give 'em hell alabama....



so this weekend was the georgia vs. alabama game in athens. and we went. we've been wanting to go to this game for over a year now, and i even planned my tahoe girls trip around it.  steve graduated from georgia, and i graduated from alabama.  we've always had a bit of a rivalry regarding these teams, but to be honest, i really haven't cared too much about who won the game. (i know, i'm a terrible fan). the truth is steve is such a die-hard fan that i've learned it's probably better for georgia to win because he actually cares. ALOT. that's the kind of wife i am.

but this year- well, this year is different.  alabama is actually really good for the first time in years, so my affection for this team has been rekindled.  go ahead and call me a fair-weathered fan- it's probably true. regardless, i care now. at least for this season. i think alabama actually has a shot at having a remarkable season if they can just keep it together. 

so we went to the game, 3 georgia diehards and i.  they made me wear black (how DARE them), but i was ok with it because i realized that it allowed me the ability to scream for alabama in the georgia section of the stands, and no one would know who to throw the drink at.  i can be tricky that way.  

anyway, we kicked their butts. and everyone in my section of the stands was miserable.  i, on the other hand, had an embarrassing grin on my face i couldn't shake for the rest of the night. to my credit, i kept my mouth shut. well, most of the time.  my people were so distraught they even made us leave the game early.  final score: 41 to 30. and that in no way shows the undeniable butt whooping alabama gave georgia.

here are a two pics of the girls on game day...

Randel, you can't be a lukewarm 'Bama fan. Saban will spit you out of his mouth.

Hats off to Bama (make it a houndstooth hats off to Bama) for pushing UGA around all night. Glad you enjoyed the game. Sorry Steve didn't -- well not really. It half-way eased the wounds of the Gators' fumbling loss to Ole Misserable.
