Years ago, I was a true, crimson wearing, had the offical BAMA horns on my RV, Alabama Roll Tide Roll football fan...had the privilege to attend many games and followed the Tide and loved it. Now a funny true story... In 1982 (?) I was in Knoxville the third Saturday in October, We had a new coach, Ray Perkins, the "Bear" had died. Bama was on a roll winning over Tennessee, 11 or 12 straight wins (?)... Sell out crowd and BAMA Lost, needless to say, the Vol fans when wild, our group head back to the RV and sitting around watching the Tennessee fans celebrate and "taking it" all of a sudden a Kid waving a Tennessee banner ran in the middle of our group, knock over our table, and was shouting Go Vols, we beat BAMA, we showed you and so on....
Then his father grapped him, told us he was sorry and said, " I am so sorry, he has never seen or heard of a Tennessee team beating Alabama"
The rest of the story, For the next years, with Bama troubles with coaches, I soon realized that I was a "Bear Byrant fan" and not a true Bama fan, my wife attended Auburn, I send my son to Alabama, he transferred to Auburn and loved it. So if Bama is playing...I will watch if in from of TV and get excited, I pull for any SEC team, including Auburn.
Next time I see you ask about my favorite "Bear Byrant story" true story...
