An Auburn Girl In A Crimson Sea

This is absolutely nothing new. It's just this time each year when I'm so rudely reminded how "crimson" the city of Birmingham is when it comes to football.

I went to WalMart today to see about getting a couple of cheap-o auburn outfits for the twins. I was happy when I came around the corner and saw a huge display of Auburn (and UAT) merchandise. As I was perusing the selection, I realized they had absolutely NOTHING for kids in Auburn colors, NOTHING. I really shouldn't have been surprised. For some reason every year we beat the shit out of UAT and, we still get no respect. What is it now? 6 years in a row?

On the way home, I stopped to pick up a couple of things from Publix. I happened upon a display of some UAT plates, cups, napkins, blah, blah.... I thought, Great! This will come in handy for our kickoff party this weekend, I stroll around thinking Auburn would be on the other side... NADA. Again, we are hosed. What the hell Birmingham? What does Auburn have to do to get a little love around here?

I guess I'm left to conclude, that Auburn will not whore themselves out to the likes of stores such as Wal-Mart. We aren't cheap and will demand the most for the best....

I feel the same way looking for Broncos stuff here in Chicago! I mean they are WAY better than the Bears. :)

Oh, we don't get any Auburn stuff up here - just Illinois... not even Northwestern.

Good luck in your search, and go WAR EAGLE!!

Its not that they dont carry Auburn stuff, its that they are sold out of it. They couldn't give that bammer stuff away if it came with a free gas card.

Joey :O)
