FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF the yankees. They can't touch my gator hate but they are definitely in my top 3 most despised teams. Maybe they can drink some tea on their short porch after today's game ends their season.
I’m pretty sure I have enjoyed over half of the third Saturdays in October The Good Lord is going to bless me with so I am not about to throw one away tomorrow. I’m going to enjoy it no matter what
With that said I’m going to take a trip down memory lane.
82 is the first memory I have of the 3rd Saturday in October. Sitting around a radio listening to John Ward call the victory with my GrandFather. Man oh man what I’d do to have this one day over again.
85 is the next memory. Dale Jones Just grabbed it out of mid air and Little ole Van tiffin couldn’t get it done
87or 88 I Remember that damn Toss sweep over and over and over and over again
91 I went to the 9-6 game with my Dad. I remember walking what seemed like miles to the car afterword and still hearing those bastards cheering Roll Tide.
94 I remember very distinctly walking out of Neyland stadium saying with 110% confidence the Vols were coming and that Bama wasn’t going to beat us again for a long time
And in 95 it took one glorious play to prove that true. Touchdown on play number 1
The 2008 game was SO hard to swallow. Fulmer was on his way out and Bama fans really were plentiful in Neyland that day.
Not many memories worth noting in the last decade but no doubt in my mind the Third Saturday in October will return to its rightful place on college football soon. Maybe not soon enough but It’s coming!
Well said...sounds like me in my hardcore Braves fandom days. I still love baseball, especially live baseball, but free agency and bad fundamentals has reeeeaaally ruined MLB for me. I miss the old days. When I lived in Clearwater/Largo I used to go to several games a year at the Trop, but I never could establish a real diehard connection the Rays. Like I said greed and the MLB system ruined it for me.
