Sack,

Sorry your War Eagles didn't upset the Tide but it was a nice and close contest. While i don't have a dog in this hunt, I was sorta hating to see Bama get knocked out of the championship just so Aubrn could win one.

I was less than 200 yards from the stadium, mu folks house, playing one pocket and eating entirely too much turkey and dressing while the game was on. I do think Auburn did themselves proud and gave a great effort. Bama was just too much late in the game.

Yeah, it was a wild day and a great game.

Me and my people tend to talk smack year round, just jabbing at each other with any opportunity.

I kept relatively quiet during the game, though... even with the big start and holding the lead for most of the game... I know how good Bama is and how bad our defense is. So the comeback was almost expected.

But our boys did well. And in a very rare occurrence following an iron bowl, there was an air of mutual respect flowing from both sides... everyone enjoying what was really a great game.

And in some strange way, I'm kind of glad we lost. I like the marquee matchup of an undefeated Florida and undefeated Bama playing for the SEC championship. Will make it all the more gratifying when Tebow and the Gators dash Bama's title hopes at the very end for a second straight year /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

I hate to root against my state... but I still have this season and next where a Bama national title would cost me a bunch of money. So I still have to show loyalty to my wallet over my geography /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif

I thought the biggest holiday in Ala. was celebrating the immortal
Gen. Jubilation T Cornpone's victorious conquest of the northern aggressor's.
I missed the game, but some of my best Collegiate football game memories had the Tide as one of the teams, but I normally was cheering for the other side....

"winging it" from my spotty memory....(although I could probably Google it)...wasn't it Darrel Royal from Texas, or TCU,...that invented either the "wishbone", or "split-T" (did I mention my poor memory?) and the "Bear", already a legendary coach, adopted it?
Or was it Notre Dame, under Ara, that stole it from one of the above?
Auburn has a football team?

Right letter, wrong State! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif Cornpone was an Arkansas native who not only kept Diasy Mae's virginity at bay but also had the good luck to appear in one of the all-time great gay bashing productions, "Lil Abner". I know this so well as I played Marryin' Sam in my high school production over 40 years ago and can still sing the songs. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif Of course, I ain't as cute in the costume as I once wuz.

I do remember when Alabama won the national championship in the mid 1960's with an offensive line that averages 165 pounds. They were into weighte long before most but the Bear (another Arkie) didn't know a thing about steroids back then. His hat, however, was on some drug or the other....

You had mentioned once before that you had played Marrying Sam....so I couldn't resist the opportunity to mention him agin
I had you pictured as more like Mayor Dogmeat /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif , then the Stubby Kaye role (some resemblance, maybe?)
Haven't checked this out....but supposedly the movie can be dl'd for free (and I likes free)...might bring back some old memories
L'il Abner (http://www.archiveclassicmovies.com/movie_lib.php) (scroll down the list)
I might just do that later on today....sounds more entertaining and
"educational" then this site??

I can assure you watching Lil Abner is better for your health than this of any web site where discussion ensues. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

Dailsey Mae does not look as good to me as she did back in the day. Of course, bare legged gals were a little more rare then. Who knew that that great elixer of manhood, Kickapoo Joy Juice would be available as Viagra today? /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

<span style="color: #FF0000">Yep! Darrell Royal, wishbone, 1968 or so, everyone stole it and it was good until they invented the roaming monster man to cover the option. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif </span>
