War Eagle, everybody!
Well, I was at work again during the Iron Bowl, but thank God we have a cable TV, and I made a complete fool out of myself. I work with the mentally handicapped,and had to spend 15 minutes convincing them that I was ok, and that I was not having a “behavior.” Anyway, my brother calls me up from camping with his family and our parents at Stone Mountain after seeing my delerious facebook posts to congratulate me on the win.
One of my posts said “So, anyone have tickets to the Championship game?” He says, “well, you couldn’t get off for something like that, could you?” I say “for something like that? Hell yes!” We exchange a few more pleasantries, hang up, and I think no more about it.
A few minutes later, I’m doing end of the month paperwork and my phone rings again. It’s my brother again. This time he has me on speaker. He says “check your email.” I open an email labled “Merry Christmas.” And there it is: a confirmation for two tickets to the SEC Championship game. Section 114, Row 22, seats 17 & 18 on the lower level, 35-40 yardline, on the Auburn side. I’m speechless for a minute, then babble thank you’s to the group for a few minutes, then hang up and scream. I then have to calm down the residents again.
So my question is this: who’s goin’? I’d love to meet some of you knuckleheads. Get a pic, whatever. I’m driving over in the morning, parking on the perimeter, and taking MARTA in. Just let me know.
Also, I posted a little friendly greeting on Mizzou’s SB Nation page. Apparently my login carried over to College & Magnolia after we left.
WAR DAMN EAGLE!!
SEE YOU IN ATLANTA!!
