Auburn v Georgia

Every year we try our best to get to the Auburn/Georgia football game (be it in Auburn or Athens). So many of my relatives are georgia grads and fans it is always a fun rivalry. Well this year we knew it was not going to be much of a game with the way our Tigers have been playing but we decided to head down to Auburn for the weekend to see family, our beloved alma mater and hopefully some cheap game tickets.

First stop is almost always Mike and Ed's BBQ. We love this place, especially Andrew. 

Only place I know that serves sweet tea in a (clean) trashcan

We got to see lots of family while we were down in Auburn, including both of Andrew's grandmothers as well as his aunt and cousins. While we were visiting with "Mema", whose name is Reba Perry, we saw this on her wall. Such a sweet reminder of the family our little boy is named after.

All football season Kristen and I have been trying to get a picture with Aubie and finally succeeded at our last game. Figured out the secret is to be at the alumni tent right when it opens. I might be partial but I think we have the best mascot out there.

Night games in Jordan-Hare are beautiful. We found three tickets together from a sweet auburn fan on the streets. They were actually his daughters tickets, who couldn't be there because she was doing Hurricane Sandy relief up north. We were happy to pay for them...although thankful we did not have to pay anywhere close to face value. 

We had a good time at the game regardless of the score (although you can see Andrew's opinion of our tigers football abilities in the picture below...). We agreed after that the loudest cheers that night were  for 1) the Alabama loss and 2) the bands. At one point a UGA majorette was juggling, yes juggling, three flaming batons...that was impressive. 

Given our season, the stadium was impressively full...just shows how important the Auburn/Georgia rivalry is no matter the year. We didn't take a picture of the stadium at half-time...but there were not many folks left. We stayed until almost the 4th quarter and then beat the crowds (well what was left of them) and got some yummy Niffers for dinner.

Heres to hoping for a better year next year. War Eagle Always!
