Ladies and Gentlemen –
So here I am in Satan’s Butt Crack….
Watching the National Championship Game…
Yes “The” National Championship Game
Yelling loud enough that, according to NASA, lights dim as far away as San Antonio
Then it happened….
Alabama’s attempted fake punt on the first possession of the first quarter caused my spleen to jump out of my belly button…
If that wasn’t bad enough…..
I had no internet connection after the game…..
Maybe I was yelling too much?
Never mind that’s impossible…
But I am doing much better now, Thank you all for the cards and letters.
So let’s talk about the game…..
It’s still hard to believe….
The University of Alabama Crimson Tide
Are the 2009 undefeated National Champions of Collegiate Football
The “13th” Championship for the University of Alabama
The Tide’s first Heisman Trophy winner…..
The first time the University of Alabama ever defeated Texas….
The Championship game itself…
As we all know…..
Could have gone either way…
Colt would have stayed in the game or been able to come back and play?
The Longhorns wouldn’t have turned the ball over (repeatedly) and Alabama scored before the first half ended?
But there was no quit in the Longhorns…
Texans are tougher than that…
They came storming back…
But they fell short…
The Texas Longhorns, coaches, players, alumni and fans are nothing but first class…
Always have been and always will be….
I don’t know if my buddy Lee is still on the couch in Texas….
but I understand his Longhorn bride is as sweet as she is beautiful, so I feel confident all is well by now.
As for me….
I am so very proud for my beloved University of Alabama…..
The Mighty Crimson Tide Coaches, players, fans and alumni…
I am so proud, I am speechless….
I am Truly in awe….
It’s been a long time my friends…
The National Championship is back Home…..
Sweet Home Alabama…….
