Roll Tide Roll !!!

We had such a fun day yesterday! It was one of those perfect days where everything just fell into place. Chris woke up and said, "Let's drive down to T-town and see if we can get tickets to tonight's game." We got some friend chicken from Publix, filled up the cooler and headed to Tuscaloosa.

KJ & I had never been to a game at Bryant-Denny stadium. This was actually my 4th Alabama game but my first ever in T-Town. When we first moved here Alabama still played a couple of games at Legion Field and in 1999 Chris, T-bone & I saw them play LA-Monroe (KJ was "in utero"). Years and years ago (before we were even married) we saw Alabama play Penn State in the Kick-Off Classic at the Meadowlands and when we were living in Cincinnati (1997) I had arranged for a romantic weekend at the Griffen Gate resort in Lexington, KY. Unbeknownst to us, Kentucky was playing Alabama that weekend. Coincidentally, Chris packed his Alabama T-shirt and some guy thought we were students and gave us 2 tickets. Tim Couch was the QB for Kentucky and it was the first time in decades that Kentucky beat Alabama.

When we got to Tuscaloosa yesterday we got a primo parking spot and scored some sweet seats and headed toward the stadium. As we were crossing the street, we ran into friends of ours, Scott, Debbie and their daughter Merritt. They showed us around and we did the "Walk" and cheered on the players as they walked off the bus. Those boys were treated like total Rock Stars. We then tailgated w/ some friends of Scott & Debbie's. Just before we went into the stadium we bought KJ a Bear Bryant houndstooth hat. She looked so damn cute!
There is nothing like a hot, humid sweltering Saturday night at an SEC game. I've been to many football games around the country but there is definitely something about an Alabama game. At half-time they had the oldest living Crimson Tide letterman on the field and the crowd went nuts.
KJ had such a good time. She insisted we stay until the final buzzer. She said this was her first "real" football game other than high school and she wanted to stay until the very end.
