Football Link Up!
Lindsey at Running Down a Dream is doing a football link up today. Who is your favorite college or Pro football team? How did you become a fan?
Well, I think we all know that I am a HUGE Alabama football fan. I have always been an Alabama football fan. Do I know everything about the game? Absolutely not. But I know more than the average girl. SEC Football is a whole different ballgame. It’s a way of life here in the South. Don’t try to get married or plan any events during football season, most people won’t even show up.
The first game I went to as a student at the University of Alabama was Southern Miss. It was at Legion Field in Birmingham and I can remember riding the bus with the guy I went with and we missed kick off.
Philly is a crazy fan. I have accused him (which he does NOT like, btw) of loving his Crimson Tide more than me. Most of his closet is crimson with some gray thrown in. He never balks at buying something that can be worn during football season. I also think that his mood and attitude revolves around whether or not Alabama is having a good football season or not.
In 2009, at the beginning of the football season, John proclaimed that if Alabama went to the National Title Game, he was shaving his head.
|Hello Blonde Hairs.|
I have been to 2 SEC Championship games, 1 BCS National Title game, and more home games than I can count. I was there when Prothro made the greatest catch ever.
I have seen some of the greatest games and some of the worst. I have been to Neyland Stadium in Knoxville. Jordan-Hare in Auburn. The Rose Bowl in Pasadena. At the end of this football season, I will add The Swamp to that list (Florida) Beaver Stadium( Penn State) to that list. My goal is to see a game in every SEC stadium.
We love tailgating, and come Football season, you will see tailgating fashion posts.
I have no idea where all my pictures of our tailgating set up went, but be on the look out because it’s nothing short of amazing. I just wish that some of my best friends and I cheered for the same team. Because let’s face it, Jana and Rebecca- we would be O.O.C (out of control).
Now.. let’s help Lindsey pick a college football team, because she totally needs to be a Tide fan. We will welcome you with open arms, Linds!
