The streets are deserted. Stores are shuttered as though it were Christmas Day.
The Iron Bowl is today. Someone not from the South said it was one of the biggest rivalries in college football. "War Eagle! "
Some of you say "Roll Tide."
While I care nothing for football and think all the noise is annoying, some people love all the hullabaloo. Exbf graduated from Auburn, so I know where he stands. My son is a rabid Auburn fan, so that is where my loyalties lie.
I swore I was not leaving the yard today, but I had a hankering for a chocolate milkshake. So, off to Arby's I went for their Value chocolate shake for about $1.50. However, since it was between 2 and 5 pm, the small was $1. Yay chocolate!
All the locally owned stores are closed with signs in the doors "closed because of the game." No, that is all the explanation needed around here. "The game" describes the situation.
Even though I hate football, I will listen to anyone explain what is happening. I have attended Iron Bowl Parties for the company, good time, and food. But, I don't seek them.
I know some of you are from Alabama. For whom do you cheer? Thoughts on college football? If you are not from AL, what is your favorite team?
