Roll Tide!

So I'm counting down the days to what for me will be a "Football Nirvana." One week until I get to see my Crimson Tide play for National Championship -- a game, let's be honest here, I'm both lucky and blessed to be at. I can't wait. Knowing that I have the opportunity to witness something that most people only dream of means something. Let's count the year down, shall we?

  • Undefeated regular season
  • SEC Championship (#22)
  • Heisman Trophy
  • Go to a BCS Bowl
  • Go to THE BCS National Championship
  • Get tickets to watch Alabama play for a title
  • Actually see them win the BCS National Championship
So as you can see, I'm almost there! Should we actually win this game next week (and I take nothing for granted) it should go without saying that no other year will ever top this one in my mind and life. It's got everything you could possibly want. If something's better than this, please tell me because I want to know about it!

But there's still many a day between now and then to traverse. In the meantime, I'll bide my time and wait until 11am on January 7th, when I'll climb into my car, flags flying, and make the 45 minute trip into Pasadena, ready to spend a few hours with my Crimson brethren.
