< <Well put...
< < Driving back from Auburn to Birmingham tonight, obviously
< < with the Tiger's performance, I noticed a sheet with a spray
< < painted message on it hanging in the yard of a trailer park in
< < Childersburg on
< < 280. Maybe some of you saw it as well. The message: "Auburn sucks". My
< < first thought was "That is really typical of most Bama fans; a
< < bunch
< < inbred, trailer trash, redneck losers-in-life with a foul mouths."
< < five miles up the road, in Harpersville, a group of similar looking
< < were gathered at the towns only stop light on 280, and were
< < obscenities and holding up "Auburn sucks" and "Roll Tide" signs. Then
< < started thinking about what it means to be an Auburn fan, and to love
< < Auburn. I realized how truly blessed we are to be Auburn people. While
< < we stereotype Bama fans as above (and are sometimes correct in our
< < assumptions), we must remember that most of them haven't had or seized
< < same opportunities as we have. Most of us are privileged to have had
< < opportunity to attend Auburn, attend Auburn events, and/or experience
< < Auburn atmosphere. 99% of Alabama fans will never set foot on a
< < campus and have no idea where Tuscaloosa is even located. As Auburn
< < people, we don't place our own self worth on whether our team wins or
< < loses. We love Auburn no matter what. Lets count our blessings and
< < remember that It's Great to be an Auburn Tiger!
