How to Properly Celebrate a Win Like Tonight

By on October 19th, 2013 in Football 23 Comments »

First of all let me say…WAR EAGLE

As some of you know I have one of the Toomers Corner seedlings in my front yard, now 15 feet tall. Tonight I want to tell you how you properly celebrate a win like this one.

The first thing you do is teach your dog, like mine, to growl/bark/say WAR EAGLE, after every score. She gets a treat and is pretty full right now.

The next thing you do is go into your front yard and scream WAR EAGLE multiple times at the top of your lungs.

Then you proceed to throw $10+ worth of toilet paper into the tree in your yard.

Call all your Auburn buddies and giggle on the phone like a school girl.

Next, you explain to the uniformed neighbors who are walking down the sidewalk wondering what teenagers are toilet papering these poor folks tree.

Lastly, after assuring all the neighbors that you are not really crazy, you crack open the bottle of Gentleman Jack and raise a toast to the Auburn Tigers.

Folks, I don’t care what anyone says….we are back and are to be considered armed and dangerous.

How did you celebrate?

    I jumped up and down yelling auburn wins! Opened up a bottle of Welches Sparkling Red Grape Juice! Then answered all my friends congratulating me for calling the win! Then I ate a turkey sandwich from one I smoked for the game and a bowl of chili as I looked out on the lake and enjoyed the blue and orange sunset!
    War Eagle!
    Now we run the table, one game at a time!

  2. mvhcpa says:

    I did the phone calls and the giggles–the mrs would not approve of the rolling.

    All I got to say is, if we keep focused each game at a time, then I am going to quote good ol’ Cam:



    Michael Val
    (who thought the end-of-the-half touchdown by aTm would be their margin of victory in the game–but was WRONG WRONG WRONG!!!)

    P.S. No belt on tonight–so I guess my previous column was bogus! MVH

      Mrs.Myauburn who grew up a Bammer has been fully converted. She was out yelling and throwing TP just like I was. She did a much better job of explaining to the neighbors why we were acting like crazy people and they did not have to lock their doors.

  3. MyAuburn MyAuburn says:

    I have to say this.

    Capn, I know you said you wanted your crow medium well, but do you want if fried, broiled. or smoked?

  4. War_Eagle_2010 War_Eagle_2010 says:

    You have to jump up and down, shout, give high fives to all around, and generally scare your in-laws into thinking a maniac married their daughter. War Eagle!!!!!!!

    And go Ole Miss, beat the Hat!

  5. War_Eagle_2010 War_Eagle_2010 says:

    And AU controls its own destiny!!! Thanks coach Freeze!

    Baton Rouge is a ghost town tonight. I really would rather be in Auburn but…


    WAR EAGLE !!!

    GO BIG BLUE !!!

  7. tigertracker says:

    So very glad we have fau next week to get over this hangover. Maybe arky will provide just enough challenge to keep complacency at bay. Rocky top will be rocky, but a win there and ish just got real! Will Uga have any players healthy for that game? Then IB for the right to ride MARTA! Drinking the koolaid and pumping the sunshine. For now a 14-16 ranking looks very probable tomorrow. War eagle!

  8. Ricky Bobby says:

    Did several of these from this list tonight.

    CapnVegetto….I’m so glad, you are so wrong, so often.

    War Damn!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. mvhcpa says:

    Hey, no piling on the Vegster; I’m sure he is as happy as the rest of us!

    Michael Val
    (who knows the comments to the Cap’n are all in good mutual Auburn loving fun!)

  10. Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

    ……I did a little screaming, myself! We gave up 600 yards, but name me ANY team in the last 365 days that’s put that kind of POP on Johnny Football? Or stopped him with the game on the line? I am way beyond AMAZED at Ellis Johnson’s defense!

  11. restless6 says:

    So, what is the scenario for Auburn to win the West now?

    Oh, and Gus has to be the coach of the year and Ellis Johnson has to be the defensive coach of the year.

    Great staff, great players, and the belief that the team can win every game makes me excited for the future.

    In the words of Tre Mason, “We comin’. We comin'”

  12. Orange Talon Orange Talon says:

    When we sacked John FTBL on the last play, I jumped out of my chair (hit my head on the running ceiling fan) and yelled so loud that I scared my little dog out of the room.

    I have been critical of the defense all year, and we gave up another 600 yards last night, but when it mattered most, they showed up big time and I couldn’t be more proud of them. Further, I had predicted that we would be lucky to win 5 games this year and I am even proud of being so dead wrong.

    War Eagle!

  13. wpleagle wpleagle says:

    What can I say that hasn’t been said. What a great feeling, and I can remember thinking when Gus was the OC that it would be a blow if he left. Never dreamed he’d be HC.
    Attended the sloppy Tennessee – South Carolina game yesterday with my daughter (I’m a Tennessee Dad, and proud of her). Neither team seemed to control that game, dropped passes all over the place by both teams, but UT showed some surprising (to me) spunk in its defensive front. Except for one or two plays, pretty much stopped the USC running game. AU will have a fight on its hands in Neyland Stadium on November 9!
    WAR EAGLE. So proud of our guys.

  14. Col.Angus Col.Angus says:

    What a great win! I thought we had a chance but that was based more on hope than anything else. These tigers have made me a believer. For as maddening as Nick Marshal can be with his mistakes and poor throws, he continually makes big throws under pressure, he’s mentally tough and has played well in the toughest environments in the SeC. I do think we can beat any team left on the schedule but we will have tom limit the turnovers. We won’t play another defense as poor as A&Magain this year, although Arkynmay be close.
    Th greatest thing about last night, other than winning of course, was shutting that punks mouth, by sacking him with the game on the line…. I loved it!,,


  15. AubieCE AubieCE says:

    Called my Mom, my brother and my old roomate….
    Talked about how mentally tough AU is this year vs last year
    These guys believe
    Moral is to the physical as 3 is to 1 > Napoleon
    300 years later is still true…

  16. mikegee2 says:

    Well, we had to be on the road yesterday, coming back to Mobile. We had a list of 5 stations for the radio, as they tend to wax and wane along interstate 65. We were 2 miles from the house when Johnny Football took the Aggies for the last drive. When The tigers stopped them, I reached outside the car window and ripped off the magnetic Tigers sign and began waving and shouting at every intersection, and at every person on the sidewalks I could see. I have a very loud voice;( the kind you don’t want behind you at Auburn), and believe me, in only two mileS I went completely hoarse, and the poor magnetic sign was in tatters. I am 67 years old, and I can still feel the fire.

    When Ole Miss covered up the runback of LSU a couple hours later, I could only smile weakly.

    WDE!!!!! and look out SEC!!! WE BE BACK!!!

  17. Third Generation Tiger Third Generation Tiger says:

    AU shuts up JF + Jack of Dan = Good Times.

    What’s even better is that I don’t think we have even scratched the surface of what Malzahn and this staff will accomplish at Auburn.

  18. domaucan1 domaucan1 says:

    I wonder if there is anyone who still doubts the wisdom of our head coach search committee consisting of TWO Heisman trophy winners and an Auburn graduate who is an executive genius? They knew what they were doing and it shows.


    WAR EAGLE !!!

    GO BIG BLUE !!!

  19. AUTigerinBR says:

    I’m at the beach. Glad nobody in unit directly below. Stood on the balcony and screamed for all the beautiful gulf coast to hear!!

    Poor Capn– Its all in good fun.

    • Acid Reign Acid Reign says:

      …..Man, I remember fall beach trips. Not crowded, sunsets over the water… The wildest I’ve ever yelled at a beach condo was in 2004, in Galveston. Auburn beat LSU 10-9 that day, and there were folks 6 floors away that heard me when Campbell hit Taylor in the end zone!
