WE ARE NOT A HOUSE DIVIDED
Auburn University or University of Alabama? We are NOT a house divided!
If you ever visit or travel through the state of Alabama, you will most definitely see fans of Auburn University and University of Alabama.
How can you tell they’re fans? You will see tags on vehicles with War Eagle, Auburn Tigers, Bama, Roll Tide, Alabama Crimson Tide and so on. You will also see flags in yards and on houses, hats on men and boys, and tee shirts on everyone!
The cities of Auburn and Tuscaloosa will be running over with football fans on game day. Both universities have die-hard fans! This is unequivocally evident every November during the Iron Bowl game when the two football teams play against each other. This rivalry game has been going on since 1893.
One thing you will see (at times) is merchandise with both Auburn and Alabama logos on it and the words – “House Divided!” The most visible will be yard signs and flags as well as front door hangings and car tags. These are mostly for the unfortunate souls who fell in love with and sometimes married (yes, married) a non-Auburn or non-Alabama fan!
We live in Tuscaloosa and we don’t have a “House Divided” sign or flag. If we had one it would say – “We are NOT a House Divided!”
Hubby likes sports, any sports! If it has a ball that you bounce, kick, putt, throw, etc…then he likes to watch it on TV and go to games, especially football games, and to be more exact – Auburn football!
Yes, he’s an Auburn Tigers fan and can often be heard in Tuscaloosa saying “War Eagle” to other Auburn fans or even out of state while traveling coming across more Auburn fans. Contrary to the belief, there are Auburn fans in Tuscaloosa!
Back to the sign I need that says – “We are NOT a House Divided!” See, we can’t be as I don’t care for sports and don’t watch it on TV. To me it is the most boring thing ever! The only time I’ve ever been eager to go is when my children and grandbabies were playing!
I will admit that I have went along with hubby to some Auburn football games and seen all the fans tailgating and being all excited before, during, and after the game. Thank goodness I had cell phone reception while in the stadium!
And speaking of the Iron Bowl (up above) – guess what’s going on right now in Tuscaloosa as I prepare to publish this post? THE IRON BOWL!!!
Not my cup of tea, you know? How about you, do you like to watch sports and go to games or are you like me?
