ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!!

Hello Everyone!!

Alabama Bloggers

Today is the “Score For Your Team Football Carnival” over at Alabama Bloggers. Well you know that I just had to join in. Everyone that knows me, reads my blog or hey even looks at my header knows that I am a BIG BIG BIG ALABAMA FAN!!!

Loving the Crimson Tide was passed on to me by my beloved grandfather and grandmother. You rarely seen my grandfather without a Alabama jacket or hat on. Some of my best memories are being at their house and watching Alabama Football!!

Growing up it was always loud at my house, with six kids you can understand why. But when Alabama was playing I am sure it sounded like the biggest brawls ever. Screaming, shouting, cheering and yes even cursing.  I have great memories of the time spent with my siblings watching the games and cheering on our team.

As I got older I went with my school to Legend Field to help with selling items such as peanuts, cokes and hot dogs. We would walk up and down the isles. It was a great way to be at an Alabama game. I seen Coach Bear Bryant up close many times from volunteering to do this. Great fun!!!

I would also visit T-town every weekend as I became a young adult. It was a town full of electricity when Bama was playing. I have so many great memories of friends, fun, food and the Crimson Tide. Let’s not forget the tailgating. You have got to experience tailgating at the University of Alabama!!

When I got married it had to be to an Alabama man. We unfortunately are not fit to be anywhere during a game. Nowadays we do our screaming cheering from our own living room. We are just too overly enthusiastic to be at anyone else's home or in public. lol Trust me, we like it like this!

No one escapes wearing a Alabama shirt on Fridays and Saturdays. Even Chico has his own shirt!

 Here is the best video that I have found that expresses the way I feel about the Crimson Tide!!!

This video gives me goose bumps!!!

I can not do a post about our great Alabama Crimson Tide without including the words to our fight song.

"Yea, Alabama!"

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!

Remember the Rose Bowl we'll win then!

Go, roll to victory,

Hit your stride,

You're Dixie's football pride, Crimson Tide!

If you are an Alabama Crimson Tide football fan hop over to Alabama Bloggers and join in on the carnival. If your not a fan I feel sorry for ya!!! lol Until next time

Have a blessed day!! Oh and

ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!!!
