The Four Seasons: Spring, Summer, FOOTBALL, and Winter



It's the best season of the year--Football season! I'm from Alabama, and in Alabama, football is more than a game, it's a religion! Not only on the college level, but the high school level as well. In my hometown, everyone bleeds green...for the Gordo Greenwave. And on Friday night, it's not a question of what you're doing. Everyone goes to the game.
When it comes to college football, it's pretty much a split. Alabamians either chant "Roll Tide" or "War Eagle".
Tonight, I'm sitting here watching the Crimson Tide dominate Penn State. Just a few years ago, it would have been a much different outcome. The Tide has had some rough years, but I'm not a fair weather fan. I've stuck with my team. And during the Nick Saban era, Alabama has returned to greatness! We celebrated a National Championship last year.

So, Crimson is definitely my color! And if you happen by my apartment during a game, you will probably here a few "Roll Tide's" and a few "Rammer Jammer's"! Probably not what all the Tennesseans around me want to hear! I've shouted a few tonight!

Seems fitting on what would have been the Bear's 97th birthday. Happy Birthday, Bear Bryant.

"If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride - and never quit - you'll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards."--Bear Bryant

I know the feeling Nicole. Even though I am located here with Duke, Carolina & NC State I have never been much of a football fanatic until my middle daughter married an alumni from USC, the Gamecocks. So yesterday I watched it on ESPN and texted her while they were in Columbia getting excited. They beat the Ga. Bulldogs like they did the last game so they are 2 & O so far. I got tickled when Spurier got mad and knocked his headset off and started marching onto the field with his headset dragging behind him. He gets emotional for sure. Hope you have a wonderful sunday.
