I'm Loving It--Third Saturday in October

Except that it's the 4th Saturday, but blame that on the addition of new teams to the SEC. This weekend, TOMORROW, my team plays our arch out of state rival, Tennessee. It doesn't matter that we've beaten them like 6 years in a row--it's anyone's game. Especially since TN decided to show up to the party and get good last weekend. It's kind of sad, really, because they have had a mess with coaches over the past decade and haven't been able to sustain any kind of momentum. I always feel bad for teams with problems due to coaching--it's not the players' fault, you know? Anyway I digress. In Alabama, this week is referred to #hateweek because someone once called the rivalry "Good Old Fashioned Hate". Why do we hate Tennessee? I can't exactly say where it all stemmed from, but this guy sums it up well...



I'm really sad that I won't be at the game tomorrow. I had to be the bigger person and let my sister use my parents' other tickets. Yes, that was hard but yes, I get to go to all of the games and she only had this one weekend available (I thought about being mad but then I remember I get to go to the LSU game for free, so I zipped my lip). I'll be cheering from home, never you fear! ROLL TIDE!!

  1. That video is classic. My fiancé and his family are huge Tennessee fans. We will be in Tuscaloosa tomorrow on opposing sides for sure. Roll Tide!

  3. I have to say I'll be cheering for my husband's alma mater tomorrow, but don't you fear....come November 9th when TN plays AU....well....let's just say the gloves will be off and I'll be joining your #hateweek full force ;-). Oh....and I think the hate stems from a little known coach, known as Philip Fulmer. :-)
