Dude, that makes me feel so...mature.
Even though I'm typing this in PJs and a shirt with dried spit up. At 10:30 a.m. On a Monday.
It's just like college, except I'm not the one who puked and stayed up all night long. Ahem.
Speaking of college, yes, my team is playing in the BCS National Championship again. I'm sure you're all super excited to watch the game. If you are a college football fan, chances are you think these are the two most annoying teams on earth. There's even a list of reasons to hate each team.
Like this: unfortunately, this really is AJ McCarron's tattoo (He's our starting QB. He also went to a really conservative Episcopal high school in Mobile, Alabama, so the whole thing totally throws me for a loop):
Additionally, I have personally seen the Bear Bryant tattoo guy walking around Tuscaloosa. He wears a kilt on game days and carries a giant Alabama flag through the Quad.
His name is Nate Davis, and Bear Bryant led him to God, and Alabama football is his religion.
Every team has crazy fans, but ours seem to come out of the woodwork more often than average. J thinks it's because we don't have any professional sports in the state and because "there's nothing to do in Alabama." We can't all live 30 minutes from Disney World.
As much as I'd like to point fingers, I'll be spending my birthday plopped on my couch, beer in one hand, baby in the other, watching the game and trying not to yell profanities. You can take the girl out of Alabama, but you can't take the Alabama out of the girl.
