide won. They will be undefeated when they meet the Florida Gators next Saturday in Atlanta for the SEC Championship game. Roll Tide!

Here is something amusing for you to watch:

Roll Tide!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything about the Alabama Crimson Tide and a lot has happened in the interim.

After losing to Ole Miss for the second year in a row, the Tide has been perfect. They defeated their in-state rivals, the Auburn Tigers, to secure a trip to Atlanta, where they easily took down the Florida Gators and won their second consecutive SEC Championship game. 🙂

On New Years Eve, the Tide faces their next challenge: coming out on top against Michigan State in the Cotton Bowl so that they will have a shot at another national title.

Needless to say, I am stoked!!!!! I will be in front of a television at 7 p.m. (CST), ready for kickoff. It is sure to be a great game. Roll Tide!

In addition to all of this, runningback Derrick Henry became the second Alabama player to win the Heisman. I’m so proud of my boys!

 

 

Saturdays in the South

Bama

Guys, I am so excited because college football kicks off this weekend! (See what I did there? Ha!)

If you’ve been following me for any amount of time, then you know I’m a huge Alabama Crimson Tide fan. I apologize in advance for how many of my blogs are going to reference my team/football in general for the next five-ish months. I can’t help it; I’m addicted. It happens when you live in the South…and it seems the great state of Alabama, in particular.

Anyway, one of the bands I love from Birmingham has a song all about the Tide, entitled “Elephant Fight.” Check it out, as well as the other videos I’ve posted below. I’m just getting myself pumped up for the Alabama/Wisconsin game on Saturday. 🙂 Roll Tide!
