Every other year the Iron Bowl is in Auburn and my family makes the trek up in the RV to Alabama for Thanksgiving. We celebrate with my whole fam up there, spend time on the lake at my aunt's house which is 30 minutes from Auburn, and tailgate in Auburn on game day. Gosh I love spending time with the family up there, being in the South, and reuniting with college friends.
Eric and I did a little turkey trot in 30 degree weather. We bundled up! It felt like we had the world to ourselves. I love running in the back country!
My dad was so generous to give the "kids" his tickets to the game this year. All 6 of us (including Eric and the exchange student) went to the game and my parents, aunts and uncles watched the game at the tailgate.
There really are no words to describe how I felt during the game this year. It was truly an experience of a lifetime to witness Iron Bowl 2013 first hand. We cannot stop watching the final play.
If you aren't a football fan, don't "get" this rivalry, or would just like a good laugh, take a look at these videos of devastated Bama fan reactions. I could watch them all day.. muahhahaa!
And here's a video of our reaction to the game :) :) Happy, happy! (excuse the explicits...just a little emotional)
My little bro and his friends rushed the field immediately and got pictures with some of the players. We danced around the stadium after the win and then joyfully pranced to Toomer's corner (first picture) to TP the trees. Gosh, I sure am thankful for my Auburn family! War Eagle!
