So on my trusty new iphone I found the utube video of my fellow SEC SG (sorority girl).
And it made me remember all the games that I have shed a few tears over - why does Alabama always seem to be a consistent theme. I guess they are a benchmark of sorts, if you win - you just beat fricken Alabama. If you loose well you just lost to fricken Alabama.
Speaking of Alabama, it was the first Gator game that I shed a tear (or two over). It was my sophomore year at UF, we had beaten Tennessee earlier in the season, and we just didn't loose in the Swamp. That damn tide came in and we lost...and I cried...at a football game.
I somehow made it through the season in 2000 without any football related tears. So I was totally unprepared for what happened to us in '01 in Auburn, Alabama. I had made the road trip with my two best friends, and we were planning to stay at my cousins house in Auburn. Let's just say - driving to Alabama sans sleep is something not even a Burger King Breakfast can fix. Then add lots of Jack Daniels to the situation and Auburn fans running over you to storm the field as you sit crying in the end zone-it's not a good thing. It only got worse. Fights with Red Neck RV Drivers, sleeping in our car on the side of a back road in Alabama and a few speeding tickets followed. Would I trade it for anything-NEVER!
I've adopted a new philosophy around my beloved Gators, and that it's we always win the tailgate. That we did at the FL GA game this weekend.
Tailgating with my girls!
My brother drove down from South Dakota, and he was loved on by everyone there! I think it may have been because he makes some of the best BBQ on the face of the planet.
A little bit of our crazy tailgate. I was in charge of the Bloody Mary bar-the only organized part of the table at the other end.
And at some point of the day I promised Riley Cooper I would make a custom Cooper/Grossman jersey and wear it to the Eagles v Redskins game on the 15th. I better get busy.
