Just curious...
It's all the rage here in Bammer.

And though I went to Auburn and graduated from South Alabama and married a Tennessee Vol - I am all SEC (well mostly) therefore

@mismi,
I'm an Irish fan from way back. I'd like to be watching, but ESPN has blacked out the game on ESPN3, and I'm at my mom's whose cable package doesn't include ESPN. Wished I'd gone to a bar near my own place...

@mismi,
I love that ESL post.

I have pretty much no idea what you've posted after "it's all the rage here in ..."




(I don't know what sport you're talking about - and I'm assuming you're talking about a sport)

@Kolyo,
It doesn't start for another hour. You have plenty of time. Smile
I am luke warm at best about it. But - it would thrill me Da to have Alabama win again - so of course I am pulling for the Crimson Tide.

Get thee to a bar!

I'll be watching. Typically I root for the underdog, and ND is a fine story, but I seem to recall ND fans kinda being douchers... go bama

@Ragman,
Nice prediction Ragman...I am pretty sure Alabama is going to win. I suck at calling the spreads though.

I just hope it is interesting. I don't wanna see a dull game.

Very Happy
Football (Amercan Wink )

I am getting to watch the championship game between the two colleges (the list I gave of where I have been is Auburn University and University of South Alabama - hubs is a University of Tennessee fan).
University of Alabama is the Crimson Tide (their call is Roll Tide Roll) and then they are playing Notre Dame.

Trust me - Alabama fans can be the same. You should hear a radio program down here called The Paul Finebaum show. You would be highly entertained - for a little while anyway. They pretty much all call in and say the same thing. But sometimes - it is hysterical.

@ehBeth,
HA (that made me chuckle!)

Yes...I speak "college football". Mostly anyway.

Bammer - (that would be my derogatory slang for Alabama Fans) Wink
Though - yes - I am pulling for Alabama tonight. I am nothing if not a SEC fan. (that stands for the South Eastern Conference, Beth Smile )

There are 11 conferences I think. All have however many colleges that are part of that conferences. You win your conference and then if you win the most you become the conference champion. We have gone and boogered it all up by introducing the BCS (that is a whole other story - I am not willing to get into right now) But the top two in the BCS poll get to play at the National Championship. So - Notre Dame (the are in the Big East Conference) is playing Alabama.

And that is my simplified Missy version of tonight's activity for myself and myt family.

That encourages me - I have heard folks saying they thought it was not going to be that close. I would love it to be. Praying it will be.

@Kolyo,
As I said on the superbowl thread, I'm an irish fan from waaaaaay back.
I'm over that now, but I will credit that craziness when I was mid teens to a life long enjoyment, more or less, of football. I skipped some years of attention off and on.

Go, Bama! (I haven't followed college football lately except to see how badly UCLA is doing and how well Stanford is doing. Pfffft toUSC.

@mismi,
Not lately, with UCLA. I don't pay that much attention, close to none, but this and that is always going wrong when I check the news links (LATimes only gives me 15 looks a month free and I've other interests I want to read up on). I did go there, but wasn't involved in campus stuff, had a job or two to go to. I did get interested despite other life going on when Wooden and the basketball team grabbed my eye, but that's another sport. Those were very great years, but I never got to a basketball game. Still, happy days back then.

@ossobuco,
So, I'm looking up famous players from Alabama (wasn't Bo from there? or maybe I forget), and bet I recognize a batch of names.

@ossobuco,
NO GIRL! Bo was an Auburn man. Wink

Missy knows Bo Jackson - not KNOWS him - but I do know where he went to school anyway. Wink

Jay Barker. I suppose he is not so famous though...he is married to Sara Evans. He coached the twins in both baseball and football. (shameless name dropping there)

Hey there Mystery Man! Roll Tide. My boys are pulling for Notre Dame. They hate Bama in spite of their coach being a huge Bammer fan.
