This weekend was incredibly bitter sweet. This weekend the Auburn faithful said good-bye to our trees on Toomer’s Corner. We celebrated by first watching our boys come out for the Spring Game; then walked up to the trees to roll them for the very last time.
I know it sounds weird to essentially just TP a bunch of trees, but you guys, there is nothing more fun in the entire world.
Ever since they were poisoned, the arborists at Auburn were unsure of their survival. I’m not sure if arborists is a word, so we’re just going to go with it here. At the beginning of last month, they announced that the trees were going to have to come down; that the poison that Harvey Updyke had been too much for them to handle.
So tomorrow, the 100+ year old Toomer’s Oaks are going to be cut down. But this weekend we celebrated…Auburn had the highest turn out for their A-Day game ever, 83,401 people were there. And there were possible more around those oaks.
There were tears, not going to lie, but for the most part it was a happy celebration; a celebration of the Auburn family, and the spirit of All In.
War Damn Eagle.
We unfortunately didn’t get to stay well into the night when the trees got super rolled (we do have a little fur baby at home we had to hurry back for), but Google and see for yourself.
It’s great to be an Auburn Tiger!
