I was fortunate enough to make the trip to Pasadena to watch my beloved Tigers play. It was on my bucket list. I can mark that one off and add go to playoffs!
It was wonderful to see orange and blue everywhere and to hear and say War Eagle routinely. We surely outnumbered the FSU fans by a large number. I heard 70/30 and 60/40. The Auburn Family was everywhere. My Auburn Family.
On a trip to Santa Monica Pier, a lady who said she was a Native American, asked why she kept hearing “War Eagle”. She said that every time she heard it she would turn and look and that was a lot! Turns out her last name was War Eagle. What a great name. I wish she could have come to the game to hear her name again and again and again.
Upon returning home to Panama City Beach, FL, I have had FSU fans comment on how nice the Auburn fans were to them. We already knew that, huh.
Anyway, thank you players for providing us with such great entertainment and joy all season. Thank you coaches and staff for making this season one I will never forget. You are all champions.
