Spirit knew what was about to happen… Our Eagle was not to be outdone

By on October 28th, 2012 in Football, Uncategorized 7 Comments »

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!!

War Eagle
Way to go Spirit!

    I dashed this out in 5 minutes, from my heart. My apologies for the punctuation and grammer. Hard to dwell on that when you are emotional.

  2. mikeautiger says:

    Amen! We will be back.

  3. No doubt AU will be back. But I think Spirit was simply trying to leave the stadium before traffic got too bad in the 2nd quarter.

    Right on My Auburn!

    Outstanding post. History proves your right … Auburn will be back.

    War Eagle!

    Nice message! I was watching the Gator/UGA game outside the baseball stadium when I saw Spirit fly over the scoreboard. Perhaps Spirit was trying to leave before “Johnny Football” started the scoring frenzy on Auburn. I did enjoy talking with the Texas A&M fans prior to the game; however, there was an eerie silence after the game as I walked to my car. No one was talking about the game. Of course, Auburn fans had nothing to talk about, but I did expect more excitement from the Texas A&M fans. Of course, what is left to say after your team just got destroyed 63-21. I do commend the Texas A&M fans for not rubbing it in like fans from some other SEC schools. We all know who they are.

    Auburn will be back. Change is a good thing and it is time.

    …..That eagle flight was pretty amazing, but I didn’t get but one halfway clear photo shot. Most of the flight took place over the southwest corner of the stadium, and I was in the east stands, on the north side of the fifty. Don’t know how the pros do it, but I try to frame the eagle and make it be still in the screen, and shoot as many shots as possible.

  7. It was the funniest thing I’ve ever seen in the pregame.
    Spirit knows how to have folks talking about him for days after the game. Remember when he tried to fly into one of the luxury suites?
