….football is alive and well in Alabama.
I completely understand.
I’m from the south where we take our football very seriously.
I was raised on first downs and field goals and touchdowns and two point conversions…..
…..and I once watched a Friday night football game wearing a mum the size of a small planet.
But nothing….and I mean nothing….prepared me for the devotion of the Alabama football fan.
They take serious to new heights.
At Chapel Market shoppers wore their colors proudly with colorful outfits designed to support their favorite team. There was the gray and crimson and hounds tooth of the University of Alabama and the blue and orange of Auburn.
I raise my Cranberry Fizz Mocktail to both.
Around here we don’t take sides. Consider this blog Switzerland…..
….until basketball season starts in Kentucky. 🙂
