We Are The Champions, Again!
Unless you've been hiding under a rock (or heavily medicated) for the past 24 hours, you have surely heard that the college football BCS national championship game was played last night in New Orleans. My Alabama boys beat our bitter SEC-rival LSU in convincing fashion 21-0. Never in the history of the BCS has the losing team scored "0" points - in any BCS bowl, not just the championship.
This was a huge victory for the Alabama program, one we'll be celebrating until football season begins next summer. I'm already looking forward to the Alabama season opener - it will be played in the "new" Dallas Cowboys Stadium, vs. Michigan. Now THAT is going to be huge - and I plan to be there!
Proud of my Alabama quarterback, A.J. McCarron. He is from my hometown of Mobile, and comes from a great family. A class act with a bright future!
Also proud of fellow Gulf Coast native, Trent Richardson. Trent hails from Pensacola (where I now work every day). While playing high school football in Pensacola, Trent broke all of Emmitt Smith's records. For those who don't know their football, Emmitt went on to become a star running back at The University of Florida, and a three-time Super Bowl champion with the Dallas Cowboys.
To my fellow Bama fans, enjoy this victory! It's extra sweet! Roll Tide!
