A Day

This weekend brought a glimpse of Saturdays in the fall. The football team held its spring scrimmage game on Saturday, bringing thousands of people into Tuscaloosa. While the masses enjoy getting a free glimpse into the 2013 squad, there was much more going on in the sports world. The softball team swept Mississippi State and the baseball team put up a brutal fight against LSU both Saturday and Sunday, losing in 16 innings Saturday and winning Sunday in the 10th inning. The men’s and women’s golf teams each won their respective SEC championship, bringing home even more hardware for an ever expanding case.

With friends in town for the scrimmage, it also gave me the opportunity to enjoy lots of good food and quality time with friends I don’t see very often. The weather was beautiful. Sunny and pleasant. And the same weather promises to return this week. Spring might actually be here now! Have a fabulous weekend!

Celebrating Good Times

It was a big week and weekend here in Tuscaloosa. Thursday we got snow! It snowed for a few hours and it finally began sticking. The amounts ranged from 1 inch to 3 inches and everyone loved it.

There was even a snowball fight on campus, including a few football players. Unfortunately the snow melted almost as quickly as it came, but we made the most of it while it was here.

The Roll Tide weekend began on Friday, when Alabama’s gymnastics team hosted its first home meet of the season. The No. 6 Crimson Tide defeated No. 5 LSU 196.575-195.525. Alabama’s on a quest to win three straight national championships, and is so far, so good with a 2-0 start.

On Saturday, Alabama celebrated its 15th national championship. For the first time since the 1992 championship, Alabama featured a parade as part of the celebration. Before the parade fans could take their picture with the three national championship trophies. But, the highlight of the event seemed to be after the speeches, when Alabama allowed the massive crowd of people to go onto the field. The entrance was roped off to lead us through the tunnel just like the football team does on Saturdays. I’ve been on the field before, but its always fun to go again.

It was a great weekend, and its even better knowing we have a short week ahead of us.
