The Game's On!!!
All the good guys won this past weekend!!! Delaney's travel team, the Birmingham Mustangs, won their tournament on Saturday!! Then--of course!!!--Alabama got a HUGE win Saturday against LSU. The game was loud and fun and exciting...and I will have some pics up sometime soon. And then last night, my Dallas Cowboys won again and took first place of their division. A good weekend for sports!)
I was born in Texas. So I love the Longhorns.
I lived my elementary and junior high school years in Fayetteville, Arkansas, so I still cheer on the Razorbacks (despite my girls being quite embarrassed when I show them that I can "call the hogs").
For some reason, Delaney cheers for Notre Dame (while we mostly make fun of her).
And I cheer for several other teams, because I have friends and family who love them. (My blog friend, Phats, has made me a Purdue fan. I cheer for Nebraska, since an old junior high friend is an avid Cornhusker. I even hope the Dawgs win, since my favorite cousin is a Georgia graduate.)
But you all know that Alabama is my One True Love.
I love the school, the campus, the colors, the traditions, the championships, the everything.
And tomorrow...well, tomorrow is our biggest game of the season so far!
Gary and I will be there in-person to enjoy the rivalry and craziness that is the Alabama-LSU game. Seriously, that game is always the most intense and loud and fun game of the season--mostly because of the LSU fans (it's the one game I would question taking my kids to, because the LSU fans can shout some pretty ugly things at you...just for standing there!).
If you're near a television at 2:30 tomorrow, turn it onto CBS and catch a great game full of fire and passion...and really good defenses! And if you don't have a team to cheer for, I give you permission to adopt my Crimson Tide.
To get you fired up (okay, really, it's to get me fired up again!), here's one of the videos that's shown pregame:
(And then also check out my gameday picks as the Guest Picker on Phats' awesome blog.)
I hope you all have a great weekend.
And I hope that your favorite team wins!
