Show me the Love...
So you guys know that I am absolutely, like so-crazed-it's-almost-a-sickness, obsessed with college football...especially my beloved Crimson Tide, right?
Well, I guess you all realize that today is August 20, which means that the kickoff to my Alabama football season is now officially just TEN DAYS AWAY. We play Clemson next Saturday evening, Aug. 30, on ESPN, at 8:00 PM (so that all of you have no excuse to miss it!). Clemson is ranked as high as #8 in some polls, so it will be a very tough test for us to have right at the beginning of the season. But, I think we might end up having a pretty good season, and I am beyond excited to get it started!
With that in mind...
I have decided to start a blog totally related to my obsession with Alabama football. It's called TIDE CHICK, which I think is a perfect name for me. Don't you think?
Today is my "Grand Opening" and my first post starts out like this:
I guess you could say that I was born with college football in my blood.
Born to college student parents, I lived my first two years on a college campus (a small one in east Texas), where Dad said they'd walk from their married dorm to the stadium every Saturday afternoon and get into the games for free. He still gets a little misty eyed when he tells the tales of those idyllic days, long before College Game Day and blue-chip recruiting...when a day at a football game was pure enjoyment (and that's all).
Please, PLEASE, pretty please...Go read the rest of my post by visiting my Tide Chick blog . Please post a comment on it and show me some love (even if you don't care for sports! LOL). If you have sports buddies, pass the blog address along to them. Yep, I'm shamelessly promoting the blog, because I want to get a good readership going so that I can start doing things like podcasts and maybe a newspaper column and some other fun stuff.
So, yep, go HERE and wave to me!
(By the way, I will still be doing the same number of posts here. Nothing will change here; I just decided to do the Bama blog too. With my busy life, I've got plenty of time, right? LOL)
Back in a little while...
