The Iron Bowl

We did it again! Alabama beat Auburn in the Iron Bowl!! This is a big deal to Bama fans because Auburn is our rival team. It's also a big deal because my neighbor is an Auburn fan and we like to rub it in each others faces when our team wins.

My neighbor started the tradition (here I go again with traditions) 5 years ago when Auburn beat Alabama and I woke up to find a stuffed Tiger on my car. You can read about the last years "prank" here.

This year I taunted my neighbor with yard signs I bought at Home Depot (I vow to be more creative next year when we win!). I wrote Roll Tide Roll on one side and the score on the other and stuck them in her yard Sunday night. Ideally, I would have loved to fill her whole yard with signs but at $4 a sign I whittled it down to 3...but I got my point across!!

Now, we wait anxiously for Saturday's game against Florida (she types while biting her nails)!

I would love to see your neighbors face when they wake up and glance out their front window! :)

That's hilarious! Hubby and I are Alabama fans. Our friend Joey just got a teaching job there & moves Dec 15th. He's a history prof. We are also big LSU/Southern Miss fans. Hubs went to LSU and Southern Miss. Living in Houston who do you support Aggie's or Longhorns?

Woo-hoo! I'm excited about Saturday, but my hopes aren't too high. At least three of us in this house will be shouting Roll Tide!! : )
