The Third Saturday in October.

For Alabama fans, the third Saturday in October is the second biggest rivalry game for us during football season. 
There is just something about the Tennessee game that brings out the ugly in some people. Must be all that orange. 
Typically, Tennessee fans and Alabama fans just don’t get along. It’s just one of those things. 
This rivalry game is always played on the third Saturday in October. ALWAYS. And the winner always smokes a victory cigar. ALWAYS. 
Friday wasn’t my day and I ended up forgetting my dress in Cullman and we had to go shopping for me a outfit. Turns out, it was in my favor because it was COLD people. 
Molly said I owned more houndstooth than anyone she knows.. it’s kind of like heaven. 
We decided we needed the break out the red coronas this week. They are always a hit! 
As always, the tailgate was a hit, with lots of people stopping by that don’t normally.. (Holla!! Lindy!) 
I was pretty cold during the game, when I looked around I noticed I was the only one totally bundled up like it was 20 degrees.. I can’t handle being cold. Then I realized, it’s because my friends that sit in the seat next to me weren’t there. 
Of course I took a picture of this extremely drunk girl. It was like she didn’t even check the weather before she left the house!! I may be in my winter coat, but honey, you at least need a cardigan! 
After a rough first half.. (seriously. Let’s not relive that.) We dominated the second half and that Rammer Jammer was a sweet one! 
For those of you not familiar, we have a song we sing after we beat teams– it’s called Rammer Jammer. I shall give you the words so you can be familiar and learn some of traditions (albeit, however “classless” they are.) 
Hey Vols!
Hey Vols! 
We just beat the hell out of you!
Rammer Jammer, Yellow Hammer,
Give ‘em HELL Alabama! 
We used to play it before the games, but I think it got banned from being played. 
Starting halfway through the 4th quarter, you could smell the celebratory cigar smoke. 
Word on the street at that point was that LSU starting their chant “WE WANT BAMA” during the Auburn game. Our student section started chanting “LS-WHO?” That game is going to be INSANE and yes, I am missing it to run Savannah. Don’t worry… I plan on finding a nice little bar with a tv to cheer my Tide on and you better believe I will have on a game day outfit!
That’s 5 in a row for our streak, yo!!
It’s not lit, peeps. 

Leave a comment to The Third Saturday in October.

  1. You, girl, are an Alabama fan. You win. I'm a fan, but I pale in comparison to you. Can't wait for two weeks from now. PS Did you see skinnyrunner's post today? She's having dinner at a place before the race, and she invited people going to email her to meetup! You should totally do it!!

  2. Your top is SO cute – I want to see the rest of it! I can't say that I'd want to wear orange. And I actually had two houndstooth articles of clothing before I knew you (now I own three). :)

    And girl needs to put some clothes on. I hate when girls run around half naked when it's chilly out.

  3. I know nothing about college football, but I ADORE your outfit!

  4. i'm a die-hard georgia fan, but all that houndstooth is just too fabulous to ignore! (plus, bama is totally my second favorite, especially years we don't play you!).

    LSU was definitely chanting, you could hear it on tv….that game is gonna be EPIC.

  5. Your tailgate outfits are always so cute! And Red Coronas? Yes please!

  6. Certainly believe that which you said. Your preferred cause appeared to be in the web the easiest thing to consider of. I say to you, We definitely obtain annoyed even while people think about issues that they just do not comprehend about. A person managed to strike the actual toe nail upon the very best and also described out the whole factor without necessity side-effect , people might take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thank you
