This very well may be the happiest day of my life! I have tickets to the National Championship Game! I get to watch my Crimson Tide play in the Rose Bowl!


These tickets are on the 40 yard line and in row 39! They are great seats!! And I didn’t have to sell my soul or take out a small loan to get them either! I will not put how much they cost on here because my mother reads this and she might pass out when she sees it. But suffice it to say I paid less for the 2 of these tickets than I was finding for just 1 ticket anywhere else. And they are much better seats than I was able to find anywhere else too.

Well, I have to go stare at my tickets now!

Roll Tide!

Have a Room - Just Need Game Tickets!

Well, I tried to go online right after the SEC Championship Game to the Tournament of Roses ticket reserve website and it was completely locked up! All us Alabama fans knocked their server off line! About 2 hours after I first stared trying, I was finally able to get on and discovered that the tickets on there would be around $900.00 each and they would probably be in the last few rows in the endzone. I want to go to the National Championship Game really bad, but I don’t want to spend that much and have to squint the whole game. I will keep a watch on StubHub and some other places and Louis had already put word out to someone he works with that knows someone at ESPN that if we won the SECCG and went to the NCG to see if he could help out. So I am holding out hope that I might be able to go yet.

I did book a room in Pasadena this morning. I don’t have tickets yet, but by golly, I have a place to stay if (WHEN!) I do!! It is a good thing that I booked it too. There were very few rooms left anywhere.

Wish me luck on finding some tickets!

Roll Tide!

SEC Champs!!

It is the day after the SEC Championship Game and I am still grinning from ear to ear! What a game! What a team! What a year!

The plays from the game are still running through my mind! I can still see Greg McElroy going tippy-toe down the sideline to get that first down. And the fantastic block he threw to ensure that Trent Richardson got a few more yards out of his run. How many quarterbacks do you know that would do that?!? And P.J. Fitzgerald’s tackle of Brandon James to save him from running for a TD. Colin Peek’s TD reception was great and Mark Ingram just being Mark Ingram. And how about that chest bump between Ingram and Coach Saban! WOW! What a game!

I knew deep down in my heart that we were going to win it. I just had no idea that we would run away with it the way we did. I know it is sooo bad of me, but I wanted to see Tebow go down. It has been nauseating the last 2 years listening to the media gush about him like they have. And it was so satisfying to see those tears!

The Crimson Tide is off to the Rose Bowl to play for the National Championship! This is our year! We will do it! I just hope somehow I can find a way to go to the game. After all, it will only be about 3 ½ hours away from me….

Yea, Alabama! Drown 'em Tide!
Every 'Bama man's behind you,
Hit your stride.
Go teach the Bulldogs to behave,
Send the Yellow Jackets to a watery grave.
And if a man starts to weaken,
That's a shame!
For Bama's pluck and grit have
Writ her name in Crimson flame.
Fight on, fight on, fight on men!
So roll on to victory,
Hit your stride,
You're Dixie's football pride,
Crimson Tide, Roll Tide, Roll Tide!!

Roll Tide!!

We are only 2 days away from the SEC Championship Game and I can feel my stomach starting to knot up already. No matter the outcome of the game, our guys played one hell of season. Back to back undefeated regular seasons! How many teams can say that?! Not many.

I saw this video this morning and it made me teary eyed, proud and fired up all at once. Here's to a great game on Saturday! Roll Tide!! Beat them Gators!!
