Sunday afternoon

Today was a big day for us Bama fans around the Gardendale area.  The coveted crystal ball "Coaches Trophy" was on display for all to see from 10:00-2:00.  Well all that could cram themselves in line before they cut it off.  An estimated 7,000 fans to be almost exact.  My sweet sister that has been in Cali since last Tuesday landed in Atlanta around 9:00 this morning then drove into Gardendale went straight to Wal-Mart to get in line while I was at church.  She said they cut the line off not long after she got there.  Babo and I squeezed in line with her and Amy to get our chance to touch see the beautiful hardware that will soon be placed into the case at Mal Moore Athletic Complex with the other 12. We waited in line for about 2 1/2 hours.  It was so much fun though. They told us all about their trip!  They got their tickets to hold in the picture.  They were so proud and all the folks around us were pretty impressed that they'd not only been at the game but had not even been home yet!  Next Saturday there will be a parade in T-Town for the team, I'm pretty excited about going!

Me and the girls with the tickets.

Without tickets (because I was jealous I didn't have one!)

We made Babo come with us!

This was the backdrop for the photo.  The trophy is being blocked by the guy in the black coat!

They were practicing their pose because you only got one shot and it was very quick!

The Trophy!
Tomorrow I am supposed to be able to look our photo up in the online gallery so as soon as I see it I'll share it with yall! 

 Did any other faithful fans fight the crowd to get their chance with the hardware?
