Being an Auburn graduate is hard in the state of Alabama — being an Auburn fan is even tougher. This state is full of Alabama fans who constantly torture us and make fun of us at every turn. Regardless of all of that, I wouldn’t give it up for the world. I loved every minute of my four years there — and of course, what we all lived for, the football!
I was fortunate that every year I was there, we beat Alabama in the Iron Bowl. EVERY SINGLE YEAR, so they didn’t have much talking to do the four years I was there. We had a Sugar Bowl win under our belts, and then four years after I graduated, we won the national championship. I don’t care anything for how many Alabama won, so please leave that to yourself.
A few traditions that you may not know Auburn has….
Rolling Toomer’s Corner after every win (you may have heard the story about the crazed Alabama fan poisoning our trees — we have planted new ones on the corner, so they will be back!)
The flying of the eagle — before every home game, we have an eagle that will circle the stadium and land at the 50 yard line, while we all shout War Eagle! It’s amazing, and you probably should see it before you die.
Tiger Walk – Our football players and coaches walk from their dorms down to the stadium – giving out high fives and pumping up the crowd.
The tailgating — Don’t even get me started! RV’s everywhere — food everywhere! Peeps playing football and drinking — LOVE.
And then of course getting into Jordan-Hare to cheer on our Tigers!!
I love talking anything and everything football, and even though the Tigers will not be such a hot team this year, I still love watching them play!! Linking up with Ms. Erin.
