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.)
