Auburnitis… There Is No Known Cure

By Posted on: August 29th, 2012 in Uncategorized 16 Comments »

Even though none of us are new to TET, given the new
platform, I felt it would be appropriate to hear from everyone how you first
contracted the incurable disease called “Auburnitis”  While the disease has no cure the symptoms
are unmistakable.

In the early stages you feel the irresistible urge to buy
things Orange and Blue and develop a distaste for anything Crimson and
White. 

Later symptoms include the following:

You teach your children or pet in my case to say War Eagle.

You get goosebumps whenever you hear the fight song.

You get misty eyed while talking about AU tradition.

Advance case symptoms include drastic changes in mood swings
based on the outcome of games sometimes resulting in anger management issues
regarding West Alabama.

It is no secret how I contracted the disease (it was
transmitted at birth) so I will share the time my wonderful wife was first
infected.  By the way, she grew up a
Bammer.

On a beautiful fall day early in our marriage I took her to
her first AU football game in Jordon Hare. Upon seeing Toomers Corner and the
throngs of people she became slightly flushed. I could tell her fever had risen
above 98.6. When we got within shouting distance of Jordon Hare her walking
pace quickened and upon hearing the band warming up she made me quicken my pace
to get around the stadium to watch.  Temp
now at least 100. While there we heard sirens in the distance and she wanted to
know what was up. I told her it was probably the referees being escorted to the
stadium but she wanted to see.  When we
arrived at the gate where the police motorcade stopped, we watched a white van
back into the stadium portal and unload our beloved Eagle. Temp now at least
102. After entering the stadium she sat rather quietly and wide eyed at the
spectacle for some time. When the Eagle was released and landed on the 50 yard
line the infection was complete. Temp now 104. For the next few hours I was
pummeled by her every time anything good happened.

She now is a bigger fan than I and I am very happy about the
infection.

So, how did you fist get infected.  Please share the story.
