Iron Bowl 2009

After braving the crazy crowds for a morning of Black Friday shopping, my family all got decked out in our Bama attire to cheer the Tide on to victory. With an undefeated season and a possible National Championship in the balance, I was really nervous about this game. You never know what's gonna happen when Alabama and Auburn meet for the biggest game and most intense rivalry of the season.

Before the game, we took advantage of the beautiful weather to take a few family pics...
Mamaw and I started out the game with shakers in hand, ready for a game like last year (36-0 Bama!). Unfortunately, Auburn came out with a crazy bag of tricks, and the score was quickly 14-0 Auburn in the first quarter. Our shakers ended up thrown aside in disgust.

Thankfully, the second quarter was much better, and we entered halftime tied at 14-14. After a halftime game of marbles, we returned to cheer the Tide on to a much-needed and hard-fought win - 26-21. ROLL TIDE!!!!!!
We were all exhausted after that game! What fun to be part of a family that enjoys all the traditions of Alabama football. We'll be cheering for the Tide again on Saturday as they play Florida in the SEC Championship game for the second year in a row. Here's hoping for a totally different outcome than last year, and an opportunity to play for the National Championship. ROLL TIDE!!!! Rammer Jammer, Yellow Hammer, give 'em hell, ALABAMA!!! :)
