101 in 1001: Number 66

Hello again. I'm home sick today, so I thought I'd do a make-up post for you. So without further ado:

66. Go to an Alabama football game

Ok, way back on November 19, Matt and I joined our friends Micah and Gloria and headed up to Tuscaloosa to see Alabama play Georgia Southern. Micah's parents bought us all tickets for Micah's birthday. : )

We got there early and walked around campus for a while. It was pretty crowded, but the weather was nice. And the trees were really pretty with all their fall-colored leaves. This was one of my favorites:

It was much prettier in person. ; )  It was Gloria's first time visiting Alabama's campus, so the guys took her on a tour. It was kind of sweet, but a little amusing. Especially since one of their favorite parts was the "fancy" port-a-potty that was, and I quote, just like "a really nice hotel bathroom." : )

When it was nearing kick-off time, we headed into Bryant-Denny Stadium.

I didn't think the game was going to be very exciting, but Georgia Southern did a lot better than I thought they would! We still won 45 to 21 though. : )  It's always fun watching Alabama play. They have a very committed fan base, so the crowd is usually entertaining, and the Million Dollar Band never disappoints during the half-time show.

Here are a few pictures inside the stadium:

One of these days, I'd love to go to an Iron Bowl, or the Alabama vs. Auburn game. That's our big rival, for those of you who don't live in the Southeast. ; )  Tickets are pretty hard to come by though, so I won't hold my breath...

It was pretty late by the time we got home, but we all had a good time. Hopefully I'll get to go to at least one game again next season. : )
