Enough has been said about this season, coaches, and what changes need to be made. I think we all know what is coming and we all want the best for Auburn. Changes will be made and they will be for the better, sooner or later.
Now, I want to talk about something good, goose bump inducing, and mystical. Saturday night was designated as Armed Forces Appreciation Night at JH. We had jets fly over and parachutists land.
Before all that took place, our Eagle Spirit was to have his moment. I was not there but listened to the account on the radio. Spirit took the flight of his lifetime and the best flight in AU history. He soared around the stadium so long all the faithful had to work hard to keep yelling Warrrrrrrr until the landing. Spirit even left the building, going outside the stadium, around the scoreboard before flying back into the stadium to land on the 35 yard line to the chorus of “Eagle” when he finally touched earth. Rod Bramblett was screaming about how incredible the flight was. BTW, there is not better person to make you feel like you are there as Rod.
Folks, I believe in my Auburn heart, Spirit knew that he was about to compete with fighter jets and parachute jumpers and was not to be outdone. I have watched many eagle flights in my days and get goosebumps and teary eyed almost every time.
Required Bammer insult, “I keep waiting for them to push and Elephant out of the upper deck”
When the opening of the Atlanta Olympics featured an eagle flight it was our bird that showed the spirit of the USA. Saturday night he showed the spirit of Auburn.
Folks, I believe in Auburn just like Spirit does. We will be back. Gloat at your on peril. We will show you that you have to do something special to upstage us.
This is a terrible time for Auburn but take the attitude of Spirit. I will show you what we are all about, JUST WATCH THIS!!
Way to go Spirit!
