Lee Corso picks Alabama

Lefty and I love ESPN Gameday for the most part. We typically don’t like their guest prognosticators, but last week they had Craig T. Nelson, which was pretty cool.

Almost all the ESPN Gameday guys picked Alabama to win…but Lee Corso is the one who counts the most!  Unfortunately, I forgot while running around town trying to find the type of Christmas ornament holders that I like.  Didn’t find them. Fortunately, Lefty recorded it for me!

 

I say “Roll,” You say “Tide!” Roll Tide, Roll Tide!

But folks are all ready for The Game in their orange and blue or crimson (not red and white, thank you very much) and white.

You go past any random stranger in a crimson shirt and greet them cordially, “Roll Tide.”

In return, they say back in complete agreement, “Roll Tide.”

Translation:

“Roll Tide” is to say: Alabama is going to beat Auburn, right?

The other person reciprocates, “Roll Tide!”  This means:  Absolutely!!!

Alabama vs. Auburn Rivalry

As always, the University of Alabama vs. Auburn University rivalry will be one of the most unforgettable game of the year.  Yes, the Crimson Tide is #1 in the NCAA.  But you just never can bet on the Iron Bowl–the name of the ageless rivalry.

Roll Tide?

Roll Tide!

Okay, marketing people at Walmart…The school colors are Crimson and White…Not black and red. :-p
