We finally got a shot of us outside the stadium.

Iron Bowl Friday
Well you've probably heard by now that my team lost. Boo! It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. Our day started pretty early around 7:00! The plan was to leave the house around 9:30 so we could be in line with the gates to the student section opened. That didn't exactly happen. It was so hard to leave the house since all of our tailgaters were just arriving, but we had to. I packed up my gallon of margaritas and my plate of chicken fingers and headed out the door. (Yes I took a gallon Ziploc bag full of margaritas into the game. We were going to be there 3 hours before kickoff. How you might wonder? I had Amy duct tape the bag to my undershirt on my back, under my coat you couldn't tell at all!) We thought the gates opened at 10:00...they didn't open until 10:30 so we stood with he mob of people patiently waiting to enter the stadium. We finally got in and Coach Saban came out to walk the field. The entire lower student section was almost full! Next the Auburn team came out to do their walk through. They were pumped they came out full of energy jumping around...then over the loud speaker in Bryant-Denny Stadium I heard Steve Miller Band's Take the Money and Run. I have never laughed so hard. All the students joined in a sang their hearts out. The next song was Son of a Preacher Man. You could tell the Aubs weren't expecting this at all. They quickly calmed down and weren't near enthusiastic as they were. (Let me add that I wasn't exactly proud that my University had stooped to this level but I did find it very funny! Come to find out the music selection was not approved and a kid lost his job because of it. Totally worth it in my opinion!)
