We are mere days away from that time for those of us who were raised in the south to don our school colors, grab our shakers, and live every Saturday through the end of November either in a stadium or in front of our TV.
TheHub and Son2 are usually at the games, and I watch them with DIL2 sometimes, and sometimes just by myself. Unless there is a road game, and then TheHub and I watch the game together, with either a ball game meal or game day snacks.
I also confess that every Saturday morning for the next few months, I will begin my Saturday mornings watching/listening to ESPN's Game Day with Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard, Rece Davis, David Pollack and the newest member of the Game Day Team, Jess Sims.
And because enough is never enough I will flip stations to see/hear SEC Nation with Laura Rutledge, Paul Finebaum, Roman Harper, Jordan Rodgers and Tim Tebow.
This is just how we roll every year at this time.
Bama Football Rules
1. Don't Call Me at any Time On Saturday
2. If for some insane reason you decide to text me during a game, it better be to ask me "Did you just see that play?"
Unless you are my granddaughter, I do not give a flip what you think, or think you need to know during a ball game.
3. If someone is injured, call 911 before you call me. They will answer, I probably won't.
4. If you are confused about my weekend availability until January refer to rule #1. Even if Bama is not in the playoffs, I will still be watching__unless it is a team I really dislike.
And I will now leave you with a big
ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
p.s. There are a few outliers here who do not hold these same rituals. These are not my people, and I do not even begin to understand them. They probably make it a point to go places like Publix and Walmart while the games are on. Weirdos!!!!!!!!!!!
