IRON BOWL: Alabama vs. Auburn
For any of you readers who don't know what the Iron Bowl is ... it is the annual football game between in-state rivals Alabama and Auburn. Anyone who knows anything about college football will tell you it is one of the fiercest rivalries in history. Auburn has won the last six years, so Alabama was hungry for a victory. Despite the fact that Alabama was undefeated and Auburn was having one of the worst seasons in the last decade, anything can happen in the Iron Bowl. Alabama came away with a BIG 36-0 win. What a great way to end an undefeated regular season! Of course, we were sad to make our last trip of the year to Tuscaloosa, and more sad to be out in a yucky drizzle most of the day, but the seeing the Tide stomp all over Auburn was well worth it!
This is our regular tailgate site ... what yucky conditions. Will and our friend Nikki's uncle try to help David get a satellite signal so we can watch some pre-game football.
Will and our friend Scotty after the game. Thanks to Scotty, we have season tickets every year. He let's us buy 2 of his 6 tickets.
SEC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME: Alabama vs. Florida
We ran into Dan Patrick of ESPN fame at the SEC fanfare area. All of Will's sports-radio-listening days finally paid off and we got to meet a sports celebrity. He was very nice and signed the special edition Sports Illustrated magazines that we had (all 3 of them) and posed for a photo.
Will and me before the game. No scoreboard pic of this game! Unfortunately, Bama was unable to pick up a win against a very tough Florida Gators team. The team played a great game and hung in there until the very end and we were very proud.
We ran into Will's best friend from high school/college at the game. After goofing around for a little while, they finally posed for a serious photo. Cory was one of my closest guy friends in high school and he was Will's roomie all 4 years at UofA and for one year of grad school at Auburn.
