Six in a Row

The Iron Bowl - Auburn vs. Alabama. The most important football game of the year for the fans of these two teams. This year Parker got to experience his first Iron Bowl in person. We went down on Thanksgiving night and truly had Thanksgiving on the Plains with fried turkeys and all the fixings. This game is always sold-out and tickets are very scarce, if some are found they are extremely expensive. However, being apart of the Auburn family is such a great experience. As Parker, Mitzi and I looked for tickets, we had an Auburn fan come up and sell his ticket to us for face value (Club ticket with free food no less) and then we had another Auburn fan simply hand an extra ticket they had to Parker. This truly captures the Auburn spirit. We had a great time at the game. Parker would yell 'Defense', sing the fight song and tell us who every player is as he has learned their names and numbers. The best part was as the clock dwindled down, we all began singing, 'It's great to be an Auburn Tiger' and Parker looked at me and said, "Daddy, this is the best!" As you notice from the picture above, it didn't take long for Parker to understand the importance of this game as Auburn won a sixth straight Iron Bowl, 17-10. War Eagle!
