The Iron Bowl is today.
For those of you from other parts of the country, who think you actually have an intense rivalry from football teams in your state....you are sadly mistaken. The Iron Bowl--the game between Alabama and Auburn--is THE most heated rivalry in college football.
And today's game has all sorts of intrigue to go along with it. We're#1 in the country, so there is a whole lot riding on a win. Auburn has beaten us six (yes, six; ugh!) years in a row and we desperately want to end that streak.
Gary and I will be at the game and we are already counting down the minutes until we can get in our seats and yell out our first "Roll Tide!"
To get you all ready for the game (PLEASE watch; it's on at 2:30 on CBS!), enjoy these jokes...
An Auburn cheerleader reported for her final examination which consisted of "yes/no" type questions. She takes her seat in the examination hall, stares at the question paper for five minutes, and then in a fit of inspiration takes her purse out, removes a coin and starts tossing the coin and marking the answer sheet - Yes for Heads and No for Tails. Within half an hour she is all done whereas the rest of the class is sweating it out. During the last few minutes, she is seen desperately throwing the coin, swearing and sweating. The moderator, alarmed, approaches her and asks what is going on. "I finished the exam in half and hour. But I'm rechecking my answers."
An Auburn man goes to Georgia and buys a ticket and wins the lottery. He goes to Columbus to claim it where the man verifies his ticket number. The Aubie says "I want my $20 million." To which the man replied, "No, sir. It doesn't work that way. We give you a million today, and then you'll get the rest spread out for the next 19 years." The Aubie said, "Oh, no. I want all my money RIGHT now! I won it, and I want it." Again the man patiently explains that he would only get a million that day and the rest during the next 19 years. The Aubie, furious with the man, screams out, "Look, I WANT MY MONEY!! If you're not going to give me my $20 million "right now," THEN I WANT MY DOLLAR BACK!!
How come Auburn University doesn't have a website?
It can't find a way to get three Ws in a row.
What do you call an Auburn fan with half a brain?
(If you've got any good jokes, I'd love to hear them!!)
I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday, and that your favorite football team wins!
