This weekend, Auburn won the SEC championship in Atlanta.
Then, Michigan State proceeded to lose to Ohio State, giving Auburn a clear cut road to the national championship.
Auburn, who was 3-9 last year; they did not win a single conference game last year. They are now going to play for a national title.
So many things had to come together this season for this to happen. And while playing Alabama, they started saying Destiny over Dynasty.
I’ve mentioned before that I’m not really a strong believer in fate or destiny. I come from the school that you make your own fate; you decide how you want your life to go.
In everything you do, you have to make a choice. You make the right one for yourself at the time. It may be the right decision; it may not be. But you made it for a reason, so stick with it. You can own mistakes and use them for future decisions. Everyone on this planet has things they wish they could do over; but you can’t. Own it. You chose your own destiny.
Then there’s this little thing called luck. Since the Georgia game, everyone’s been saying Auburn is lucky. And sure, maybe luck had a little to do with it, but here’s a quote from someone I’m not that fond of, but love it because, well, I do.
“Luck is when preparation meets opportunity,” – Paul “Bear” Bryant
On to more fun things, I did get to go out and celebrate with a few Alabama fans on Saturday! I know, crazy, right?! Went to Cahaba Brewing Co, had some lovely beer, stranger hugged, and ended the night with Taco Bell. You know it’s a good night when you get Taco Bell at the end! Some photos from the weekend!
So here we go.. team of destiny?
I guess we’ll see! War Eagle! See you in California!!
