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!

Back to Bama

On the way to Butler, Alabama a couple of weeks ago, I took a detour in Tuscaloosa to visit campus at the University of Alabama. You may have heard of Bama, Crimson Tide, National Champions, and all that, but did you know that it is actually an institute of higher learning, founded in 1831? According… Continue Reading

Bama Versus Tennessee Volunteers

Tomorrow, the Alabama Crimson Tide clashes with the Tennessee Volunteers. The battles between these two teams are epic. I’m posting some pictures of our 1990 band road trip to Knoxville. We weren’t supposed to win that year, but Bama somehow pulled it out. We were ecstatic. I always liked going to Tennessee because it is… Continue Reading

Pumpkin-Carving Fun

Saturday night, the Alabama Crimson Tide football team was demolishing the University of Kentucky on the telly, so I got bored and set about carving a pumpkin for Princess Buttercup. She had also been begging me all day to get the job done. Earlier that morning, Lefty and I had decided to clean our garage… Continue Reading

Alabama Football Insanity

Everything that you’ve ever heard about fanaticism over college football in the state of Alabama is true. It can get kind of crazy. Mom and Dad both graduated from the University of Alabama, and Ben and I used to be able hear them screaming for the Tide during the games…and we’d be clear across the… Continue Reading
